Mad May continued...

With everything hitting at once again I had to come up with a simple card for my Mum and Mother In Law... So I got to play with my cameo again and learn how to use the offset and mirror tools as well as welding and tracing so my simple card taught me an awful lot!  MUM is embossed with my ever trusty Cuttlebug with "Quikcutz - flowers"... I hope they like them!

Now I know almost all Mum's love flowers and my Mum in particular LOVES Orchids... so I did spend some time making a Silhouette file for the orchids... I inked them with Memento's and used my brush markers to do the details.  The frame is Lori Whitlock and the verses were sourced from the 'net.
Anyways... thanks for stopping by... *hugs* Sarah

Mad May!

G'day!  Well it is usually only March Madness that is a little frenzied... but May has become just as busy... May 12th is My Nieces 21st Birthday, Mother's Day and I will have been married to my dear Husband for 12 years too... I do NOT know how he has put up with me for that long!

So I have been busy between all the school holiday activities and finally with School going back today I got time to finish most things!

21st Birthday...

I made this "book" card using a cut file made by Amanda Davis... Absolutely gorgeous design and then topped it off with a flourish I found on Silhouette store and the most important words :-)

A few ribbon flowers for decoration and a butterfly as I remember being in my vege garden with a 6 year old Shauni watching butterflies and pulling weeds... Okay now I feel very old!

The all important box made using my Ultimate Crafters Companion and Cuttlebug... the "tag" is embossed with "Antique Keys" by Darice.

Ok I will write another card for the Mother's Day cards and gifts so the load time is quick so click on the next one :-)

Happy Crafting
