Happy Mother's Day

I thought I'd start by showing you the cards my children made for me. This is Josh's card which he made on the computer at school.This is the insideand this is the back. Charming eh?! lolAnd my daughter raided my stash (with permission of course) to make me this cute card using one of my favourite Penny Black stamps.

This year I thought I'd make a photo frame for my mum. It didn't quite turn out how I wanted to. I think its because now I'm working I just haven't been able to spend the time on it that I would have liked to have done. Maybe it will look better when it has a nice photo in it?! Failing that I might ask for it back and re-vamp it for next year. ;0)

This is how the photo frame started out. and this is how it looked when I'd finished with it... or ran out of time to do anything else with it.

The papers, labels and sentiment are all from a set by K&Co. The flowers are made with die cut by Marriane Designs and two other paper punches.

For the card I used the same K&Co papers and the Marrianne Designs die cut to make the flowers. The rabbit stamp is by Penny Black and coloured with Twinkling H2Os. The Happy Mother's Day stamp is by Inka Stamp Designs.
For the inside I used a clear stamp by Inkadoo it says "You make me smile all over my face" which my mum does. She's the best mum in the world ever! :0)

That just leaves me to say Happy Mother's Day to all you Mums out there in Blog land. Hope you enjoy your special day.
