Happy Mother's Day!!

Evening all.

Now I know it's a little late in the day but I have been working all weekend and this is the first chance I've had to post! I want to wish everyone a happy mother's day! I hope you all got some lovely cards and gifts from your children. For those,who like me are childless, I hope you are enjoying your weekend regardless!

Today I want to share with you the card I gave my mum today. Now she's received it I know it's safe to post it on here! Now this post is a bit picture heavy so bear with me please! Lol!

I made this twisted easel card at one of my recent tuesday night classes at Julies..

the main panel...

and a bit of an arty farty angle...

And here is a matching box that we made to put the card in....

I love the dimension of the daffodils....

Then we made a matching gift tag which I attached to my mum's present (Some red wine & chocolate which she's probably enjoying as I write this!).

I made my Mother in Law's card a month or so ago but I needed a tag for her present too, and as we only made one at Julies I decided to make another. I used the tag above as inspiration and this is what I came up with...

The daisy is a clip that I used to attach the tag to the present.


CS: SU Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive,Whisper White

Paper: SU Brights Pattern Designer Series

Sentiment: Broadsheet Alphabet, Occasional Greetings, Just Believe

Stamps: SU 'Just Believe', A la carte 'Flower Accent'

Tools: SU Scallop Border Punch & corner punch, Oval punch, Large Designer Label punch

Misc: SU assorted ribbon

Well, I spoke to my mum earlier from work and I think it's safe to say she liked her card and gift, I hope you do too!

That's a long enough post from me today I think! I'm off for a nice soak in the bath, then it's early to bed as I've to be up at 6am for work!!

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Vicky ~x~

What a gorgeous card Vicky and daffodils always remind me of mother's day. The tags are fab too - bet the ladies were over the moon with them! I reckon you're still in Mexican mode with those beautiful bright colours!
