Please forgive my tardiness over these past 10 days. I have so much going on at the moment it is hard to keep up. Perhaps the best thing that has happened is that I have become and Aunty again, last Friday (13th) to little Pippa Lee Burke....a beautiful baby girl to my SIL Neridah and hubby Gary. She is the cherished reward at the end of a rollercoaster journey. We visited her on Saturday, but sadly my camera was not playing nice and the pics I have are not that FAB, but here she is.....
So I think that it is fitting that I (finally) post my Mother's Day card. My MIL has a beautiful garden and I really wanted to do something special. both she and Poppy do so much for us....it was the least I could do. I had not done a Tri Shutter card for some time and I really loved playing with "A Rose is a Rose" set again. This is what I came up with........
I teamed it up with the Bella Rose (now retired....sniff) DSP and got the Nesties out again. I mounted the rosebuds on dimensionals as they framed the "Mum". It is also a little hard to see, but I stamped off a rose and leaves that you can JUST see under the Mum. (I think the Pink Pirouette Rose got lost in the glare of the sun!!)
These cards have such a WOW factor when opened.....and this is my attempt at WOW....
This card accompanied a rose bush in the same colours as the card.....as hubby after much prompting STILL forgot to get anything!!! At least it looked as if some thought went into it (hope she doesn't read my blog...LOL). Needless to say our wedding anniversary (which also fell on Mother's day was forgotten).
My children woke me with the blinding turning on of the bedroom light...v v eager to share their purchases from the school's Mother's Day Stall. Here is what I received.....
Miss 6 gave me the VERY blingy earings and 10 min Makeover Body Shop voucher and Mast 10 gave me a new coffee mug for work, complete with Tim Tams and a Vegemite sachet....for that Brekky in bed!! Now for all those SU folk out there....am I crazy in thinking that the pattern on the mug closely resembles the large flower from Fabulous Flowers (08-09 I B&C...pg 79 for those playing at home)?????
Thanks for popping by and I will endeavour to try and post a little more regularly.....sanity pending.
