Happy Mother's Day....

Happy Mother's Day to all who are celebrating.... I have had a great day.... a lazy morning and the pottering about afternoon.  Last night my son and his girlfriend cooked dinner ( it's her mother's birthday today as well, so they are spending it there) and gave me a lovely cyclamen plant. My daughter posted a lovely note to me on Facebook ~  tonight I'll be Skyping with her and I rang and talked to my Mum for nearly an hour..... a fabulous day all in all.

I decided I wanted to make an elegant card for my Mum so hunted around till I found some lovely elegant papers. 
For my Mum

My base card and the lace edging are a lovely soft pinky-salmon card from Stampin Up's pastel cardstock.  The PP is from Rosie's Studio and the lovely ribbon is seam binding from Donna... I only have one Mother's Day stamp by Stamp-It.  I used Spellbinders to cut the circle and the eyelet scallop.  Rolled some roses from the PP using a Die-Namics die.  The stick pin, I made with some millinery pins I picked up at Spotlight.  I added some beads and pushed it in.  These pins do not have a sharp point thank goodness as I had to post this card to Australia.

The last few days my Mojo has been working overtime!  Ideas and cards just seem to be flowing... I did a few ATC's, made some more Penny Black based cards...  I've bought a few magazines and the ideas have been coming thick and fast.  I love looking at a card and then using the items I have on hand to make something it has inspired me to do.  There are always so many techniques to try.  Saw an amazing tissue flower that I'm off to try now.  If it works, no doubt you'll see it here or on my Flickr photostream

Hope you got to do some crafting on National Scrapbooking Day and that you have a great Mother's Day if you are a mother...

I'd also like to thank all the lovely ladies who over the past few weeks have sent me such amazing cards.... Mariette, Greta, Mildred .... thank you all.  

Take care all


Dawn
