Ah, the sun is shining! Luvvly jubbly!
I'm a bit late with my post this morning, as I had a few techno issues with MS Word that hubby downloaded last night. Made all my tif images into MS image files, and I had a HUGE panic that I would have to go and change them all - but I figured it out without having to do that (phew!)
Onto my card for today then, my DT piece for the new theme at the
which this week is
'Something for Mum'.
Doesn't have to be for Mother's Day, just as long as it is for Mum! I had blogged last week the card I sent down to my Mum. This week I am blogging the card that I made for hubby's Mum!
I went and made a twisted easel card for her. Hope she understands the wee drawing I sent down to explain how this stands up. She won't have seen this type of card before!
The image I have used here is the 'Mother's Day Freebie' that I put on the Delicious Doodles Blog a few weeks ago. It's still there if you want to go snag it folks!!
I made a little ribbon bow from some organza that I have had forever! Then I added a jump ring and put a wee heart charm on it. I have put some large red gems in the corners of the card for a bit of bling, along with some tiny ones in the flower centres. These are all made with punches and spare pearlescent card from the stash.
My papers are from Bearly Mine Designs. Red and green cardstock also from the stash. I had to make a presentation box for it to sit in, so that it wouldn't get trashed in the post! This I made with my score-board and some spare white card, with some extra dp on the lid.
Hope you can join in with us this week folks! See you there!
