Mothers Day

Mothers day in this house doesn't mean making one card, I make my mum one, one for his mum and one for his stepmum.. I normally run out of ideas on the first one but thankfully a stack of bright papers and my bigshot inspired me this year :)
He just needs to pick who gets which card now lol!
I love the delicate corner pieces that my bigshot cuts, perhaps the cheapest but best die I've bought! The Pennyblack elephant stamp is still one of my long term favourites, gets used so often as it's so versatile and fun to use.
I've used blooms on both images as just colouring them in left the card looking a bit flat and dull so hopefully these just lift it that little bit.
A card for my mum, totally in love with the brightly coloured paper so had to make the whole card blend with it. Ran the letters through my bigshot (of course) just to give the card a little depth and detail.

As always mum found a pair of earrings somewhere, took a photo and sent it to me saying 'I'd love these in purple' so here we go, mums purple mothers day present earrings that I made for her.
I'm entering these as my entry for the Crafty Creations Challenge 'Mothers Day'.

Yes Peggy I made the earrings I seem to do a lot of earrings for mum as she never finds what she likes in the colour she wants it in :)
