These Roses are red!

Evening all!

Thank you for your lovely comments from my last post & welcome to my lovely new followers! :-)

Today,I've had time to have a crafty play around & had a break away from making Christmas cards. I decided to make my Mother a card – for no reason at all, just because…. :-)
Once I finished making this card I then wrote a Daughter to Mother poem.

Here is my card:

Ingredients used:
6 x 6 blank card
Backing paper, rose topper, sentiment & insert from
Card Creations-flowers in bloom CD
(printed on to)Water colour paper
Red holographic card 
Nellie's multi frame circle die
T!m Holtz 'tattered rose' distress ink
Roses & leaves, ribbon & gems from my stash.

I shall be taking the card over to her tomorrow -  My son is healing nicely from his broken pelvis & is less reliant on me now so I can ease up & have a little more 'me' time & able to go out without worrying if he'll be ok :-)

I'm off now to take a journey round blog-land to catch up...

Umtil next time..

Mandy :-)

Cadbury Blue Wedding!

Afternoon Peeps!

I had a request to make a wedding card but not of the ‘usual’ kind – I was to make it incorporating a Cadbury blue background along with white & Cadbury blue butterflies! 

I'm really not too sure about it. I keep putting it away, taking it out & looking at it again...putting it down etc.. - I think I like it! I just hope the recipient likes it when she picks it up!! 

Not a good day for me healthwise so just popping this on blogger & then going back to rest.

Hope you are all well & enjoying your day :)

Until next time,

Mandy :-)
