Good Morning everyone, Bit dull and lifeless here today but making these lovely bright spring coloured cards seems to be cheering me up some.
Today I have another Mother's day card to share with you, and again I have used my new CD Rom for the image and backing papers. This is for an order for a friend of mine so I hope she likes it.
Image/backing papers from CD Rom (papercraft inspirations)

I am entering this into the challenge over at A Spoon full of sugar and the challenge this week is a sketch.
Also entering into the challenge at Papertake Weekly which is triple tastic (3 of anything - my 3 flowers/papers)

Mother's Day Card

I received my copy of Papercraft Inspirations through the post yesterday and the free gift this month is a CD rom called 'Favourites edition'. It has on over 500 printable elements using the characters forever friends, country companions, Hugs and Honey and Daisy and Dandelion. It is fantatstic, definately worth buying the mag for.

I am totally loving the forever friends elements on the disc as FF are my favourite to work with anyway. You get decoupage sheets and everything but for a change I set myself the challenge to make my 1st card using the disc with one of the other sets so here is a Mother's Day card I have made using one of the Country Compainions images and papers from FF section.

I used my cricut cart Storybook to cut the 'MUM' and the flowers are from my stash. The 'with love' embellishment is also printed from off the disc.
I hope you like it.

Boys Card

I always seem to struggle when it comes to boys/mens cards and never know what to do for them so I was a little bit apprehensive when I needed a 5th birthday card for a boy (Roslyn is off to a party tomorrow for 1 of her school friends) until his mum told me he loves Ben 10. So I made the following card on her advice.
I have used the 'stars' CB folder on the plain card
DP are a prima set 'my little guy collection'
I used my cricut to cartridge Alphalicous to cut the 5 and 'today' then put them through the CB folder 'swiss dots'.
I have chalked around the entire card using Dovecrafts 'brights' set as it looked to plain in just white.
The image was downloaded from the internet and then resized in My Craft Studio.

I hope he likes it.
Any comments much appreciated.

Papertake Weekly challenge - Anything goes

 I made this card for a friends mum this week for her birthday. I have used lots of 'old' stash to make this card. Infact the only new thing is the round sentiment which I downloaded (very naughty as cant remember where from lol)

This fits in over at the challenge at Papertake Weekly - anything goes, with the added extra of using something old.
It also fits into a few other challenges;
Wild Orchid Challenge - Anything goes
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Flowers everywhere
Stamp Something - Flowers

I hope you like it and any comments are always appreciated
