A little more Mother's Day creativity:)

A little bit of 'Bugs & Embossing' inspiration over at Stamps R Us and the 'Wings' theme over at Stamp Something this week led me searching through the stamps to find this cutsie dragonfly stamp that I've had for ages...a Kaisercraft stamp that I just knew would come in handy one day lol:) A Mother's Day card creation that uses Cuttlebug embossing, bling things from the local craft shop and gorgeous papers, ink, sentiment, ribbon & label punch from Stampin' Up!

With K1's orthodontic appointments at the end of this week keeping us from returning 'back to school' for Term 2...I decided to leave a crafty Mother's Day package for my relief teacher to do on Thursday:) So I created this 'good idea' in my head that became a little bigger than anticipated... 24 embossed cards; 24 pillow box die cuts - to hold 24 wrapped Tim Tams & 24 teabags; many paper punched flowers and the other bits and pieces were left for the PP/Yr 1 & the relief teacher to create for their mums:) I'm sure they will be made with love! (and hopefully not too much frustration - lol) it is...the "Mother's Day Relief Pack"...

Sample of front cover - blank white embossed cards ready for kids to colour & decorate:)

Sample for inside the card to attach Pillow Box:)

Fingers crossed that my 'seemed like a good idea at the time' will be an enjoyable one!


  1. Your cards are wonderful! I'm with you on the stamps (regular & digi) that get forgotten and I'm so glad to find them and use them again! Thanks for playing in our challenge at STamps R Us!

  2. These are great! I love the idea of the kids coloring. I am sure that everyone will have a great time. Thank you for joining us at Stamps R Us.
