Happy Mother's Day :)

Wishing you a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY :) I hope you are being spoilt by your families just as much as I am!! Breaky in bed and a chance to play at the craft desk:)!! The Mother's Day Card below is one that I made this week using the colours from Colour Q  (cQc#136); the theme of punches at Stampin' Royalty; (SR#123) along with Stampin' Up! papers, sentiment and punches and a dash of Cuttlebug embossing. 
The card came together so nicely that I made another one with a little variation...some bling and a 'Just for You'  sentiment:)
 The next card that I have to share with you uses this week's sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday...
Kiddlywink 1's friend asked me to make a card for her Dad's 50th birthday this weekend and with Dad being a train driver I searched through the stash and found this train stamp from many moons ago (think that its one that the kids received as a pressie that I just knew would come in handy one day). So with Cuttlebug embossing; Stampin' Up! papers and sentiment; and the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday I set out to create a special birthday card:)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)


  1. What an awesome masculine card. Boy's just adore trains my boys love Thomas the Tank Engine and played with it for hours and read the books. Love your colours and pretty design papers and I love how you embossed the back panel. Great card and thanks so much for joining us this week on Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
