Mothers day or Valentines?



Hi me again!! Post post post today!!
I started making this last night & have finished sticking the flowers on today. I'm having trouble deciding on what type of card to make it though. Initially it was going to be Valentines (forever yours sentiment) but now I think it would actually make a rather nice Mothers Day (just for you mum) card...hmmm decisions!
Anyways whilst I'm deciding here it is to be entered into 2 challenges.

Sketch Saturday.........the sketch!
I found this sketch quite easy to work with & really enjoyed it.

SophistiCat Challenge Blog..........fancy borders
I have used my martha stewart border punch all the way around. I have then used chalks to highlight the embossed flowers.

The FF bear I cut out from some FF papers I didnt colour it I'm not that good!!!
The oval shape die cuts are from Susie's shop Die Cut Dreams
The papers are Forever Friends.

Christmas Crafting, thank you cards & more.....

Today I decided to have a little bit of craft time. I have been wanting to make a count down to christmas for ages after I made one a couple years back. I have used Lili of the Valley stamp, SU papers, Crafty Sentiments tag die for numbers & coloured the bear with watercolours.


Last week I also made these sweet yet simple christmas cards ready...aren't I organised!!! Again its a LOTV stamp coloured with watercolours. The sentiment is SU & I added some pearls to finish them off.

It was my father in law's 70th yesterday so I used the old dude from Make it Crafty's flirty seniors digi stamp & coloured it with promarkers. The doggy is a daisy & dandelion stamp & is for a friend's birthday. I coloured it with watercolours.

I figure I may need a few thank you cards so I've made some using my 12x12 Pepper & Friends papers. There's these simple ones & then some more fancy bigger ones.

Then there's special ones. I have made the decoupage…
