Happy Mother’s Day…

Good morning everyone, today is a very special day for me, I share my birthday with Mother’s day’, So todays post is dedicated to my Mom. I don’t normally post personal things on Facebook/blog but I am truly blessed to have my mom. In July last year my mom was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and the ‘experts’ gave her 3 months to live, to say my family and I were devastated is an understatement. Today March 30th 2014 my Mom is still with us, she isn’t in the best of health but we still have her here and she keeps positive and she keeps smiling. So Happy Mother’s day to my precious Mom I love you more and more each day xx.

Spellbinders grand squares, Spellbinders scalloped borders 2, heartfelt creations majestic blooms and matching stamp.

Rosette…

Morning everyone…I have another card to show you, quite simple again but sometimes thats just the way I like em. I have grown an obsession with rosettes but not really been that good at making them until I saw one of Sue Wilsons posts and how she did her rosette. So this is mine… I have used Spellbinders grand squares, Spellbinders stately circles, Sue Wilson italian border,, The circles in the centre of the rosette are from Anna Griffin and so is the paper. The butterfly is made from a mould & Martha Stewart clay.

Simple…

Hi everyone, just a simple card today using the tattered lace blooms again, the photo really doesn’t do it justice as the glittered flowers don’t show that well. So I have used Spellbinders grand squares, branch die is by impression obsession, tattered lace blooms, Embossing folder and sentiment is Anna Griffin.
