Sweet Sketch Wednesday #99

Its my mums birthday tomorrow. As soon as I saw Tilda with daffodil I just had to have her for my mums card, as the daffodil is the national flower of Wales (and yes my mum is welsh). Arlana has provided another brillliant sketch. My mojo seemed to have gone on holiday this week, so thank god for this sketch that just gave me the help I needed. The patterned paper is Milton & Co, I've used my Martha Stewart picket fence punch for the 3 strips, the orange ribbon is Stampin' Up and the gorgeous daffodils are Wild Orchid Crafts. I made the leaves myself (please don't laugh), and creased them on my Scor Pal. The sentiment is Lily of the Valley. Thanks again Arlana.

Sketch & Stash Challenge 60 - Free Choice Sketch

A brilliant idea at Sketch & Stash Challenge this week. You go through the Sketch Catalogue and choose a sketch you fancy using. I chose Sketch 20 and used it to create my easel card. One of my friends is celebrating her 50th birthday, so I thought the sketch was just perfect. The patterened paper I used was by Stampin Up called Cottage Wall. I used my lacey circle nestie for the centre circle and used Maya Road chipboard numbers (Philadelphia) which I covered with Sugar Coating lilac glitter. I used my bow easy again on the ribbon and the flowers are Wild Orchard Crafts. The sentiment is one of the new ones by Lily of the Valley.

Happy Mothers Day

Its nearly Mothers Day, a time to spoil your mum. I've used Prima Sparkling Spring papers and my new Fizzy Moon stamp, how cute is he (I'm guessing its a he but I suppose it could easily be a she lol). I've also added glossy accents onto his nose but you can't actually see that in the photo but I promise he has a lovely shiny nose. I'm entering this card into a few challenges. Cupcake Craft Challenge No 135 is Flowers for mum, I've used Vickys sketch from Sketch n Stash Challenge 58, and Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge #6 is For Mum/Mothers Day.
