Mother's Day!

Hope all you mum's out there had a faberooney day yesterday, I know I did. My kids bought me some rubber stamps although they never knew till yesterday, lol.
Anyway I would like to share a project I made for my mum. she is nearly 80 and is very fit and active for her age. I think that is what keeps her so young.

This is a Tote that I purchased through Here. Her tutorials are fabulous. I did have to enlarge some of the measurements to fit our A6 cards. I used cardstock rather than designer paper. I also used one of the background stamps to make my card look like designer paper. This one I used the paisley stamp.
Onto the cards.
For these cards I used the Tea and crumpets designer paper. The stamp set is birthday best. This is one of the cheaper sets from Stampin' Up! but the quality is fabulous all the same. I have used pretty in pink, and always artichoke cardstock.

Again I have used tea and crumpets DSP. Chocolate chip cardstock and Always artichoke. The stamp set is Crazy for cupcakes. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to just stamp two lots of the cupcakes, side by side. This really is a great piece of kit. I have embellished it with chocolate chip and pretty in pink taffeta ribbon. You get heaps on a reel for only £5.50
This last one is using the same DSP. Chocolate chip and So Saffron cardstock. The stamp sets used where again Crazy for Cupcakes (my all time favourite) and the hostess stamp set Best yet. This is available for free if you order products of £150 or more. Obviously the more you order the higher the free merchandise you would also be allowed to get for FREE! If you want to know please get in touch.
Just a little update on my brother. He had a heart attack last Thursday and was taken to hospital. They have since unblocked the artery that has caused the problem. Hopefully he may of been sent home late yesterday but as its a tad too early to ring him, I don't know if he has yet. He seems to be in high spirits considering everything he is going through. Thanks again for all your well wishes, they do mean a lot.
