Crafty Pad Challenge Wk 14/Happy Mothers Day

Good morning ladies, i trust you are having the best Mothers Day ever. Im pre-scheduling this post, so will update you on mine later.

Can not believe its week 14 at the Crafty Pad Challenge already. This week the theme is a card for someone else in your life who is special other than your mum.

I decided not to name anyone, but made a special love card. I have someone in mind to send it to, but will be keeping it a secret incase she reads my blog!

This lovely bear stamp is suitable for a new born card too. Im going to make one of those this week. The hearts are a cuttlebug die cut and again flowers are prima. The gorgeous papers are from SU sent to me by Katrina. Thank you hunny.

This is my favourite Martha Stewart punch. Now available in the UK through Personal Impressions distributors.

Leanne Ellis Card

I love this Leanne Ellis Image, i have used some free papers from the Making Cards magazine and a bit of silver miri card.

Ribbon is from my own stash, double faced satin. The flower is the retro whate of a punch with a jewellery bead cap centre ands atin rose bud.

The hearts have been glazed to give a 3d appearance, not sure you can see from this photo. Also stickles on the flower.

Lovely cards, and I love these stamps but they are a tad expensive to buy the whole sheet or two.

Maybe I should buy some individual stamps!
