Happy Mother`s Day

This is the card I made for my Mum for Mother`s Day today. She is a fantastic cook and loves to bake especially cakes and cupcakes so when I saw these new LOTV images I just had to have them. I had a lot of fun making the card as these images just make me smile and Mum loved it too !

I have coloured the images with distress inks, the backing paper is MME pretty Please - blossoms, which is my favourite paper at the moment, I used this for my last project too but I`ve only got one sheet left now !
The punch is the much loved Martha Stewart " Doily Lace " and the lace I got from the Ribbon Box at the NEC a last week. Flowers are a mixture of Prima and Carnmeal cottage and the leaf is the Ash Branch punch available from Sir Stampalot.
The little " MUM " plaque is made from oval and scallop oval nesties and the MUM was cut from Sizzix extended strip Wingo Zingo alphabet.

I added a little SU dazzling Diamonds glitter to the icing sugar and Glossy Accents to the bakeware, jam jar, cherry and egg to give a bit of dimension and texture to the images.
Well I`m off to cook dinner for Mum now, as it`s her day today I`ve been spoiling her, I even did all the ironing for her this morning ! Now THAT is love !!! LOL

Thanks for looking in, bye for now and happy crafting xx
