The Sugar Bowl # 6 Mothers Day


I haven't been crafty or blogged for a whole week and I am having withdrawal symptoms! It was such a busy week with work and hospital visits. Anyhow I finally managed to get ahead and I have made this for my very special Mum (it also happens to fit the Sugar Bowl challenge so I will be in with a chance of winning those 'gorjuss' stamps).

I spotted the poem on Bevs blog and it fits so perfectly so I hope she doesn't mind me pinching it.

I printed the MUM on my 'puter using Cheri Liney font, stamped on the little flowers, water coloured them and then cut them out. I then used little gems on the flower centres.

The papers are Baby Powder - Tiny Tantrum and Oopsie Daisy by imaginisce.

The border is my new Fiskars punch and I paper pricked (a first for me) round the edges and also the oval nestie.

And finally (cos I don't think it shows in the picture) the little heart charm says ' Hand made with Love'.
