Mums are like buttons

 Good evening

Did you all have a lovely and loving mothers day ? I hope so 

I did, I had an utterly lazy day, watched the new Monsters Inc film whilst crafting, Neil waited on me hand and foot, I got some lovely treats with my money and gift vouchers, the only thing missing was my lovely daughter but she will be home soon and we will make up for her absence then

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.  ~Tenneva Jordan

This quote totally sums my mum up, utterly selfless and always thinking of others
Love you mum xxx

This is the card I made for my mum

Papers are by Tim Holtz and Melissa Frances
Die is Nellie Snellen
Sentiment is computer generated

And here is a similar version which I created for Neil's mum

I also made this little treasure trove for my mum, thankyou so much to Jan for teaching this gorgeous box at the class on saturday, for once I actually managed to finish my project.

We used adhesive foil tape for the metallic elements with alcohol ink
I added a Prima butterfly and a Prima metal flower to add a feminine finishing touch

And the treasure inside ?

Maltesers of course - mums favourite!

Love and loot



  1. Glad you had a lovely day. Fab cards, gorgeous papers, and I love your treasure chest - a beautiful feminine look. So happy you enjoyed the class. xx

  2. Awww! Lovely card and what better treasure than malteasers.
