Happy Mother's Day!

Sunday, 3 April 2011

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mummies out there! I’m a little late in saying it here, but it’s been a busy day. My brother, sisters and I got a lovely pamper day for my mum and my sister got one as well, I came up with the idea to do that so I could go too - genius or what?!!

I had a busy weekend tidying my craft room and I didn’t realise just how overdue it was for a good tidy up until I came across my Christmas papers! Lol! To be fair, I purposely didn’t put them away cos I thought I’d make some Christmas cards, but I just don’t have the heart for it at the moment so they're all away now!

Anyway, this is the card I made for my mum...

I followed a fab tutorial on Heather’s blog on how to make shadow box cards.

I filled my box with hand-made wound-up roses, which I added a Swarovski crystal bead and some glitter. The glitter went on a little gloopy, but I think I quite like it - it looks a little like rain!

You can see the depth of the box here

The paper is Bo Bunny from the Vickie B paper pad. The sentiment is from a Kraftin’ Kimmie set and I added some Wild Orchid Crafts pearls to the corners.

I used the same papers on the inside

And finished it off in a matching box (I’ve been practicing tying bows, but I’m still not very good at it! And I have trimmed the ends of the bow since I took the photo.)

WOW, WOW, WOW, totally stunning gift, expertly made, the flowers are divine. Thanks for the link to the tut too :). The Lilliput lane house your Ma has is based on the house in Ambleside, there are quite a few houses in the Lake District that have been created by Lilliput Lane. They used to have a factory near workington (20 min drive from me) lol!
...Anyway ...Beautiful work Sheena as always!
