Happy cards at Moving along with the times!


Good Morning all
(Well it's morning where I am!)  I'm on my hollies in Florida and this is the one and only card I managed to make before we came away.   With all the good intentions in the world it just didn't happen as things just got so busy with so much to do before I left that my crafting had to take a back seat - after much stressing about it in the end I had to let it go because after all crafting's fun and life is life and sometimes fun just has to wait!!

Anyway.... its my turn to host this week at MAWTT  and I chose the theme 

Make a card with the word "Happy" on it

As you can see I've got a "Happy Mothers Day" card to share - I decided it fit the challenge perfectly and so I kept it especially for this challenge - even though Mothers Day is long gone (in the UK - maybe I'll catch some US challenges because its in May here!!)

I used a lovely LOTV stamp called foxgloves available here - one that I haven't had for very long but it is one of my favourites - I just love the way the flowers fall on this card and its so lovely to colour.  I made it for my own mother - very clean and simple and I really liked how it turned out
This is what I did ....

Stamp - Foxgloves by LOTV
Paper - LOTV Antibellum pad
Sentiment - Stamping all day
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons
Card and pearls from my stash

I'll be trying to fit in some visiting to you all soon - so get the kettle on

Challenges I'm entering with this card

Addicted to stamps - happy
Add a little dazzle - mothers day of anything goes
Crafting with dragon flies - mothers day / for a special lady
Creative moments - girly
Whimsy Inspiration - anything goes
