Order Up!



Happy Mothering Sunday! Once my mother had stopped laughing over the cow print shopping trolley we bought for her, I came home and got stuck into the last two cards for a ten card order I'd had. These two were tricky - they are for the lady's sister and mother and I always find it hard to make personal cards for people I've never met. Anyway, I took the plunge on the basis that this lady's sister is probably as mad as she is ...... hence Tilda with a skipping rope. The backing papers are all Making Memories: Fresh Anthology - Sydney, the flowers are Esprit and the pearls are from my stash.


Next was her mother's and the only instruction I had was it shouldn't be soppy (not the best mother/daughter relationship as I understand it) so no pressure then

The stamp is one of my favourites, "Gifts For You" by Penny Black. The matting card is Bazzill Bling and the backing sheets are from the Basic Grey "Mellow" collection. The flowers are Flora Doodles and the large brad is Papermania.

Awwww! Love the PB card here. I like the grids of different patterned papers for a background look, plus I'm keen on those colors. The Tilda is an okay card too but doesn't speak to me like the PB one does. Yes, cards speak to me. Sometimes they tell me to kill my enemies.... Just kidding!
