Week 8 - Feeling Sketchy 21-5-2012

The sketch at "feeling sketchy"

My Card - (late Mother's Day Gifts)
 It took about 5 mins to assemble the card - the flower took a little longer,
 as it was my first attempt at making one - lol.
 I am travelling back to my home town to see my parents, who live  in Tasmania
 and my sister, who is currently visiting from Cambodia- thus the very late Mother's Day
cards and gifts.I have made crochet flower pins, then attached them to a card.
The pins are easily removed.

The petals of the flowers are die cut from felt.

Feeling Sketchy Challenge May - Week 7 14/05/2012

Week 7 Sketch for "Feeling Sketchy" 

My Mother In-law's Mother's Day Card.
I found a great idea of Z-fold card on the Internet,
so I thought I would give it a go with this sketch.
Paper from Stampin Up.
Due to the fact that it moves when the front is opened,
 I had to lower the star (flower in my case) element.
Inks are Tim Hotlz distress inks -  "forest moss, walnut stain and stormy sky".
 Dies from My Favourite Things "Royal Rose and Royal Leaves" were  used for the flower.
Embossing folder "Drifting Endless" from Couture Creation.

Close up of the sentiment. Pearls from Spot Light.

The rose is blue and green and is also painted with "linen" shimmer spray.
Sorry my photo didn't pick this up very well.

Early Mother's Day Celebrations

Daniel and Penella's Card

Belinda and Tim's Card

My Eldest Grandaughter, Madyson (4 yrs) Card for Grandma.

We all had an early "Mother's Day / Happy Birthday Grandpa" Celebration this weekend.
I love it when we all get together as a family.
These are my lovely cards that I received from my family, along with a lovely bag, necklace , earrings and some cutting dies.I am feeling very spoilt.
Maddy (4yrs) and Lily (2yrs) both love to make cards, and grandma is very blessed by their creativity. I had a great time on Saturday with all three of my grandchildren creating finger print animals together around my kitchen table, while their Mum's were busy elsewhere.
We are so excited about the news that we are to be Grandparents again at the end of this year. God is so good to us.He has blessed us abundantly with our family.

Week 1 May - Feeling Sketchy Challenge and Stamp Spot Challenge

This is  May Challenge at the Stamp Spot.
Week 1 - May - "Feeling Sketchy Challenge"
My Mother's Day Card.I am entering my card into the 2 following challenges.
1) The monthly "Stamp Spot" - May Challenge Spots, bling, pink and flowers. (link is above)
2) The Week 1 - "Feeling Sketchy" sketch challenge (link is above)
I have taken a bit of liberty with the placement of the "roseframe" element, as the piece of paper I wanted to use for the top, had a mark on it, but it still seemed just right for this card.

A close up of my flower.My card is made out of papers from "Stamp n' Up" . The flower is cut from my new "My Favourite Things" Die - Namics, Royal Rose and Leaves dies , which my daughter, Penella, gave me for Mother's day.We had an early celebration because my daughter is a florist and always works a really long weekend on Mother's Day.
