For My Mum

First of all I'd love to thanks everyone for leaving me such lovely comments, they are all really appreciated.

I know it's ages since I put a card on here but the weather has been so good lately, on my days off work I've been trying to sort out our garden... I've been slow in trying to catch up on all the blogs I follow, almost managed it last week but some of you are so quick, I never seem to have the time to catch up.... and I haven't had much time to go on the forum, but I have managed to make a couple of cards recently, I just haven't got round to posting them, still trying to grab one back to take a photo of it as I didn't finish it until the last minute.

I had a great day Saturday at a play day organised by a forum friend, we made a lovely stationery box and a beaded flower, will definitely make some more of them, I'll post some pics another time. She provided everything we needed for the makes, we had a lovely lunch and great company, it must have taken ages to prepare everything so well and taken a lot of effort. So I would just like to say to her, thanks a million for a fantastic day.
But for now here's a card I made for My Mum.......


This was for Mums 82nd Birthday....before I started making cards I was never really bothered about the picture on the front of the card, I always concentrated on the verse inside, I still spend ages looking for a verse that will tell her how much I love and appreciate her...but don't think I can show it here..

Anyway..I've had this decoupage sheet for ages, I added some flowersoft to their flowers and hats, and printed the sentiment, the little angel pin on the sentiment was Mums, she was having a clear out, and asked me if I wanted it to use on a card.... now she's got it back... I wasn't going to add the little flower gems, but the border punch got stuck and I tore the corner of the punching so I put a little flower gem on it to cover it up, then I as I was sticking down the flowers I managed to mark the ribbon with the pinflair glue, I tried to remove it but it left a mark , so I had to add some more gems to hide the mark.... sometime things never go according to plan,



Would love to know what you think...

Wow this is stunning Chris. I love your little angels decoupage which are cut and placed to perfection and your beautiful`papers - fantastic layout and such gorgeous detail. I think your added details owing to the "happy accident" are simply perfect. Great card which I know your mum will treasure and I am sure a huge smile will come on her face when she sees she has that beautiful little angel back.
Hugs,
Nicola -x-

Hi Chris,
I had such a laugh at your blog today, are you usually so accident prone? i think i might have give up,but unless you told anyone you would never have known,you've done such a great job, I'm sure your mum will love it,the flower soft certainly adds dimension,lovely, and your mum gets her angel back, they must be destined to be together.
Hugs
Debs
