Hello ...Me again

Thought I'd show the cards I made for my wonderful Mum and Mum in law for Mothers Day. Both are easel cards, the decoupage images I used were from Joanna Sheen Nostalgia by Fay Whittaker.
I really love these, they are so easy to cut out and look far better in real life. 
The little girls were for Mum as she has 3 girls, and the boys for MIL as she has 2 boys, quite apt I thought.

A touch of crystal glitter on the dresses, red glitter on the bows, and red ultra fine flowersoft mixed with glitter around their hats. On the base I used some prima flowers distressed with Tim Holts ink. I know it looks cockeyed but it was just a very odd angle I took the photo, lol..

The base image is an insert from a disk by Donna at Bearly Mine designs, printed and decoupage, there are some lovely inserts on the cd, and wonderful service from Donna. By the way check out Donna's candy on her blog.

The story goes,I ordered the disk, about week later I still hadn't received it, so I got in touch with Donna who told me she'd posted it the day I ordered it, so it must have got lost in the post, without question she said she would send out another one to me..which I received within 2 days, guess what a few days later the original one she sent arrived,(it took almost 2 weeks to get here) I emailed her to let her know I'd received it, when I got home that night I had an email from her saying not to send it back and to keep it..but I'd already sent it back to her. I think I'll be buying more of her papers and inserts soon. Check them out here. As far as the post office is concerned well........... your guess is as good as mine as to where it was for 2 weeks..wasn't at the local sorting office as I phoned them to check.

 Again on this one I used one of Donna's inserts, decoupaged it and used some small roses. The smaller image is the whole of the insert used on the card.

Oh guess what.... Whoopee.. I won the Ribbon Girls Candy,
thank you, gorgeous pink ribbons, some button & stamps all lovely, lucky me..   

Would love to know what you think...
