Happy (UK) Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day Barbara, I hope you'll have a wonderful day. David already spoke to his mum this morning, which technically was still Saturday in the UK, to thank us for the flowers that we had delivered to her. We chose to have them delivered on Saturday, just in case she was going to be out all day on Sunday. I believe she also received my card and gift on Friday (not bad for a 10k Miles journey). This is the card I made for her:

Supplies used: cardstock: Bazzill Basics, PPs and clear stamps: Two Scoops Basic Grey, circle journaling spot and ghost butterfly: Heidi Swapp, ink: VersaColor Turquoise, rub-ons: American Crafts, ribbon: Making Memories, flowers: Prima, bling: ?.

The other thing I made for her was a little album of 6"x6" made from cardboard, where I used the technique that Ali posted on her blog last week where she painted over KI Memories lace cardstock. So, that sneak I showed you wasn't the card, but it was this:

The journaling is about favourite things of the kids to mark the time I made the book.

Supplies used: cardboard scrap piece that comes with many orders to protect 12"x12" paper, PPs: Making Memories 'Love Story' and Love Elsie, lace cardstock: KI Memories, chipboard embellishments, felt hearts: Making Memories 'Love Story', glitter chipboard letters: Junkitz, rub-ons: Basic Grey and Creative Imaginations and American Crafts, heavy clear overlay: Hambly, journaling sheets: Making Memories 'Noteworthy', ribbons: ?, Buttons: Making Memories and for the scalloped hearts and squares I used my Silhouette. I bought the shapes online for $3.00/each.
