Hot Mama to be!

Hello, Happy Mother's Day to all the mummies out there. Yesterday my hubby gave me a nice bunch of flowers and my kids are going to cook me a pancake this morning he he I'm going to looove that  :)  

Thought I would post this card now, before I go to sleep, as not sure if I would be able to do it during the day and definitely didn't want to miss another day without making a post! Was again so busy on Saturday, not making cards though this time, but doing housework...... We had some awful windy weather this week, raining reddish sand, so everywhere was a real big mess... just had to do a big clean up!

Anyways, thought this card would be just perfect for today. It was one of the cards I was busy making this week. The stamp is one of the newest from Some Odd Girl and I just had to get it... so cute.


I coloured her with my promarkers, paper pieced her top, and I did the sentiment on the computer myself. To do the embossing I used my cuttlebug folder and not to leave part of the card without embossing, since the folder isn't square, I rerun the card from the other side and then hid the part where the swirls do not match, with the ribbon! Hope you like it.

Hi Dora

Don't apologise .. .. I haven't been around either.

Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. The roses weren't done with a die .. . the are simply a circle cut with scissors into a spiral and curled around.

Loving the card you have posted .. .. such a cute image. I can see why you "just had to get it" LOL!!

Hope you have a good week and that your pancake was nice.

Love Jules xx
