Happy Mother's Day!!

I hope you are all having a lovely Mother's Day.Family are so important to me as they are to you all.Anyway onwards and upwards.  Here's a card I made for my Mum-in-law, my first ever stepper card.
What did I use?
I used a template from my My craft studio encyclopedia cd-rom, main backing paper from there too,green card, another paper from curio paper pad,flower fairy chipboard topper and sentiment(freebie from Cardmaking and papercraft), green ribbon, green gems,verse, flower made from a die and buttons.  Quite a different card from me, I did a nice meal for her last night and she opened her card and liked it.  She's another fellow card maker, in fact it's down to her that I'm a crafter too.

I am entering this in the following challenges - Moving along with the times challenge the theme is 'more than 1 fold and Sarah Hurley challenge the theme is Mum's the word.
Off I go to craft now until I get a call from my daughter that she needs a lift home from work and a cuppa and cake on the way home.
Love Debs x

  3. Hi Debs

    What a great card .. .. I bet your Mum in Law loved it too.

    I have never made a stepper card. Perhaps I should have a try!!

    Gorgeous backing papers and I blew your picture up to read the sentiment. How lovely!! You are clearly a very thoughtful Daughter in Law.

    Hope you have had a lovely day.

    Love Jules xx
