After a full morning of soccer and football, I got some crafting time today while everyone chilled out to a movie (they were exhausted!!). Love those kinds of afternoons. So I took the time to create a birthday card for my Mum to give to my brother tomorrow (I used one I created a while ago, such a cheat!). The only stipulation was that it had to say "Son", so here it is:
I had fun with Tim Holtz stamps, embossing and inking, a 7 Gypsies tag and some more Tim with the ticket & pin. I added the clip which is from Stampin' Up, however it was a little too 'silver and shiney', so I just grabbed out my alcohol inks and coloured it Espresso.........so easy.
So while my Mum and the kids were watching Monster House, my Mum had a little nap so I got busy on making a present for when she woke up. Here it is:
I should have probably kept it for Mothers Day but who can wait to give pressies when they are completed??? NOT ME! So when she woke up I presented her with a cuppa and a pressie, lol. Needless to say, she was happy.
This flower was made from paper towels that I used to sop up a whole bunch of Glimmermist. I love what that stuff does to paper towel, give it a try sometime won't you?
Thanks for stopping by and I will be back to share a whole bunch more soon.
