Hello all
Hope you all here in the UK had a lovely Mother's day yesterday, I did!
Our challenge over at BBTB2 this week has been  set by Lori and was to use any of the words/sentiments on the Mother's Day 2010 cartridge. I bought this cart after Mother's Day last year just for the cut I've used on my cards and have had this very simple idea for the cards ever since! As Mother's day in the UK was yesterday this was a great time for  this challenge to be set! Thanks Lori!
My cards are  6x6" and both use Hunky Dory foiled card, stripe and polka dots in pink and lilac.I covered the fronts with the striped card, The Happy Mother's Day cut is cut at 5 1/2" in silver mirri card for the shadow and polka dot for the base cut then pop dotted on to the card. The butterflies are cut in silver mirri using a Tonic punch from Hobbycraft and I've added some tiny gems. That's it very simple easy cards and my mum and mother in law loved them!
The projects my DT sisters have created over at BBTB2  are absolutely beautiful so make sure to pop over and take a peek and we'd love you to join us in the challenge this week!
Have a great week and thanks so much for looking!
