Mothers Day at Dream Valley

Hope my blogging buddies are having a lovely weekend and to the mums and Grandmothers out their - Happy Mother's Day.
 The challenge over at Dream Valley as you may have guessed by the title is Mother's Day. Do not worry if  the Mother's Day theme does not apply - as long as it is for a Female, then you are fine. We are being sponsored by Freckled Fawn - a wonderful place for all your crafting goodies who are generously offering a prize of $20. Please have a wander over as I am sure you have all made some wonderful Cards which myself and my teamies would love to see. 

I had my Mothers Day yesterday as I am at work all day today. We went out for a meal and I had a lovely time. I received some beautiful flowers and cards and would like to say a special thank you.
I mentioned in my last blog how tired I was with constantly running up stairs because our gorgeous little puppy got through every barricade I put up in an effort to eat the cats food which we keep in Russ's study. I gave in on Tuesday and bought a stair gate - money well spent I have to say. Abbie has had all her injections now so from Tuesday we can take her Walkies.  Don't know how we will fair though  because at the moment when you put a lead on her she sits down and refuses to budge!!!

I have two cards to show you today. Both cards are using sentiments from Pink Petticoat.  

The papers are from Nitwit Collections called Petal Fresh Too

The ribbon is  Silky Crush Ribbon from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.  The butterfly is a Memory Box die available from many on line stores. 

Now for my second card.

The papers and sentiments are from Pink Petticoat. The papers are the gorgeous new Marshmallow.

The ribbon is Silky crush ribbon from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.

The butterfly is Memory Box available from many on line stores.

Sharon, both designs are absolutely stunning! I love the drama your created with your bows, particularly the green one. It is always visually exciting when a bold color that appears nowhere else in the design is used a focal element. Beautifully done! Thanks for sharing these projects with us at 613 Avenue create. We love your interpretation of our sketch!

Helen said...

These two cards are just gorgeous! Any mother would be delighted to recieve them, I'm sure.
You sound like you're having a lovely time with Abbie. I'm sure once she's had her first walk (or sit down) she'll get the hang of it and will be waiting at the door for walkies!
