Totally Ladybug Tuesday! - WOW!

Morning all, time for another Totally Ladybug Tuesday! 

This week the lovely Susan chose WOW cards, White on White. 

I love how these look but hate making them and hate taking photos of them even more! 
We also all used images from Floral delight. 

I used Retro Jug for my card. I also had issues following instructions just like Michele ... 
so mine is WOW with blue inked edges .... 




I added clear sparkly gems to the centres of the flowers, and glitter to the stripes on the vase. 

Hop on over to the challenge blog to see just how naughty Michele was (ahem I mean to see the other ladybugs gorgeous creations!)

Forever Friends ...

Good morning 

Sorry if I am boring you with my mothers day cards, I did say I had made 24!!! This one came from a kit I bought from MMCS, unfortunately the postman also liked the A4 paper kit so I had to wait a little longer to buy a replacement!! The rest of the elements were a complete bargain though! I really enjoyed the decoupage for these and the papers are so pretty! 



Everything is from the kit, apart from the flowers which you can also buy from MMCS! First time I have used them! eek! 

Thats all for today!

Birdhouses & Blooms

Morning all, back to share yet another mothers day card this one is totally not my style at all!! 

FLOWERS everywhere!! 

I bought this artpad from LOTV knowing I wanted to use it for mothers day cards as they are perfect, but I knew I would struggle. There are lots more cards from this pad to come!! 



Keeping it clean I didnt use any papers, I just mounted some white cardstock onto some yellow, added lots of pearls and flowers and a sentiment. I LOVE how it turned out! 

Thats all for today, back tomorrow with my halfway post from LCI!

Love you mum!

I don't normally blog at the weekend but I am filling in for Anice. I also posted on the Get funky blog here.

Today I want to share a card I made using the new mothers day downloads available from Funky Hand! There are 3 to choose from, one for MAM, one for MOM and one for MUM! 


I stupidly printed out the wrong one as I wanted to use MOM but wasnt paying attention so we ended up with MUM! 



I kept it nice and simple so you could see everything, I mounted the papers on a deep green cardstock to make them pop, I wasn't sure if it would work but I think I pulled it off! I added 3 small flowers and some pearls to finish it off nicely! 
The kits are great because they contain everything you need to make a nice card, or more! you can just add embellishment if you want to! 

Thats all for today, back on Monday! 

Have a lovely weekend!
