Happy Mummy's Day!!!

Hi my crafty friends I am having a fab Mummy's day here, I should say weekend really as mother-in-law had the kiddiewinkles all day Saturday into Sunday and my lovely hubby took me for breakfast then to my local craft shop then out for a day mooching round some shops then a dinner out.  Then today we got to have a lay in and then picked up kiddies along with mum-in-law and he treated us to lunch out so I have been thoroughly spoiled and I loved every minute.

Well I've popped on to show you the card/box which I made for my mum.  I have wanted to do this for a while and there is a template you can buy but I thought I would have a go as it didn't seem that difficult.  There are a lot of photos so I hope you don't get fed up looking plus I apologise for the terrible quality it was a really dull day when I took them and I did it in a hurry.

Ok that's it I apologise now for where the photos are but it won't let me blinking move them now or centre them all so in the interest of public safety (as I can see myself throwing my laptop out the window) I'm not going to even try anymore.

The images are coloured with copics/prisma pencils.  The gorgeous papers are from a Tilda pad and they are all pretty pinks and pale greens just yummy.  I have had the pad for a while now just not been able to bring myself to cut into.  All the flowers are from WOC and the ribbons from my local haberdashery.  You can't see because the photos are ploppy but I have added lots of stickles everywhere.  In the little boxes I have put a few treats for my mum from Thorntons.

Anyway, I would like to enter a few challenges:-

Well if you're still with me after that marathon post thank you.  I also say I'm going to make it short and sweet but never seem to manage it.  Well if its your mummy's day today I hope you were thoroughly spoiled and looked after. 

Take care and happy crafting.
