...to all you mums and significant women in children's lives!
It is such a privledge to be involved in the life of a child, and such a responsibility too! Praise God that we can have His help to do it.
I got an "adapted" card thrust on my pillow this morning. Daddy apparantly couldn't find the blank card?! So he raided the stash of bought cards and got Luke to stick on some punched out shapes, Luke had signed the inside... I don't really think he understands what Mother's day is about! Tom had bought me a Breakfast at Tiffany's DVD, so looking forward to watching that sometime.
I've been thinking about creating and selling more Christian themed cards and others to sell through my online shop. To be honest it doesn't do loads of business as I haven't the time to promote and keep it stocked with the latest products. I'd also like to be actively involved in raising money for a charity I've got to know through my inlaws. It's called Morning Star, and it's basically a daycentre for children infected with HIV. After doing a little bit for Comic Relief, I'd prefer to know my money was going directly to a cause that I could be in touch with.
Thank you everyone that bid on the Red Nose Day inspired kit... raised £12!
Been having a bit more of a play with my new scalloped scissors, I punched flowers shapes out down the side too, and jsut used up some scraps on the table! THe only thisng I had to move for was to get the butterfly punch that wasn't there at the time... It was like doing another dare!!! ;)
Ingredients: Papers from Anna Griffin, TLC and Colour Bok, fiskars large scalloped scissors, EK success flower punch, butterfly punch, Anna Griffin clear stamp, Rubber Stamp Tapestry leaf stamp and some jewels.
Thought I could post my Mother's day creations now as the recipient would have seen them! When my mum came to stay last week she noticed that my local post-office stocked the notebooks she liked that were perfect for fitting into her Bible. She asked me to buy some and to bring them next time I was in London. Anyway, thought it would be nice to alter them slightly and this is the result... I like some better than others...
And here is her card... very randomly based on a sketch from a blog... unfortunately I can't seem to remember where I got it from... if anyone recognises it please let me know, I'd love to link it.
Ingredients: DCWV paper, Clever cuts corner, edging and leaf stamps, can't remember the make sentiment stamp, ribbon, punchies and flower from Blooms to Go
