Mums Birthday Card & Mothers Day Surprise...

Due to major problems with Blogger, I have spent the last 3 days trying to post this, but wait till you see the last bit of my post as its so worth the wait!

I've actually done my first craft project in weeks and it was for mums birthday. 

It's an A5 sized card blank using the Another Great Year stamp set (a great sized sentiment!) which was stamped onto very vanilla card and Crumb Cake DSP using Early Espresso ink. 

The banners from the DSP were cut out and adhered directly on top of the banners of the very vanilla card. Then I used part of a multi purpose sheet over the top of both layers (leaving the top layer of protective paper on the image) before running it through the Big Shot with the large oval scalloped die. 

The protective paper was pealed off and Dazzling Diamonds sprinkled on (my mum has a slight tenancy towards glitter..)

I added a mat of DSP to the front of the card blank, the dazzling diamond panel and flowers we're die cut, assembled and adhered. 

The leaves were punched out of Old Olive card stock with the Bird Builder punch and glued in place with Tombow. 

Now, it is Mothers Day today, so I hope all you mums out there have had a super day.  We don't have any children (just a cat, a dog 5 chickens & some fish...) however I had the most unbelievable Mothers Day present this afternoon - some of Evie's eggs have hatched... Just take a look at these little cuties!

Hope you have all had a super weekend - I certainly have!!!
