Mum's Birthday

Afternoon ladies (and gents!)

I took myself off shopping yesterday for new stash as I was very generously given lots of vouchers for my favourite craft shops when I left my job a couple of weeks ago. Promarkers and Nesties very willingly threw themselves into my basket along with a new flower punch and various other essentials ;) But after sitting in traffic for an hour and spending over 15 mins at the till when my vouchers caused problems I couldn't get off the sofa when I got home and didn't even put the stash away!

But it's my mum's birthday tomorrow, so I had to shift my bum and make another card! and here it is:

I've used the beautiful "Swinging Chloe" stamp from Pink Gem and coloured her with Promarkers. The papers and ribbon are from papermania. I used my new embossed flower punch from x-cut and teamed them with roses from wild orchid coated in glamour dust.

I cut Chole out with my new nesties and embossed the mat with a cuttlebug folder. The butterflies and sentiment are Anita's.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge - Sketch
Cute Card Thursday - Signs of Spring
Passion for Promarkers - Sugar Rush
Simon Says Stamp - No Cook Recipe

Thats it from me for today, I'm off to link up :)

Take Care

Its time for another new challenge over at Stampin for the Weekend and this time we're embracing the coming of Springtime!!

We are sponsored this challenge by the wonderful Simon Says Stamp  who are very kindly offering the winner a $20 voucher to spend in store!

So here is my DT card:

I've used the 'Spring Chloe' stamp from Pink Gem Designs and I've coloured her with Promarkers. The papers are from the Forever Friends Spring Time collection (how appropriate!) and the ribbon is papermania. The Flowers are from Wild Orchid and I've coated them with Glamour dust. The leaf pins finish the design, which were from The Ribbon Girl.
