Secret Crafter ~ Mother's Day

A very good morning its nice looking out this morning dry but probably chilly. Today's card is a commissioned card I was asked to make. It fits in perfect with this weeks theme over on Secret Crafter Challenge. Smashing cards from the girls this week well worth popping over for a look and join in.

 I haven't been using my Cricut as much as I should so I have challenge myself to use it more. I have cut the letters to spell Mum from Storybook cartridge I think this must be my favourite cartridge not that i have many mind you but this is full of fabulous accents. Papermania papers yes still on the using up stash mood and I'm doing very well too. The flowers are made using Marianne creatables flower dies and are fabulous value for money. The leaves are a woodware punch. The oval has been embossed using my cuttlebug flower fantasy embossing folder and finished off with my favourite butterflies.

Today is clean up and footer day for me as Jack is with his daddy so I don't get him until tomorrow so i like to get as much done on a Monday as I can. Hope you have a smashing day whatever you are doing.


Thanks for stopping by!
