Daisy May/Friday Sketcher

Firstly I'd like to thankyou for all the lovely comments I got regarding my new DT post. Its wonderful comments like that make you realise what a fun hobby cardmaking can be and what a lovely bunch you all are! I like to wish you all a very "Happy Mothers Day" and hope your being bombarded with pressies and loads of pampering. I got some cards and choccies this morning and so far just had a lazy day. Wouldn't go as far as saying I'd been pampered though. Jessica and Zoe made me a cake earlier, very sweet of them but I had to tidy the kitchen after. At least the thought was there! Anyway, another Mothers Day Card, just hope my mum isn't looking on on my blog today as I dont think she'll receive it tomorrow. It all started with the backing paper which I had used previously to cut some shapes out. Seemed a shame to waste it as I am so guilty of putting these in the bin. I've just got a new MS embossing punch which I tested out down the side of the page. What a lovely look, gave it about 3 punches just to be sure I got a good impression. Another Digi Download, this time Daisy May, coloured with Copics and matted onto BG paper which again punched with the Daisy MS punch. Have added a button to the crocheted flower which is this weeks challenge over at Cute Daisy May and used my reliable L -Em punch and some Bazzill for the leaves and added rasberry Liquid Pearls on the hearts and on the embossed border. The sentiment I made up and printed out onto Satmat. I followed the sketch from this weeks Friday Sketcher, been using this challenge alot over the last few weeks. I do hope you are having a wonderful day, the sun has been shining.

Was also saddened to hear of Jade Goody's Death. I hope by this tragedy that so many more lifes can be saved.

Hi Claire

Jules again - thanks for your comments and for the link to Poppicrafts.

What a find. I haven't come across them before but am suddenly "in love" and can see more money disappearing before my very eyes. (That's your fault - not that I need much encouraging!!)

I have posted the link to my Sis who makes handbags as I am sure she will be interested too.

Thanks again. Love Jules xx
