Happy Mothers Day!

Well, Im actually out at the moment with my fab Mum!
My Aunt & Uncle have come over to visit her (and for a family event next week) and we are all meeting up and going out for Mothers Day Dinner to a very Posh Nosh Pub in Freckenham (tiny village, middle of nowhere!). I have scheduled this post to be published after Ive given her gifts to her so if she is looking (as I know she does) HA HA HA... NO PEEKING!

I have fallen in love with this set... I resisited for a long time as its quite an investment and I couldnt see many of my customers forking out the price... Well, I decided that before I finish with SU! in the UK I would splash out a little and buy some goodies that I wanted. For ME! Why not? I get a 20% (YES... 20%) discount on everything I order... So I gave in! These flowers are amazing, and theres so many different elements in this set. Its the old 2-step-stamping where you have 1 stamp for the background image (here in Regal Rose and Mellow moss on the leaves) then the details are stamped over the top (in Rose Red and Always Artichoke). You WILL NEED the Stamp-a-ma-jig for this one as you definately need to line them up accurately... a little patience and you can get beautiful results... Whadda ya think?

Please note with the appropriate awe the 'Bling' flash from the glitter! D'ya know how hard it was to photograph that!!??)

I cut out the stamped images and arranged them in the corner. The main image was raised up with some Stampin Dimensionals (Foam pads) for some interest. Then I got out the Tombow glue and the Dazzling Diamonds glitter!

One of Mums gifts was a CD so (of course) I made a box and decorated to match!

Ive really enjoyed this set so far... hope to use it alot more in the future...

TTFN & have a great day being pampered!
