Happy Mother's Day

I hope all Mum's out there had a happy Mother's Day.  I want to share with you not only the two cards I made for our Mums for Mother's Day, but they're also a sneak peak of some new products coming in the new catalogue released on 1st June. 

Firstly the card for hubby's Mum - This is one of the new in-colours called Emerald Envy.  It's showing a little more turquoise in this photo than it actually is but its a gorgeous new colour. 

The embossing is one of a pair of new mini folders - the other which I've used on my Mum's card further down.

 I stamped the bouquet of flowers again on the inside and on the envelope.

Cardstock: Emerald Envy, Whisper White
Stamps: Sitting Here, Mixed Borders
Ink: Emerald Envy, Tip Top Taupe, Delighful Dijon, So Saffron, Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo, Cucumber Crush
Other: Floral Affection Embossing Folders

Now here is the card I made for my Mum.  Again this is a brand new colour called Flirty Flamingo and I'm really liking it.   

The photo hasn't come out very well unfortunately.  Whilst this photo is too dark, and doesn't represent the colour well, it does show you the embossing a whole lot better.
This is the other embossing folder in the pair called Floral Affection.  They are part of a new suite of products called the Affectionately Yours Suite and will be available on the 1st June.
Cardstock: Flirty Flamingo, Whisper White
Stamps: Timeless Textures
Ink: Flirty Flamingo
Other: Floral Affection Embossing Folders, Little Letters Thinlits dies, Basic Pearls
Of course my sweet daughter's each made me a card for Mother's Day (at Nana's house).  They were pretty adamant about how they wanted their cards to look I'm told.  It only makes them all the more special.  Here they are:
I love the way she has carried the ladybirds are creeping across the front from the inside of the card.
Lastly I'd like to congratulate Meaghan Cooley for winning my Mother's Day competition.  She wins a set of five handmade cards for herself and five for her Mum Jill.
