«Moederkesdag».... A Card for my Mum-in-Law

After seeing so many beautiful tri-fold cards I just had to try one!

I also got to test the satin-ribbon flower technique I had just learned at my friend Stephanie's workshop, who just happens to be my friendly neighborhood Stampin`Up rep :) You can visit her blog here.

Here is what it looks like closed (seems a little bland but that all changes once it's opened!):

And a side-view:

Absolutely loved coloring this little Tike! He's from Penny Black: «Just for You» cling stamp. Afterall, this is my Man's mother's card, so it had to represent him somehow ;)

The brown paper I embossed with Versamark ink and pen, using clear embossing powder from Stampin' Up and the rest mainly came from my scraps folder.

Challenges entered:
Moving Along With the Times #98: 2 B`s (Boy, blue, bling, blooms...)

Thanks a million for visiting! and a million more for your comments :)

My Little Angel

Unfortunately, I can't share my Mother's Day creations just yet... Wouldn't want to ruin the surprise :) So, instead, here is a page with my beautiful little angel Andrea. The picture was taken 3 years ago when she still let me tie her hair up into knots...

Don't you just love the Bella Blvd «Estate Sale» paper collection? I just had to HAVE it!!!

I was totally inspired by The Sweet Stop's SSS107 sketch:

But I couldn't stop there... I also entered the following challenges:
(in no particular order...)
