Happy Birthday Mum!

Good Morning to you all! And especially to my lovely mum who is 21 again today!!!! She's obviously a miracle worker as I'm 46 lol!!!! Anyway - the makes I'm going to show you today are both for my mum - one is the card I made for my dad to give to her - the second is a canvas I made for her based pretty much on the one I did with Hels in a workshop back in February. So first the card.


My mums fave colour is orange and fave flower is the poppy - hence the chocolate baroque image and the colour. The image has been coloured with promarkers and the background created using distress inks and more stamps from chocolate baroque and inkylicious. I bought the ribbon from thatcraftplace.


I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Allsortsallsortschallenge: How does your garden grow
OCCourcreativecorner: Flaming June
Pan pastelpanpasteluk: Flora and fauna.

Next is the canvas - see the original here with details on how to make it.


I hope you like the canvas mum - I wanted to do an orange flower but things didn't quite work out like that - thanks to Mo and Anne for letting me have a die cut to make the flower in the first place! 

I'd like to enter my canvas into anythingbutacardABAC - summer lovin'.

If I haven't visited in the last day I send my apologies - blogger is bing very naughty and only putting up one post on my dashboard - I don't know why - and when i click view more nothing happens. Not sure what has gone wrong but hopefully it will sort itself out!!!

Big hugs to you and thanks for visiting today!

Hugs

Rachel xx

  21. I think we are all under the blogger bad boy spell at the moment Rachel and it's h so frustrating, I did read on their help forum about the suggestion from the lady above but for many myself included that doesn't work either.

    Anhyow, I am totally with your Mum on Poppies and I am sure she loved this gorgeous card.

    Thanks for sharing it with us at Allsorts.
