Mother Love

Hello, and welcome!

It's been a while since I posted on a Saturday, but I've got a few creations that haven't been shown my netbook screen, yet, so thought I'd pop one on, today.

Before I show you the card, I'd just like to point you in the direction of a lovely new blog that's recently started up.....okay, it's not about papercrafts, but it is about another beautiful sort of craft....quilting and sewn bitties.....and is owned by my very own Daughter #3, Leigh-Anne......proud Mummy, walking, here....lol......

Leigh-Anne already has a very successful Facebook page at Sew Delightful, but she's now ventured into the world of Blogland and she'd really love to see you at her new place!
She's got a really clear and simple tutorial for making her popular Dolly Quilt......just the right size for your favourite little girl's dolly bed......you can find Leigh-Anne's place at


and tell her I sent you!

Now, back to our regular programme...hahaaa.......

My Mam recently celebrated her 83rd birthday......she always likes one of my cards, but this year asked for 2....gave her one last week (on her birthday), but didn't get around to taking a photo......she now says she wants to put out another one of mine, because nobody else ever sends her a handmade one,  and she prefers them.......a Lady of Taste, says I!

Here's #2.........

There are two layers of Nitwit's papers, mounted onto dark red card, with a little inking around the edges......

Both the sweet sentiments are from Dawn Bibby and I added a strip of red spotty ribbon, and the lovely BIG pink button, which has some white gossamer ribbon threaded through.......

Quite plain and simple and quick to make....hope she likes it!

hugs,
Anne-Marie x
