Whats On Your Work Wednesday 96 &...I won something!!!

Hello everyone! Heres the two cards that I made for my Mum & my future Mum in law for Mothers Day! If you are lucky enough to still be able to celebrate Mothers Day with yours I hope you had a great day & for all of you who are a Mum's I hope you were spoiled rotten! :) I decided to go with a couple of Vintage inspired images. They were both from a CD in the book "Instant Memories, Birthdays, Ready to use scrapbook pages" by Sandra Everson. Basically you just print them out to use or you can make up & print out entire scrapbook pages. I have used it quite a bit, theres some really nice pics on there! I used some DCWV papers & bits n bobs from my stash and ended up with two cards I quite liked!

For the insides of both cards I used some die cuts as well as some Paula Pascual stamps, and a Mothers day sentiment stamp from Create & Craft. The first die cut is a Nestabilities Lables 1 and the second card is one of the New Go Kreate XL Frilly Frames 3 I love the shape of this die. I am going to invest in more the Go Kreate dies as I am really impressed with the way they cut & emboss and I also think there a good price too! The flowers are rub ons from a La Blanch kit from QVC.

And finally I won some blog candy from Dawn Bibbys Blog!!! I never win anything, so I was very very surprised when I won this! Its a demo tag by Tim Holtz....and an ACT he made live on air last year when he came to QVC. Fancy that eh....I own something HE made! Cant quite believe it. I also received a signed card from Dawn herself & her latest CD "Stamps & Stickers" which is crammed full of how to's and craft tips & tricks, ideas and projects! It made my day! And I think was very generous of her as this an extra and was not part of the candy on offer! Lovely eh!
