Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

My mum's cards

Last Friday was my mum's birthday.  We spent the morning at Dobbies, the local garden centre, where we had a lush breakfast, mooched about and bought some Christmas presents including some for Baxter!!

Anyway on WOYWW people saw a glimpse of my mum's card so I thought I'd come back and share them properly with you. There are three - one from me, Keagan and my dad. My dad jokes he has an existing order that runs from year to year to cover every occasion where he needs a card for mum. 

Firstly my card - 

I used card and toppers from Hunkydory. I also used my clay molds from Stampin'Up to make the white flower embellishment.

Next is the card from Keagan - 

I used Party Paws bundle from Crafter's Companion to make this large decoupage stand-alone shaped card. I added chipboard letters 'Nan'. 

I love the layers and the finish to this decoupage.

Now for the card from my dad - 
I created this card from scratch. I used Coredinations card and vanilla card from American Crafts. I used my A4 Embossilicious folder from Crafter's Companion to create the fuchsia background. I added the black web before layering the vanilla card that had been embossed with the Anna Griffin Rose embossing folder. Then I punched out the butterflies with a punch I've had for years. White lettering and pearls and gems finished it off.

So there you go, mum's cards for another year done!
And more importantly she loved them.
Take care Zo xx
