Two cards to share...

Hello folks!  Today I have two cards to share.  I made this Mother's day card for a friend to give to her Mum as a little thank you to her for something kind she did, hence the thank you card alongside it! Truth be told she forgot English Mother's day in England and is hoping to sneak in in time for the Aussie one instead!

For the Mother's day card I used the sketch from Our Creative Corner.  The colours (aqua, navy, brown, kraft and cream)  I used were from a card I saw along the There She Goes blog hop this week and I loved them but can't remember which lovely blog they were from (Sorry!). 

The Thank you card, well, I just made.  But then when I looked at it again I realised I must have still had the Everything but the kitchen sink sketch still stuck in my head as it looks just like that!

I used stamps from Courtney Baker's Practicing Creativity range.  I was soooo excited when these arrived this week.  I used the 'For the love of dots' one to create the blue spot background on the kraft paper.  And the 'Look Up' one for the bunting banner.  The thank you stamp is an old Stampin Up one.  I am loving that ricrac, I picked up three different coloured rolls from the $2 shop. There were EIGHT metres on each roll! Bargain!

Well thanks for stopping by.  Have a fabulous day!
