Cards For The Mums

Happy Tuesday!! (Yes, I know it' says Monday, that's coz I saved it and then forgot)...but I didn't want to put these cards on the blog until after Mother's Day because now that hubby has managed to speed up her steam fueled computer, my Mum sometimes pops in here, just to see what I've been up to!
I've used Forever Friend bears and papers on both these cards. The 3D images were probably made for Valentine's Day, but I think they work for Mother's Day too! Both were also made from white pearlised card folded in half. The bottom one however has been edged with a pink Promaker pen.
As you can see, they're almost the same, but not quite. We could do a 'spot the difference'. (But we won't!) I've put one extra layer on the top card, but I don't think it notices that much. If you click on the picture (Crafty Chris!!) it will enlarge a little more so you can see it a little better.
In both cases I put the ribbon through my sticky label maker thingy, in the shape of an X, which has turned out to be very useful for sticking ribbons. Especially lacy ribbons with holes. I got it through Create and Craft (it has their logo on it) and only had to pay the postage!
In side the card, I've put a rhyme, not too silly...although, glue does rhyme very well with you!
The lower card, I did first, for John's Mum. I made a paper flower using Woodware punches and a little bit of sticklers glitter glue and also used handmade paper behind the bear.
I wasn't sure about the 'eye-lash' wool at first, but it grew on me, so it stayed.
Both sentiments I did on my laptop in 'Word.'
The font is a freebie, one I've linked before, it's called Apple Butter but in case you missed it last time, you can download it for free, HERE
The insert font is also a freebie, it's called England Hand DB and can be downloaded HERE
So there you are...two cards, nearly the same, but not quite!!
Hope I can find a few challenges for these cards. The Forever Friends Challenge blog suddenly comes to mind!...but no...then I found Teddy Stampers..but this is not a! Oh, well, I'll add them later if I can find any!
Nearly my tea-time (or dinner time, as it's a cooked dinner, not ham sandwiches) and just time to say hello and welcome (((big wave))) to new follower Marlene hope you'll all pop over to her fascinating blog and say 'hi!'
That's it for now..back tomorrow with What's On Your Desk Wednesday...It'll be on timer (so will probably turn up on Thursday) as I'm dog sitting all day!! Woff!! (or is that arff arff?)
