As usual, I do everything by the skin of my teeth....(where does that saying come from? I don't know about you but my teeth don't have skin)!!! Answers on a postcard please......
I quickly made a couple of mother's day cards and used the wonderful BANANA FROG STAMPS and the compulsory scalloped punches (I can't stop using them)!!!
Stamp out your word, I used the DearJoe IV Upper Case, then place it in your punch keeping the punch upsidedown, this way you can center it exactly.
Layer up your card front with plain and patterned cardstock, place ribbon in the center.
I also added the sentiment Happy Day using Simple Greetings, these have got to be my all time favourite as they are so versatile.
To finish off, when ink is dry go over the word with a quickie glue pen and glamour dust, adding little glamour dots to the scallops.
A really quick card to make, if you don't want a word in the centre a lovely BIG flower with a bit of bling in the middle would also look great.

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
