Mum's birthday

My darling mothers birthday is on next week, so I thought that I better get moving with a card for her. Mum wanted a voucher for her birthday so I wanted to put it in something special.

To start with I will need to thank alot of people for this post. I cased this really groovy bag at Mel's blog and used urban oasis paper. Finished off with a die cut flower, felt flower and a button. I must say that I really wanted to use one of my new filagree buttons, but they have gone missing. I am hoping that they turn up soon.

For the flower pot card, I got the idea at a team meeting from the very talented Debbie. Then Leonie made a bigger one, which is what I did last night. Thanks ladies. I didn't have any instructions of how to make the bigger one, so I thought that I was very clever making my own pattern. Yeah me.

And last but not least at Yvonne's team meeting the other day I was looking at some of her swaps from Convention. And some clever person had made a shop voucher holder. I don't know who did, but thank you. I thought it was a great idea and made one for my mum to hold her voucher. I hope she likes it. If you would like measurements for this let me know and I will email them to you.

This is the inside of the voucher holder.

As you can see I have stuck with the new in colours. I must say they are growing on me. I think that this has been my longest post ever. Now time for more stampin. Have a good day and thanks for looking.
