For My Mum...

Had a little play today with a couple of my NEC goodies - how amazing would it be if money were no issue...I'd have been able to buy everything I wanted and had it delivered home in a taxi so I didn't have to carry it!
As it was I'd spent out after 2 hours (we weren't going to be there as long as I'd hoped, so I'd 'ran' around worrying I'd run out of time - then I had to sit outside for 1 1/2 hours cos I'd only have got depressed seeing more things I wanted!
Next time I'm going for the weekend and at least a 3 lap 'pootle'!

So on to my card.....

I used my new MS Punch-around-the-page, so easy to get a great look! and TH Adage Tickets on this card.
As well as a LOTV Die-Cut image, WOC Flowers, Ribbon from my stash, liquid Pearls and Stickles.

I use my sewing machine to sew around the Gemstones card backing piece and Cuttlebug die-cut letters for 'mum'.
