Good Morning, it’s Friday, and time to share with you my post for Creative Expressions.
Last Sunday was Mother’s Day in the UK (and Ireland), and this year I was able to spend it with my Mum and hand to her,her card in person. I have a lot to thank both my Mum & Dad for this year, and we had a fabulous weekend. Saturday we were able to spend out walking in the beautiful surroundings of Killarney National Park (well wrapped up against the cold) and picnic-ing on hot dogs and coffee, warmed up on a camping stove from the back of the car.
Sunday we relaxed and treated ourselves to a Sunday roast out at our favourite eatery just down the road from us.

Mum’s favourite colour (certainly at the moment) is lemon, and being a crafter herself, she has been excited to get herself a set of Sue Wilsons Double Pierced Squares Noble Dies, so I based this card around those two things.
Using Phill Martins Sentimentally Yours Paper Insert pad (Graceful Butterflies & Dragonflies) and the Double Pierced Square Dies, I created three nesting layers, accentuating each with a contrasting pierced border. Using just one 8×8 in sheet, means the pattern can remain intact across all layers (I must admit however I forgot to align the outer layer!).
Using the smallest of the Pierced Square Dies, I created the sentiment panel by stamping the Heart Background again, and of the Petite lavish Sentiments (an A5 Clear Stamp Set).
