March Karen Burniston Design team challenge...

Hi and welcome to this months design team challenge post. This months challenge was to Make 'em Laugh! with a Funny card for any theme. It was our chance to use all those funny stamps we have, or make up our own greeting.

I chose to make my card using the rectangle pull card and whiskers the cat in this fun 'crazy cat lady starter kit' ensemble.
 


 I hand wrote the phrase with my calligraphy pen on some newspaper print paper.




My cats have their own cute little paper mouse to chase.



The starter kit wouldn't be complete without a tasty little fish snack.

Mini Daffodil box......

Hello and happy mothering Sunday everyone. I hope you mums have been thoroughly spoilt again this year.

I recently bought Susan Tierney-Cockburns mini daffodil die set from Elizabeth craft designs and thought I'd have a little play with it.
So then I thought how can a send a few to my mum without them getting lost or crushed by the heavy handed woman in the post office. After much rummaging through my craft cupboard I remember my hubby had bought me a paper box maker for christmas.

To accessories my mini box I used serveral dies that come with different sets by Karen Burnstions. the mini love hearts come with her Katie label accordion set. the Arrow and stamp die are part of the tags die set
 The purple swirl you can see in the picture below also comes as a die with the tags set.....
.......and the butterfly is part of the butterfly pivot set. I used a extra sticky (but quite stringy) clear liquid glue to stick all the pieces in place.



I hope you love it as much as I do....


HAPPY MOTHERING SUNDAY MUM!
