A Present for Mum


Had a fabulous day at the NEC yesterday caught up with the lovely Burt, Ali, Louise, Marianne, Cathy, Lisa, Lynsey, Kath (minus) Buddy,   Lisa, Liala and Richard from LOTV, Jill from the Hobby House, all the Girls and of course Ross from Crafters Companion, spent more time gabbing than Spending, but did get all the new Lili of the Valley Stamps, cannot wait to stamp them up, more embellies, and a few more dies, and a couple of Tonic edge punches.

Its Mums birthday on the 28th of this month, it is so hard to think of what to buy for someone who is 89 &  has everything she needs, so as well as the usual clothes and underwear, I thought she might like a plant she could keep on the table beside her.  This week on Just Magnolia & hAnglar and stAnglar Challenge,  our Teamie Anne choose the theme “More than one Fold” , and I decided to make a container for Mums Plant.  This is not my idea I saw one of these containers made by Paula from Which Craft using their Tag and Squares pack, I am so pleased how it worked out.






The Mauves Gingham and Spot papers are by Craft Creations, I picked them up at Dies to Die for last time I was there. I have used a Doo Hickey Swirl Die cut from Mauve Co-Ordinations card , and the Polka Dot Rose is made with SpellBinder Die.





All the Tildas have been coloured with Copics numbers below.




Here is the other side of the container, as you can see I have used large flat back pearls on the two side panels these are from The Hobby House.




Copics Used:

Flesh: E13, E11, E00, E000, R35, R32

Hair: E41, E40

Mauves: Vooo, V01, V12, V15, V17

Shoes: E70, E41

Pinks: RV55, RV63, RV00
