Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers day to all those mum's out there, I hope you have had a relaxing and spoilt day!

I got to go out to my mum's for lunch (it was SO yummy) and the kids brought me some paving stones to pave a way to the clothes line so I don't have to get my slippers wet in winter hanging out the washing lol.
I went away for a run (man that was the hardest 8km's I have done in a while) and while I was away Abby made me this:

She had done a wonderful job making the cake and cutting it into the heart and looking up the internet for the icing recipie and then piping it all by herself!  Thanks Abby - love you heaps!
Jamie is in the kitchen as we speak making waffles - hot waffles YUM, maple syrup and ice cream (going to have to go back and run the block again!).  So I have been very spoilt this Mothers Day!

I have also been playing in my Scrap Room this weekend - take a look at the mess I got myself into:
But I did make a few cards for my display board that I want to make up to take to Beck's crop for a cause and I was happy with how they turned out using Whiff of Joy Stamps take a look:

The decorative edge around the ovals are done with the Martha Stewart Punch's - I had a ball it was heaps of fun - thanks to the tutorial here!  I have also used some of the Tim Holtz New Distress pads great value at $29.00 for 36 Double sided acid free pads - we have the girls ones and the boys ones on the water as we speak as the first lot FLEW out the door!
Also a while back I downloaded an image from Mo's Digital Pencil and I decided that I would love to make up a card with it for Mothers day - so here is my card:
Again this is using the new Tim Holtz Distress Pads, I made my own flower (the big one) from the retro punch's gota love how easy that is, and the Martha Stewart Gothic Punch around the Page Punch set. She is painted in with Tim Holtz Distress ink and I used the Tim Holtz Distress Stickles on the Angel's wings.

Well waffle's are ready so I am off to eat them before the ice cream melts!

Happy Mothers day to all the mum's out there and to the rest I hope you all had a fantstic weekend.

*hugs*
