Cards made by my Mother...
Some time ago I showed you cards that my Mother had made, and she has sent me some more cards to show you. My Mother is in her early 70's and really only been crafting on and off for a few months, she does not have much time to sit and craft, with looking after my Father, working half day, doing the housework and general running around, who can blame her. Whilst she was visiting me in April/May I showed her very quickly a few things like embossing with the heat gun, which she had purchased and some of my embossing powder which she took home with her. I have noticed on one of these cards that I will put up she has used gold emobssing powder in a Happy Birthday stamp which has not come out perfectly but has a different effect, still good enough for the card, I was really pleased when I saw that because I showed her in a rush, she tried it and then we rushed off back to their B&B. With the help from Nancy Watt and Making cards magazine she has learnt so much and as soon as she arrived here in the UK in March next year I will give you a subscription for that magazine so that she can carry on learning from it. I also sent her home with a craft candy that I won from Gill at Creations by Gill m, Gill if you see this post I am sure you will notice some of the items in that candy stash that she has used. Also I think she is doing some designing herself, as the card with Martin on has a fancy envelope with it.
Mom when you come on my blog to see whats going on, I want you to know that I am very proud of your achievement and that you have the energy to do this and cant wait for you to live closer so that we craft together.
This card was a thank you card made from a card pack she got from C&C and only uses it for Best!!!!
This 21st Card was made for her oldest Grandson who turned 21 in August, I just hope that he really appreciates it and does not just throw it in the bin once he has read it.... as boys do! this card is really beautiful and for only crafting for such a short time - love it. (Can you see the gold embossing on the greeting?)
It would be great if you could leave your comment of encouragement for my Mother (Joan) and maybe next year she will have her own blog! who knows!
