The Cupboard Trilogy - A Mothers Love

Good Morning everyone,

I'm here a little late (well a day actually) with my DT post for The Cupboard Trilogy

I've been feeling very off colour this week, I found a lump where there shouldn't be and have gradually been in more and more pain through the week, I eventually plucked up the courage to visit the doctor and it seems I have a pretty bad infection in my breast and under my armpit - ouch .... still it's a better result than it could have been!

So onto my cards, as our Challenge is A Mothers Love I made 3 - one each for Lee's mum and step mum and one for his nan (none for mine as we don't speak sadly - long story).

Warning these are 3 8x8 cards so there are lots of pictures.

I used my Wellington CD rom to print off all the elements for these cards (think i need a new ink cartridge now lol)

Everything was matted onto kraft card by papermania - and i need more of that to now :-)

I even printed out inserts for both sides - The CDROM has some gorgeous sentiments on it.

Here's a close up of each one.

I used a different topper for each.

And added flowers, pearls, ribbon and stickles, I also added die cut swirls and corners.

Wow I warned you about all the pics didn't I - if you made it to the end of the post well done lol!

I'm off now to write a shopping list for Lee and the girls.

I'll see you a bit later with my DT post for Pink Gem.

Love and hugs xx Cara xx
