Hello my friends! Ready for a long post.. to make for my long blogging leave?! :)
How is everyone? I hope that no one spent the last week wrestling with fever, like I did. It doesn't want to leave me!!! My goodness!! My lovely .. and "very" kind DT fellow members suggested me to drink Lysol.. hang garlic around my neck and some more lovely idas!! Yeah .. those girls!! Can you believe.. behind those gorgeous creations they make???!!! I'm tellin on ya now!! Sob sob!! LOL
They were fabulous, cheering me up and cracking me.. even though a bit cruel!
Finally today I have something to show you. During the week I stole some minutes from when the fever used to let me free for some time to make this set with the gorgeous Mmmm.. Yes Please!!
I have chosen to show you how these stamps can be fun and versatile. I made this project with Mother's Day in mind. All mums love tender images like these, especially on their Special Day, when they so remember when we were young! Mum just starts crying on this day when she sees me, and starts telling everyone how small I was born and how much I used to cry in the night!! hehe
So I'm sure she'll love this set, even though it has a boy in it (oh yes, I have a brother and sister as well)
I wanted also to show you that even though Elisabeth's images are all so detailed, they can be also paper-pieced. In fact I did that with the table-cloth and dish cloth Belle has. It really helped for that raised effect, don't you think?
I also chose to give this card a two tone look.. natural browns (even on skin) and different shades of blue. I loved doing it. So I guess I can enter it for Crafty Creatons Challenges; as they have the theme BLUE. Also Charizma Cards want to see Distressing. If you look properly, you can see that I distreesed most of my edges, using Frayed Burlap on cream paper, and Faded Jeans on the Blue cs. (on the box)
This is the inside view of my card. I kept it simple.
This other piece of the set is called a Metric Slanted Corner Box. I followed a tutorial I found here, and it came easily together. The sweets won't remain there till Mother's day,(can you bet?) but I'm sure my mum will really love this set with some small choccies in it :)
My flower arrangment :)

Have a lovely weekend my friends, and do let me know that you've been here today please. I need some lifting up after all that Lysol!!! :)
