Mother's Day card

I thought it was about time I used my Stampin' Up stuff......I've been hoarding it for far too long!

I made this card using Springtime Vintage paper on a naturals ivory card base.
I used the Baby Blossoms stamp set to stamp the background and then fussy cut the flowers from a sheet of paper.  I embossed the back of the flowers with a petal shaping tool and glued them to the card with pinflair dimensional glue.

 The ribbon is Mellow Moss taffeta and the sentiment is from Elzybells stamped with Chocolate Chip ink.

Oh my poor tooth!
After all the worrying and stressing.... I was just getting ready to leave the house this morning when I got a phone call from the surgery.......the dentist was off sick!
and the appointment was cancelled.....
Talk about being relieved......then estatic.......until I realised......I've got to go next week instead....!

I'm pleased to say the tooth fairy came last night, much to Phoebe's relief.
Having tucked her into bed early I was surprised to hear what can only be described as 'wrecking noises' coming from her room. When I went to investigate, I found her with her curtains opened and trying to open the window! 'Just making sure the fairy can get in', was her explanation......after telling her the fairy was small enough to slip under the door, she settled down to sleep.
Next morning she informed me that when Peppa Pig lost her tooth, the tooth fairy had to come through the window.....and that's why she was opening hers.......

Thanks for joining me today!

This is gorgeous and so original Sarah - I love it! The stamped background makes a lovely base for those cut-out flowers. Phoebe is such a little character - you're lucky she didn't take a sledgehammer to the chimney breast at Christmas! Vicky x

What beautiful DP, I love the large posy and it looks great popped up on the leafy bkgd :0)
These are the little memories you need to write down, children's logic is surprisingly logical!

Beautiful card Sarah. lOve the subtle colours. You've also reminded me that I still have some of this sprintime vintage paper somewhere too. I must dig it out!
