Happy Mother's Day

Well, here in Australia, it is Mother's Day this weekend - the 14th July to be exact.  I love this time of year and always get spoilt by my 2 children. 

I have been busy making Mother's Day cards and even though I only needed 2, I ended up making 5.  At least next year I will have a fall back...

There have been some amazing cards on pinterest and the internet in general.  I have to say there are some amazingly creative people out there. 

Anyway, here are my 5 cards.   I will only give a little information about them as it's helpful to keep the post short.  I will provide information in regard to supplies and credit to those I CASE'd (which stands for Copy and Share Everything - a motto of Stampin' Up!).  Yes it is okay to copy someone else's creation, as long as you give them the credit.  Sometimes it is just what you need to get your own creativity started and to learn valuable techniques.

Card 5:

This card is CASED from Julie DeGuia for her Global Design Project.  Julie used MOM, but in Australia we use MUM, so just changed it up a tiny bit.  An absolutely beautiful card Julie that I just had to create for myself.  Thank you.
