Do you know how versatile crumb cake is?

Hi and welcome to my blog. Don’t you just love it when you stumble upon a colour combination that you fall in love with?

These pretty designer series papers are from Stampin’ Up, in pretty colours of blushing bride and concord crush, and there are a few more colours in the pack. I teamed these with crumb cake ink and cardstock and just loved how they looked together …

The beautiful butterflies bigz die was perfect for the focal point …

Blushing bride and crumb cake – another marriage made in heaven…


I hope you like my cards for today – both are DL size. Mother’s day in the UK was earlier this year, but other parts of Europe and the US, are still to celebrate their special day for mums. If you changed up the sentiment, these cards would be great for lots of different occasions – birthday, get well, friendship, thank you, or just because. What will you make with yours?

Mother’s Day surprise …

I can’t help sharing the stunning laser cut, personalised Mother’s day card I received from my lovely daughter…

Mothers day card

I hope she doesn’t mind me sharing what she wrote inside …

“To the best mum in the world, galaxy, solar system and universe.  Wishing you the happiest of Mothers’ Day!

Thank you so much for being the amazing fabulous mum that you are – I wouldn’t be who or where I am without you (and let’s face it, I’m awesome!)

I love you more than I could ever say.  You’re the best mum and friend a girl could have.  Thanks for being you!

Happy Mothers’ Day, all my love forever … and to the moon and back … “

I couldn’t see through my tears to read the card as it also came with an amazing gift too, and I welled up as soon as I saw it.  My husband stepped in and read the card to me while I sobbed happy tears into my tissue…

And if that wasn’t enough, a beautiful bouquet from my daughter and son-in-law, was hand-delivered today…

It has all my favourite flowers, including the wonderfully fragrant freesia, which can perfume a whole room …

the delicately coloured blue of the sea holly, which were in their wedding flowers last year, and of course pink star gazer lilies … just like the one on my blog…
