Celebrate Mums Challenge 132

Hi There,
Over at www.myshericrafts this time it is design sister Peachy's turn to pick the challenge and she has chosen "celebrate Mom's"  well infact it can be any woman in your life who needs celebrating for one reason or another.

For me this was easy as I chose Mothers Day which over here in the UK it was 30th March. So my Mum has received this card already.

She not been too well over the past couple of months but is doing well now. I made her this large 7x7 card using what has to be (in my opinion) the best for a long time set of papers from Kaisercraft "curiosity collection". I just love them.

In fact if the truth be known this card was made out of the left overs from a layout I made of her and my Dad. I took a heart doily and inked it up using spiced marmalade and fire brick to pull it all together. The topper is on foam pads and the butterfly's and small roses are all 3d too.
Now you thing of the woman/mum you would like to celebrate and share your project with us.
Here is the layout I was talking about.

A moment of laughter Challenge 131


Now this is a good one, over at www.myshericrafts this time design team sister Charlotte has asked us to make a card or project with some laughter on/in it.
Well I really had to put on my thinking cap for this one and then I remembered Sandy had sent me an image she had found on a free page.

My friend in works husband is going in to hospital for a new knee and you know how those gowns fit. So I made him this.

Look how his butt is slightly lighter as it never sees the light of day (I hope). The papers are from Hot Off The Press a few years ago. I added a couple of safety pins just for fun.
Now its your turn to think funny and join in.
