Happy Mothers Day

Happy Sunday Stampers,

(photo take 2 - I changed the ribbon, I decided it was too much red and needed something softer.)

It's Mothers Day in Australia today. For all you Mother's out there, wishing a very special day.

It is also time for another Magnolia Down Under Challenge and this week it is PAPER TOLE.

I enjoyed this challenge, as most of my cards are paper toled, maybe not in the true sense, but I always like to add some extra layers for dimension & to give a little life to my cards.

I made this Easel card for my Mum, as a lot of you know she has not been well, but everyday she is a lot stronger.

This is my very first Magnolia stamp purchased and I still love her, she was feeling a little neglected, so I thought I would show her some love.

I Love this card! Your colouring is so cheery and bright! LOVE it! I wonder if this adorable Tilda is still sweet. I know your Mom must love this card.I do have a questio...I have been looking for the edge punch you used for the white eyelet strip. Can you tell me what brand and name of punch??? Thanks for sharing!

Hi Terry,
I hope you see this reply, I tried to find your blog or email without success. The border punch is my very favourite and I use it a lot, I'm sorry I sometime forget to mention it. The name of it is Embossed Scallop Edge Punch & Emboss - by Martha Stewart, a fairly old one and very hard to get but you might be able to google the name and find one that way. Thanks for the lovely comments. hugs Jodie from Oz

Terry, oops forget to mention, this adorable Tilda is available and if you click the link I have added next to her name it will take you to right to her. hugs again Jodie from Oz
