I am back again with another card made with the adorable Fox & Friends set. I so enjoyed having a play with this set, it is just so cute. As promised here is my next cute card:-
I think this makes the perfect little boy's card. I have used Not Quite Navy as the base card and the polka dot embossing folder to do the next layer. I also used Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Old Olive and Basic Gray. It's hard to see in the photo but the fox is stamped with Basic Gray.

I received a new stamp set yesterday and thought I would set aside some time today for a play. It is the lovely Fox & Friends set and I just love the cuteness of these animals.
The following card is a case from one that I had saved onto my computer but I don't know who belonged to it. I would like to say a big thank you for whoever it was and if anybody knows please pass on my thanks.
Aren't they just the cutest cheeky monkeys!!! I even used yellow, brown and green together which I must confess I am not a big fan of yellow but I thought, with monkeys, why not!!! The background of the white is actually stamped with Barely Banana and the polka dot background.
I ended up making three cards with this set so will save the other two for another post. Can't get too excited now :)

I hope all of the Mothers out there had a great day yesterday. I know I was very spoilt for the day. My daughter gave me a slow cooker which I can't wait to try out. I also received Julie Goodwin's recipe book (she was the first winner of Master Chef) and a beautiful ladybug charm for my bracelet.
Julie's recipe book is just amazing, I will definitely be trying most of them (I love using my family as guinea pigs when I'm trying new things!! - although it is an idea to have something else on hand just in case).
I was most surprised with my middle son's choice of gifts that he bought for me from his school Mother's Day stall (should give him $10 more often!!). He came home with a necklace/earring set, a coffee mug filled with all sorts of coffee delights, some bath salts and a bath bomb and also a cute little crystal flower hanger. Wow, a very spoilt Mum. My eldest son made me a lovely chocolate cake as well and he did a great job with it as well as the icing, yummy!!!
Anyway on with the show and tell - my mum's mother's day card which was almost completely cased from the very lovely Nikki Stalker which you can find here but I decided to make mine a full size card.
It's not the best of photos as I tried taking this inside because it was too windy on my back table. The card base is made with Not Quite Navy and I used the very quick and easy Manhattan Flower embossing folder with my Big Shot.
We had my parent's come over for dinner last night and it was really nice to have the both of us Mums not having to do anything.

My title of this post pretty much sums it up as sometimes I just can't think of anything to put!!! I sometimes look at a card and can pretty much name it something but the following card I am showing you is just that... a card.
This card is made from a previous Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge which you can find here.
The base of this card is the gorgeous new Melon Mambo followed by a layer of Rich Razzleberry and Very Vanilla. The eyelet border has been punched onto Pink Pirouette. I just love these flowers from Petal Pizzazz, just perfect. Oh, and I can't forget the very lovely felt flowers now can I? It's hard to tell from the pic but I have stamped "happy birthday" in Rich Razzleberry on the bottom.
My lovely friend, Karen, also let me use her Sanded Background stamp to jazz up the base card a little, thanks Karen :)
