Another Mother's Day Set

Good Sunday morning to you all :) What a weird day we had yesterday, who would have thought that us here in Mackay would feel the effects of an earthquake!!! I was sitting at my dining table when all of a sudden my huge side windows starting shaking uncontrollably. I was seeing which kid I was going to get cranky at for running in the house but they were all in the lounge watching a DVD.

We found out later that Bowen which is south of Townsville suffered the effects of a 5.2 earthquake which was felt all the way from Townsville to us here in Mackay. How freaky is that!!

Anyway, enough of these crazy weather patterns and onto some more Mother's Day creations. I have another set to show you which includes a box and a small gift card so on with the show:-

Now I'm finding one of the most difficult colour to photograph is the very gorgeous Concord Crush and it didn't help that I took these pics on a day when the weather wasn't too favourable either. I did take photos of the set together but they look downright terrible - the brads I used are of a So Saffron colour but in my pics they came out really yellow. Also the ribbon isn't blue either, I swear it is a lovely purple colour. My colour combination consists of Very Vanilla, Concord Crush and Pale Plum. Both of these creations were inspired by the very lovely Mary Fish and you can find Mary's creations here which also includes a video tutorial of the cute folded flower.

That's it for me today and now to tackle the washing and after that, some crafting!!

Happy Stamping,
