Happy Mother's Day - & some toys!

Well, the new toys arrived at the office today (it's easier getting things delivered there so I don't miss the postman at home) - look!!
 Unfortunately I can't use the "dream" mover and shaker yet as I don't have a base plate die big enough for it to go in - so that means more shopping, lol!  


I did have a play with the rosettes though - and used the original larger size one too - now just need to find something to put this on!!





And this evening I have made my Mother's Day card so it can get in the post nice and early for Sunday!
Used some paper from the shabby chic paperstack, sprayed with glimmer mist (snap dragon) and then marshmallow to tone it back down again! and the Wendy star stamp and sentiment;  and Tim's butterflies. Ink is dusty concord.

That's really tough Helen if you need to do more shopping.

Thanks for all your kind comments, every one really appreciated. Even though I can't visit much, I am with you in spirit every time the boys don their shirts.

I've use movers and shakers just on their own, without the base tray and it worked! Try it! Love your rosette and your Mother's day card is just fabulous. She will love it. keeleyxx
