For a special mum

We were lucky enough a few weeks ago to have a new The Range store open a few weeks ago so now I have access to even more crafting supplies as the store is next to Hobbycraft and the Range offers competition price wise.                                                                                                           I had a wander around the store and one or two crafty bits fell into my basket and amongst them was this cute stamp which I thought would be perfect for mother's day.                                                                                                                I coloured him in with promarkers and used sakura glaze pens for the tea. I stamped the teddy onto a spellbinders fancy oval and mounted that on a layer of green gingham freebie paper from and put that on a layer of red copy paper.The sentiments were also something that dropped into my shopping basket and again are from Docrafts at the Range. The roses are from my stash,the leaves are die cut coloured with promarkers.

I decided to make a wee gift box to put my mum's mother's day gift in after seeing a picnic style box whilst having a wander around blogland, with a fab tutorial here. I covered the box in the same red and green gingham and added a die cut butterfly and white ribbons along with more red roses from my stash. The window i added acetate and decorated with a spellbinder fancy circle.

Mum loved both as well as her gift.

I would like to enter these projects into the following challenges:-

catch the bug-anything goes
little claires monthly challenge-make a tag
