magnolia mothers day cards!!

well here i am day 6 of my blog!! hanging in there!!
as promised i did get my crafting things out -and YES i did some crafting! -mothers day cards!!
i had made these cards a few weeks ago , just need to do the insides and envelopes!!(as mothers day has crept up on me much to fast!!)
i made two small envelopes, with liners, and small cards in pink card using my quickutz revolution dies and printed out small inserts!! saying our mums had - a years subscriptions to their fave magazines!!
then got out my new studio G stamps, to decorate the inside of the cards and envelopes !! then added some glitter!!
the front of the cards used dovecraft glamour paper, party tilda-magnolia stamp, papermania adhesive stones, outline stickers says "happy mothersday" and stickles glitter!!
while lewis is at nursery today, i hope to stamp some more magnolias and paint them!! (with hot milky coffee latte and some tesco`s chocolate orange sticks(from the fridge)!! oooooooh heaven!!!-just for two hours!!!

first things first - thank you fran (franmade)and jo (fairymadjo) for your kind comments -you both gave me a gentle nudge to get this blog started!!!
secondly thank you to vicki (bestest friend) for her kind comments -as usual my rock, my shoulder, and my biggest fan!!!!LOL what would i do without you??? so today i have included the card vicki made for lewis`s 4th birthday (last week) -vicki is now stepping into the world of stamping!!!!
hopefully some more magnolia stamps will be finding their way to my house tomorrow!!! least the postman won`t be dragging his bag along the ground -as they weigh so little!!
i really must get down to some crafting!!!
well guess it`s time to see how i can add bits to this blog -maybe the heading needs some sorting out!!!??? think i need my husbands help with that!!
