Sugar Bowl #6 - Mother's Day

Welcome to another Sugar Bowl Thursday!

This week the challenge is to create something for Mother's Day!

"As Mothers Day here in the UK falls on March 22nd this year, please make a card (or other craft project) for a Mother. This does not have to be specifically a Mothers Day card, just something, you know, that a Mother would love!

A choice of AMAZING prizes for this challenge.
The winner of this challenge (chosen by will get to choose either

The all new 'Gorjuss Girls Set 2'
The all new 'Baskets & Butterflies collection' by Elisabeth Bell
Sugar Nellie"


This is a wonderful prize!! I would love either of those stamp sets!

Now first of all my apologies for the poor piccie! I wanted to show the gift bag and card as a set and my photography skills have let me down. If I get a chance I am going to re-take and edit my post!

I re-decorated a brown gift bag and made a made a matching card. I was inspired by a tag card I saw on Moni's blog a while ago and just adored the pink theme she had going! So I gave it a go, with her permission!

Here is a close up of the gift bag. All papers are BG 'Bittersweet' collection and I have use some of the cardstock stickers also. The letters are American crafts thickers.

My card is made from the same layout (approx!) and the same papers. Again with cardstock stickers and American Craft thickers.

Now, I just need to get a yummy gift for my mum to put in it!! This challenge is perfect timing as my Mum and Dad live in Peru, South America and they are home for just a few short weeks. Otherwise it would have been difficult for her to get this! They are coming up to stay with us all next week so I will be absent from blogging as I want to spend as much time as I can with them.

Thanks for looking and I hope you find time to make something gorgeous for Mother's Day! Go check out all the other' sweeties' work. They are all totally gorgeous!
