Sweetest Mum Card

I made this using the new DCWV stack, pretty colours in this paper range, lots of yummy chocolate and pinks. I cut some 1" circles out of chocolate, cream and a tan colour with my cricut, and some small scallop circles with my nestabilities, which I sort of folded to look like sweet papers. The sentiment is computer generated and the ribbon is Martha Stewart. I scribbled on the chocolates with liquid pearls, and added a couple of little pearl gems. One of them looks a bit wonky in the photo, strange, it's fine in reality.

I have had some requests to put a followers button on the blog, so here it is. I have no idea what this does, but it would be nice if I had some followers I suppose, so click the button if you want to follow me. I feel like the Pied Piper of Hamelin!

A huge congrats to my fellow Funky Hand team mate and bloggy friend Kath, she has won the coveted title of Cardmaker of the Year 2008 in a contest run by Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine in the UK. She gets a place on their design team so look out for her work. They couldn't have given the title to a nicer person, so toot toot to you Kath, very well done x You can see Kath's blog HERE
