Mothering Sunday

In the UK Mothering Sunday is 2 weeks before Easter, which this year fell last weekend. I decided to try out the mini exploding pop-up box for both MIL and my Mum, using some of the beautiful card and papers that Georgina gave me when she came to visit for a wonderful weekend. Thank you G, and yes I have linked up to your blog so you'll just have to update it now!

I used this tutorial from The Craft Spa, and came up with these little delights.



Both of them were intrigued and quite charmed. They like getting something different from me, and it's getting more and more of a challenge to find new techniques. But you know me - I like a challenge.

Talking of which, I'm entering these into the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Spring fever
Cuttlebug Mania (I just discovered this through Pixie's Crafty Workshop - thank you Di!) - Freeze frame
Papertake Weekly - Happy anything
Simon Says Stamp - Spring Pinterest Inspiration
