Back at last!

Isn't it strange how you get so used to being 'connected' that when you lose your connection for any reason you feel at a loss? I've only been without internet for a couple of days but it's been weird...and once back online my priority was to catch up on work, but now finally I'm back. Nothing for you today (for all the obvious reasons lol!) but I've been furiously trying to get some Mother's Day cards finished (it's on March 2nd) and thought I'd share them with you:


Credits: Flowers by Anna Benjamin of Paper Moons, Lace Action by Karen Stimson of WoolSweater Street, Pearls from Jenn Trippetti's Rosy Outlook, Actions by Atomic Cupcake, the rest by me.

Of course, this size and resolution doesn't really do them justice, but I kinda like them. I was working a bit outside my comfort zone because the palette came from this month's colour challenge at Deco Pages. I think they only want layouts rather than kits submitted, but since I did create papers for these, let me know if you'd like them. There's a stone texture (for my mom's strength) and a damask print (because she was a weaver before she married and made damask).

Really glad that so many of you are finding the Asphalt Farewell kit useful, I was disappointed at not being able to submit it, but I feel heaps better about it now.


  1. Beautiful beautiful job. I thought your Mother's Day was the same as ours and it was Father's Day that was different. Maybe that's US??? So what did your mum think?
