Wow todays post was just soooo exciting. I received a box from my awesome folks in sunny Perth (I tell everyone its sunny even if its not LOL just gives me another reason to complain about the cold weather here!). Check out how clever my mum is. She made me a double pocket bag and a matching card and I absolutely LOVE it. Thanks so much Mum. I think you are so clever and I am happy to be the recipient of any of your creations! Just to top it off, Mum filled the bag with salted licorice (the Big diamonds, my favourite YUM!)
Love you mum and thanks again! (by the way you really need to send some more licorice as the bag seems to be empty now??????).
Thanks for looking I have many other things to share today but really wanted to have a post dedicated to my clever and inspiring mum!

and I tried a closeup of the sparkle on the butterflies but... well.... you get the idea?
I have taken to decorating the inside of my cards now too but kept this one really simple as the kids all like to write their special messages to their grandparents as well.
With keeping up my theme of everything having to match etc etc oh and of course me really NEEDING to use some of those gorgeous new buttons from SU I also made this little bag which will hold the chocolates that will have to go in at the last minute or otherwise be taste tested until I have finished them all!!!

In addition, as the school quiz night/auction has finished there is a need to make thank you cards and send them to all those that contributed towards the huge success that it was. We need to make 60 cards (yep 60 aaarrrrgh) and being on my tangerine tango experiment I thought I would simplify the card above and came up with this. It is now awaiting approval before I attempt to carve some time out of my week to do the other 59!!!
