Mother's Day

I can't believe it's been over a month since I posted!! Woops! In my defence I have had a lot of other commitments, especially from my university studies. I have been making cards, I just haven't had time to post them. And even then, I haven't made as many cards as I would have liked :)

Today's card is for the Just Add Ink challenge - Just Add... Mother. I have been wanting to try an easel box card ever since I saw it in my card magazine. I have made the little note card to go inside it as well, and there is a bookmark from my girls to go in too :) This project is for my beautiful mum, who is absolutely awesome if I do say so myself!

Please excuse the printer and blinds in the photo! I have found that the best place to take photos of my projects is in my study/craft room, however I ran out of time to photograph through the day!
