Hello and Welcome...

Hello & Welcome...My name is Anne-Marie, I am a full-time administration assistant for a local housing association, I have a husband, two adult sons, and a mad dog named Fritz. I spend any spare minute crafting (although there are never enough spare minutes)...anything from making cards, papercrafts, knitting, crochet, baking and making jams, curds etc. I also enjoy growing my own fruit/veg in my greenhouse/garden.

I hope I will post something that may be of interest to you.

Gruffies & Guests Challenge #3 Fit for Mum or Special Female

Hi All

Here's my half-way reminder for our latest challenge over at Gruffies & Guests the lovely theme this month is Fit for Mum or Special Female.  

The Lucky Winner will receive a £15 voucher from our Sponsor Scribble and Scrap

The Scribble & Scrap Shop 

Here's my DT creation, hope it gives some inspiration and helps you with your creations.

I have made this for my Mum for Mother's Day, using the cute Happy Hoppers image from the Gruffies & Happy Hoppers cd

Which you can get HERE

I have used a glossing glue pen on the bubbles to make them 3d, not sure if you can see from the picture but it gives a great effect.

I cut a piece out of a facecloth to make the mini towel.

Hope you like my card.  Please join us over at Gruffies & Guests and enter this month's blog challenge with your lovely mother's day cards or cards for a special female.  I look forward to seeing all your lovely creations.

Thanks for popping by Anne-Marie xx
