I know it's not Halloween.........

but this cute stamp was itching to be inked up.

I am still trawling through my new stamp collection which is why you are seeing Halloween in the Spring/ Summer, lol.

I used a Cleo Craft kit for this card which consisted of My Minds Eye, Boo to you papers. They are such fun papers, and am glad i still have plenty more to use.

I made this as a gate fold card, learning new designs and techniques as i go along.

Today, as i had some "me" time i wanted to create a LO, about something very heart felt that my Daughter wrote me last week. I haven't achieved any scrapping in the last 3 months, which is why i have turned to card making, but i couldn't let this moment disappear.

I used the April kit from Cleo Crafts which consisted of American Crafts, Letterbox collection. Now i don't normally like American craft papers but i think they have excelled their self's with this collection, just seriously yummy.

Photo is of Hannah and i a few years back now. Hannah wrote this beautiful little letter last week and when she read it to me, it literally made me cry, i was so upset, with happiness of course.

She wrote:

My Mum is fantastic,
She plays with me,
She cuddles me and she reads stories with me,
My Mum is amazing.
She smiles at me,
She kisses me and puts me to bed,
She is a super Mum

She just melted my heart, and this is why i wanted to capture this now.
I am really pleased with the final outcome and not only that but i have also got her own handwriting included in the LO too, and will always have this beautiful memory.

Am now hoping i can start doing a few more LO's in the weeks to come along with the card making i am still very much enjoying.

Thank you so much for stopping my and leaving lovely messages, am of now to play with some sand, my next mission!! All will be revealed.
Take care
