Sending Love and Hugs

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back.  Today I am sharing a card for everyone out there that has been impacted by Covid19.  In New Zealand we have finally started coming out of lockdown to a very different world and it is still very scary out there despite very low numbers of new cases in NZ.  I have spent the time at home working on my colouring skills and different flowers using different techniques.

I have been looking for this LR026 decorative die from Marianne Designs for some time and was thrilled when I was able to get it from E-Bay.  I know that I am going to get a lot of use with it as it is the perfect backdrop for lovely flowers.  I was inspired by Uma Didwania with her Heartfelt Creations.Wild Roses created using Dress My Craft Soft Oriental Paper.

Materials Used:

Mother’s Have a Beautiful Day

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back to a very different Mother’s Day celebration today.  I am at home with my husband and daughter having a very quiet day and will be hopefully catching up with my son when our restrictions are released in the next week or so.

I have a special card to cheer all those celebrating Mother’s Day around the world.  I have used Heartfelt Creations Wild Rose and Oakberry Lane flowers and leaves with the new Elegant Oval Frame dies.  I have had limited craft supplies at home and so have used the Calla Lily papers with these flowers.

I apologise for the quality of the photos – the lighting is not great at home.

I hope that you are safe and well wherever you are in the world.  Kia Kaha – stay strong
