Happy Mothers Day!!

 In Ireland and the UK its Mothering Sunday today, so Happy Mothers Day to you all,  hope you all have a relaxing day.

As you can see I don't have a Motthers Day card to show you, just two masculine cards that I have made for the current Hero Arts challenge. See here for this months challenges, Hero Arts are always very generous with their prizes so go on have a go this month!!

Both my cards are made using the new clear set  "Going" its a really useful set, as we all know mens cards are notoriously hard to make!!  For the top card I have used an old chipboard label from a pair of jeans, it was already distressed so I just scrapped of the price and stamped the car image in its place.
 For the second card I have cut up an old map for the border strip. The car is stamped and cut from blue paper and I have highlighted the areas that would be chrome with a silver gel pen.

Yesterday I went with my friend to a  fun  Adult Education course on quilting,  this is the cushion I made, I am really pleased with the end result and I am definately going to try something a little bigger next time!!

Look at this yummy ribbon, The Ribbon Girls are doing a little giveaway for Mothers Day, so visit their blog to be entered into the draw.

Hope you all enjoy your Sunday!
