Going Green!

Happy St Patrick's Day! I actually saw a tiny bit of the St Patrick's Day parade in London on Sunday lunchtime.....we ambled along the street just in time to see the very last float and all the street cleaners!! Ha, ha!

The theme over at Cupcake Craft Challenge this week is green - they want to see our projects featuring lots and lots and lots of green! The Dt have come up with some fab designs, all really different....take a peek here.

My card isn't to celebrate St Patrick's Day, but it is very green. Ok, there is a tiny bit of yellow, but my flower needed a yellow centre and I hope the ladies at CCC will forgive me!! Ha, ha!

This was originally a Mother's Day card - the backing paper was the same and there was a white panel with the sentiment "to an amazing mum" on it. A work colleague saw it and really liked the backing paper, but already had a mother's day card. They did however need a card for their mum's Birthday!So I decided to recycle the original card.

I kept the backing paper because they liked it so much, but attached a new white panel with the sentiment "Happy Birthday Mum".

I then punched two big flowers out of green paper and attached a big yellow button by sewing it in place. I think this makes a lovely cheerful card and hopefully my colleague will like it! It's a nice idea to have "Happy Birthday Mum" on the card, makes it a bit more personal. I have used people's names before, but never thought about other familyt members!

I'm also working on some new designs with a tea theme...so watch this space!

Thanks for stopping by today, enjoy the sunshine before the rain comes back!
