Mother's Day

Hiya

Hope everyone is well and making the most of the weather before it changes again...lol, on Sunday we drove to the Brean Downs for a walk, it was really lovely but very breezy.
Today's cards is for my MIL for mother's day. The card is based on a Phill Martin card, never seen any of his cards before and I think he gives some great ideas using the dies.  I caught him on a C&C repeat which surprised me as all I ever seem to see is the ScanNCut and hunkydory stuff. I had to make do with stash I already had, the roses were handmade using the Cherrylyn Rose dies. I thought the box style card would make a nice little addition to her mother's day card and can't believe how easy and nice it was to make. I followed the instructions from here.




As always thanks for your visit, is it much appreciate!
