Mums the Word at The Crafty Pad

Super Sunday All!

Wow! Can you believe how fast this year is going! 

Anyway, onto the good stuff and why you are all here.

Time for a new challenge at 

This week is an  easy peasy one for you all

Challenge  #161 - Mum's the word 
It can be a Mother's Day card, Birthday card, something for your Grandmother, so long as your creation has the word MUM or mother somewhere on it.

I took the opportunity of getting one of my the many mothers day pressies out of the way and made something extra special for my Mother In Law :)

Lots of photos this week again!
I am so in love with this and if it was in any other color mix I would be keeping it for ME!.  I will say though, I NEVER want to roll another ribbon rose in my lifetime!  But it was well worth the effort though I think :) 

This week I am using the hot new release in the shop today from
 The Crafty Pad Designs
Tea Set and Tea Set Sentiments
You can check yours out of the shop HERE
I colored my image today with Tombow Markers, added some great touches of bling to the card with red and black pearls a red and black feather and a posh pin.  The mum sentiment is a rub off from my stash that I brought over a year ago and still have not used so I thought is was about time.

The cup is full of fabric roses that I sewed and rolled while watching TV, added in some big red pearls and pearl wisps for a bit of flair and the gorgeous bird I picked up at Spotlight on an impulse buy, it falls into that saw it had to have it category :) I am sure you all know the one :P

OH Leesa, this is just fabulous. Your card has so many wonderful embellishment that I had to tear myself away so that I could enjoy the floral arrangement. This too is just so beautiful.
