House Mouse #26 - Mothers

Our challenge at House Mouse this week is Mothers. As mothers day is approaching (UK) I thought it would be a lovely idea for us all to make something for a mother. It doesn't have to be for your own mum, it can be for a friend, aunty, daughter, neighbour, anyone who's a mum - etc. that you think is a wonderful mum.

I chose to make a box to fill with small cards for my grandson to give to his mother,
as she is forever asking for cards for a variety of occasions. The tutorial for this is one Spitcoaststampers. This tutorial is for a box 3"x3" but I altered the measurements to make it 5"x5". There are only four cards in it at the moment but as I have until 22nd March I hope to have about 10/12 ready for then. I used Basic Grey Eva papers, and decorated it with Petaloo flowers and leaves from the Leone Em branch punch. This image is
Mudpie Munch coloured with watercolours and I started the cards with two baby cards
using the Cosy Shoe image.


Materials
Bazzill BC : Basic Grey Eva DP : Stamp - HM Mudpie Munch : Rowney watercolours : Petaloo flowers : Leone Em branch punch : Rest from stash
