MSE Challenge - My Pet Dragon

Made this card for my Godson William for his 6th birthday. 

William truly is a miracle - he was born 11 weeks eaarly back in 2005

After much concern, and lots of love he's now happy 6 year old who loves Star Wars and Lego.  He's a fighter so I've sent him a car with George and his pet dragon on.
The stamp is by elzybells, stripy paper is from the Earth Love Collection at Cosmo Cricket.

MSE Challenge Card (kind of) - Mum

Whoopsie - just realised the challenge was for a "Mothers Day Card" not a card for your Mum.  Never mind eh - If Mothers Day is anything like her birthday I'll be finishing the mothers day card off at 11.30 pm on the Saturday before.

I'm going to claim it fit's the bill as its for My Mothers (birth) Day and hope no-one notices ;-)

I had big plans for this card - you know - pretty stamp, artfully coloured in, glittered and glossed up a bit. artfully matted up and then embellished to the hilt, lace flowers, pearls, the lot.  Sadly, my employer and my son had other ideas and so I was left to start it at 10pm the night before Mum's birthday.

So, cream card blank, punched with a MS punch at the bottom.  Cosmo cricket 'togetherness' background paper.  Alpha stickers by pink paislee, buttons from stash (I think the little yellow ones are by papermania), punched flowers from stash and label cut from the Cricut tags bags and boxes cartridge.  I really really want those punches but everywhere I've looked has only one in stock or charge a fortune for postage.  

Here's Mum's cake which we also made the night before.  Well I made the cake and "&son" iced it

I didn't even get a chance to buy her a present but I took her out to Elsecar Heritage Centre and she chose some pretty teacups and saucers.  Don't tell Dad but she also took a shine to a lovely yew cabinet which cost substantially more than the teacups.  "&son" was unimpressed that we were going to look at antiques until I said it wa slike going to a museum where you could buy stuff.  He was a bit obsessed with the militaria but his favourite item was a cobblers last.
