Just for Mum and a card for a Fisherman

Here are some cards Ive made over the last couple of days, for my mum and mum in law for Mothers Day, same card and design, just coloured slightly different. The tilda is sweet tilda and I coloured her with Promarkers.    The flowers Im really pleased with, they are made from scalloped nestie circles.  You cut between each scallop, then wet with a waterbrush on each side, then you scrunch them into a little ball and then layer.    I made the buttons by cutting circles with a punch, coloured them with promarkers and used my crop-o-dile to make the holes, then finished off with a ribbon.  
The papers are from a pad called the best of K&Company.   My friend Sara gave me quite a few sheets last time I went over.   Ribbons and lace are from my stash.  

I stamped ink randomly over cream card for the top and bottom bit, just to colour them.

Finally this is a quick card for a friend who is a keen fisherman.   Im sorry its not a very good picture, the light was a bit rubbish.    The image is coloured with promarkers and the papers from my stash.

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to look, your comments are really appreciated.
