My card to my mum on mothers day

While surffing the net i came across Elains fab blog she makes fantastic exploding boxes. Well I followed the tutorial she has on her gallery blog and this is what i made for my mum for mothers day (I also made one for my darling hubbies mum).
Why is it men are hopeless when it comes to remembering special occassions. I ordered my mum a lovely boquet of freshias from Geurnsey. they arrived on saturday. unfortunatly my mum wont get this card until tomorrow (but she got the flowers) Now DH hadnt even thought about mothers day until my mum rang to say thank you. Oh well my son also takes after his dad because i didnt get anything off him and when i asked very nicely for a cuppa i then had to wait 2 hours. Karla is let off the hook as she is away at school and we normally do something when she comes home (which is next friday) Hope you like the card with a difference............... Made with..... textured black cardstock. gold mirriboard. Basic grey PP (scraps) Basic Grey swirlly stamp, stickles. silver Wire, Red ribbon. Lamminating pouches cut into thin strips
Stamp... Bought from redicut a couple of years ago its by Anna Griffin.

Had a look at the real thing and it is really good and any Mum would be proud to receive it. Your Chris should have treated you really special on mothers day, especially as you got up at 3am to fetch him back from a night out the other saturday - they have such short memories!!

WOW! Your exploding box is stunning Tracey and I can see all the work and love that went into making it. I'm sure your Mum adores it and will treasure it! What are the men like LOL, it's a different story if you forget their special day but then we never do! Thanks for joining the BG challenge this week. Chris x
