A Krafty Affair

Hello everyone, happy Mother's Day to you all.
This is a post for the second kit we was given at Sir Stampalot challenge blog, the card above is what I came up with. The kit was a little too dark for my normal style, so I decided to go vintage. Below is what I recieved in my kit to use.

A Krafty Affair - DP is My Minds Eye Kraft Funday, hinges TH cut on Coredinations, WRM cord, gems and button all available from Sir Stampalot (seam binding is from Pretty Little Ribbons)
I love Sarah kay and she seems to fit these papers well. I have never used this Kraft card before, but it's double sided, so that helps too. Now I would like to tell you that there will be something special happening for our next challenge, but to put you on, you can still enter this months challenge, we are only half way through.

I hope you all have a nice relaxing day, and have had some lovely goodies for Mother's day and most of all some love and hugs from your children, I sure did.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
1. Simon Says Stamp & Show - Anything Goes
2. Craft Room Challenge - Vintage
3. Creative Card Crew - #6 - Vintage
4. Cute Card Thursday - challenge 208 - Happy Birthday
5. MAWTT - challenge 140 - Special Lady (this went to a special friend)
6. One Stop Craft - challenge # 174 - Handmade flowers
7. Stamptacular Sunday - challenge # 155 - Cute as a button (I used one big button)

Now before I go I would like to play the "Proud Mum" part, My youngest son Bobby (6 yrs old) goes to football twice a week at our local Boys Club, and on Wednesday he won "Man Of The Match", he played really well and got a trophy to bring home for a week. Awww his little face lit up when he got it, he was just bursting with pride. And so was me and his Dad, now his Dad is a loyal Leeds United Supporter and when Bobby expressed his interest in playing football in September it made my Hubby's day, you see my eldest Son isn't into sports, he's more technical and into gaming and such. Sorry he didn't have his Leeds kit on as it was way too cold.

Thanks for popping by.
Happy crafting
