Happy Mother's Day & Colour Throwdown 191

Sooo, contrary to all evidence I have been crafting, just not very successfully. I have either forgotten to take photos before I have given the cards or they were just not very good. We have had a pretty busy couple of weeks with Ron's 30th birthday. Lot's of family and friends to catch up and celebrate with. It was also the opening weekend for Duckshooting season. Ron and Dad both headed away to the traditional haunt for the weekend leaving Mum and I among the duckshooting widows. We continued our tradition of a good meal out in town. Delish!!
Yesterday was Mother's Day here in NZ, my first as a Mum!! We had a nice quiet day at home with Grace, before hubby cooked dinner for us. A great evening catching up with my parents. During the day I took advantage of Grace's naptime and got some crafting done!!!

I used the Colour Throwdown 191 as my base for my first card. I loved the fresh colours and knew what I wanted to do. When it came to actually putting it together I struggled to put the colours together as I had envisaged. Overall I am happy with the result.

I loved the colours together so much I whipped up a quick card. To simplify the card I only used the Certainly Celery, Pool Party and Elegant Eggplant. I love the CAS elegance of the card.

In fact I loved the sketch so much I made this card for Mum. The colours are a close match to the wrapping paper on her gift. Just perfect, normally I can't use Coral but in this context I actually like it.

Finally a quick photo of Grace in her Jolly Jumper, now her favourite thing to do, all day everyday if we would let her.
