Happy Mother's Day!

Well, it was a cold and blustery Mother's Day here in Canberra, but that didn't matter.  I was woken up early (thanks Jess) and had presents and a cuppa in bed. Eventually I dragged myself out of bed and sat with my family, just being not doing!!

Today we spent Mother's Day on the High Tea train ride from Canberra to Bungendore.  The kids had a great time on the train making new friends, we were served delicious food from friendly staff and we had a lovely little explore of Bungendore before the rain came and we headed back home.  The kids were exhausted (me too) but we loved it!!

My project today is a little Mother's Day gift box that I will have to keep until my own mum arrives in Australia. I sent her a card (I hope it made it safely to Holland mum) but kept her presents here as she's due back for a visit soon!!

I dug into my stash of papers and found this gorgeous set of papers from last year's range.  It was perfect for this project.  I decorated the watering can with butterflies and flowers, as well as some flower and butterfly picks.  I wanted to use contransting colours too, just to give some interest and so it wouldn't be too much!!

 This project truly is gorgeous and the tutorial and template can be found at the wonderful resource website of SplitcoastStampers.  Links to follow:

I used my favourite punch - blossom of course and used the stamp from Mixed Bunch as the flower centre.  Paper flower, bling and punched/die cut butterflies and the watering can gift box was done.  It was an incredibly clever but simple idea.  Love it!!

So Happy Mother's Day to all the mums and especially to my mum.  Hope you have a lovely day xx
