Mother's Day Celebrations and Sweet Soiree Designer Series Paper SBTD May

Where did May go? I would have to say it has so far been the busiest month this year all round! Welcome to the May Stampers By The Dozen Blog Hop so glad you could join us for this celebration of Mother's or Father's Day.

Mother's Day - the second Sunday in May in Australia saw me working a 12 hour shift at the hospital, then home for dinner and a very quickly sound asleep in front of the Telly.

These were the cards I made - I cut up a whole packet of the Sweet Soiree DSP all at 10 x 14.4cm which netted me 72 card fronts with a few bits off the side left over. I took out the spotty piece for another project that you will see HERE so I was left with 60 fronts. Last year I made 60 cards and we didn't use them all so I decided 40 would be a great number.
I did not envisage the population explosion that we were in for that weekend - I ran out this year!

It was lovely to come home to this little gem from my oldest - she raided my stash on day whilst I was sleeping of a night shift. She fussy cut the banner since she couldn't find the framelits lol.

I hope all the mums out there has a great Mother's Day. Now lets hop on over to Tashana to see what she has created for our hop.
