Hybrid digi-scrapping, Mothers Day and 2 up coming Give-aways

How are you all doing?

It has been a busy week here, lots going on.

First 2 digi-scrap items to share – in fact they are HYBRID – so they “really exist” and you can touch them.

I usually print by digi-scrap layouts out at 4 x 4 inches, and display them in small books. If I am framing them I print 8 x 8, and for some layouts I have created as part of my business JM Digital Designs they have been printed at 12 x 12 inches – which is so big it is quite scary!

When I create greetings cards I obviously print those out, and the first item to share today is a Mothers’ Day card for my mum. Yes – it is Mothers Day here on Sunday. Kit used Loving You by Gina from Weeds & Wildflowers, available at PrimaHyrbid.

I read two funny “Mummy” quotes this week.

“Definition of a sweater – a garment to clothing worn by a child when a mother feels chilly.”

“No matter how much a mother loves her child, she can always love them a little bit more when they are asleep”

My second digi item is a hybrid box. I created the sides and lid of the box using PhotoShop Elements and Breath of Fresh Air, a new kit by Gina at Weeds & Wildflowers. I then printed them out and used them to cover a cute lidded cardboard box I bought for £1.20 this week. I plan to use this idea for personalised gift boxes.

While on the subject of Weeds & Wildflowers, remember you have a chance to win a $10 gift certificate for the Weeds & Wildflowers store next week, as I am offering it as a prize as part of Ultimate Blog Party.

And….while on the subject of giveaways…(see the smooth transition on to my next topic!)…would you like to win this?

What is it? I hear you ask? Well it will be a prize I will be giving to one of my blog readers who visit my blog and leave a comment on St Patricks Day, 17 March 2008. I am not going to show you the whole prize yet, but will reveal more as we approach St Patricks Day.

My son Sam nipped his finger in the car seat buckle on the way home from playgroup this morning. I offered to kiss it better, knowing the amazing healing powers of a Mummy kiss, but he said “NO, don’t kiss my finger, I go to hospital and the doctors kiss it better”.

Finally, our church service will be broadcast on BBC Radio Ulster on Sunday Morning, at 10.15 am, and will be available to listen to online next week. So if you are not from these parts, and would like to hear how we speak and sing, tune in next week for more details.

See – SO many reasons to come back
