Quotes from mother!

I was inspired to make this by the Lunagirl Moonbeams Challenge.  I wasn't sure if I was going to make it in time for the challenge as I've been busy packing up boxes for a house move! When I came across these atc papers in my stash I thought they would be perfect for the challenge.  The two quotes are something that my mum used to say (in fact I think she still sometimes does) my sister, not me obviously as I am, and always was, an absolutely angel and wouldn't dream of picking on my sister!

  • Black pattern card from stash, originally used as packaging
  • Docrafts Papermania Happy Days 6 x 6" design stack, distress with Hougie distress tool
  • Creata metallic card and Typewriter stamps
  • Anna Marie Designs black card stock
  • Quotes by Mom ATC Collection art papers
  • Ribbon and bling from stash
  • Noor! Design Back In Time dies
  • Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink
The quotes say "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." and "Leave your sister alone!"
I would like to enter this into the following challenge(s);

Creative Blessings. x
