Happy Mother's Day

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well and dry!  It is raining here ~ so Dog towels on duty again.

Well, all my Motheris Day cards have been posted today (those that need to be posted that is), most people only have one to contend with I have four ~ don't ask!!  All will be revealed over the next few days.

So, today I am sharing the card I made for my actual Mum ~ she doesn't 'do' computers so I know there is no chance of her seeing it before the day.


A funny story ~ when I first started making cards I made a card for my Mum, I can't remember if it was a Birthday card or a Mother's day card, but I had put a lot of effort into it ~ as you do.  On speaking to her all she could say was "You could have put the word 'Mum' on it"......  what can I say?  So, ever since then I have gone overboard with the 'Mum' bit on her cards and this one is no exception!

CARD RECIPE

Image: Fizzy Moon ~ 'With Love'
Colouring Medium: Copics
Papers: First Edition ~ 'Isabelle'
Cardstock: Pearlescent card stock from my stash
Dies: CC Designs ~ 'Mini Banner', Go Kreate ~ 'Vegas Compact Alphabet'

Gorgeous card Bev,I love Fizzy Moon must ink mine up again,just need the time...Lovely colours and colouring... Thank you for your lovely comment,to answer your question,no the green twirly bits on my card don't come from Mulberry Crafts they are the stems of the flowers cut off and then twisted round a pokey tool to curl them,so the waste bits really...Hope that helps...

LOL Leave it to those Mum's to set us straight. :-) I think your card is just lovely and I was already thinking how much I liked the banner before I read your post.
Thank you so much for your kind words on the loss of my furbaby Bev. I see by that sweet face on your blog header that you are a dog lover too. :-) Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. Hugs!
