It's Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all you mums out there!
I've told my mum not to look at this blog post because this is the card that I have made for her! 
One of her favourite colours is teal so I went for a stark white background 
embossed with M-Bossabilities Garden Delight
the edge is cut with Classic Triple Scallop Edgeabilities® .  
I added the teal colour with the flower  - Anemone Flower Topper
Finished with stamped sentiment, tiny butterflies, ribbon and a couple of pins - voila! 

I think she will like it, we are off to my sister's home for a meal this evening, 
Bella comes along as she gets to see her 'cousin-dog' Harry!  Good job he's so tolerant! 
I'm back tomorrow and on my countdown to Arizona!!  It has come around so quickly,
I've purchased new luggage and a new handbag - yes I have a thing about bags..and cardigans..
and butterflies..and flowers ..and.. oh dear it appears I like quite a few things! 
Have a wonderful Sunday dear friends.

Beautiful card, even the embossing folder has butterflies - yah! Just love the teal too. You do have some lovely cardigans from what I have seen on TV. A girl has got to have lots of something (or two).

Hi Christine,
Firstly HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to you and all you followers that are mums too.
Your card is stunning and I think your mum must have been over the moon with it. A perfect card for an adored mother.
I love bags/luggage too, don't use it much now though. I hope you get to spoil yourself a little bit more for this trip, you deserve it so enjoy every moment of it.
Regards and best wishes Linda

Sandra said...

your mum is very lucky, the card is lovely, it had to have butterflies!
Hope your boys spoilt you today, and Bella of course.
Look forward to tomorrows inspiration!
Crafty hugs
Sandra xx
