I had a lovely day, and as you know if you read my previous post I was taken out to lunch by my eldest son, and partner and my hubby came too of course....and we were going to the 'wait and see' place. Well it was absolutely fabulous, the food was beautiful, the venue and service great and the company made it perfect....and so to put you all out of your misery we went to 'The General Tarleton' at Ferrensby, Knaresborough and I can highly recommend it for that special meal.
My Mothers day continued into today as I received a card and lovely chocolates in the post from my other son (and daughter -in -law) in London ...Royal Mail never seem able to deliver on time these days...they were posted Thursday! 1st class!...very much appreciated even so...we crafters need chocolate don't we!...so a very big hug and thank you to both my boys for making me feel very special.
OK enough rambling and on to my card that I made for my mum.
Here it is
I already had the Botanica papers also from Craftwork Cards and knew mum would appreciate the butterflies and the birds...not to mention the flowers...they are simply beautiful.
They are very easy to do and I really enjoyed doing it, the only bit that was a bit fiddly (for me anyway) was getting the flowers attached in the right place so that it all folds flat to go in an envelope. I don't think I would recommend letting Royal Mail get its hands on it though! I guess now I have done one the rest will be easier ...there are 10 in the pack...5 small and 5 large...this is a large one.
Some of the flowers were from the Botanica set and some were from my stash of Craftwork Cards stuff.
Mum was chuffed to bits with it, obviously never having seen anything like it before, and it being a bit different for me.
Right well that's just about it tonight, but I did forget in my previous posts to mention what a great day I had at Harrogate. I met up with old friends that I hadn't seen in over a year and new blogging friends too. Lots of hugging and kissing, chatting and tea!! and combined with a bit of crafty shopping ......perfect!!
Hope you all have a good week, take care,and thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to read my ramblings. If you have left me a comment you will have made me extra 'happy'...thank you.
