Happy Mothers Day....in the UK anyway... to all those mums out there both new ones and ones that have been mums for a while. Hope today you are all being spoiled.
Here is the card I made for my dear mum....
It's an 8 inch card layered with the green and pink backing papers (from stash) and the image is from the Downton Abbey CD Rom. I am not a great CD crafter but have to say that my critic (hubby) said that the image looked completely different made up than just when I had printed it. I mounted it on some pale pink card and added a bit of gliiter to the flower centres.
The sentiment is again from stash (sorry don't know who's) as is the frame surrounding it. I stamped in sepia ink and coloured with a pink copic.
The trellis is from a die (a Spellbinders I think) BUT it is the wax paper that I used for release (waste not , want not) and I snipped it up (very technical) a bit, pearls and gems and done. Yes it sounds easy...but it actually took me a day and a half to make.........well perhaps 3/4 of that was thinking what to do!!!
I will find out if mum likes it later today.
So what are we all up to? A celebratory meal perhaps?, spending time with the family?, crafting?, time to yourself? or just a normal Sunday?
ME? I am awaiting a visit from my eldest son who lives fairly near...and the youngest one who is in London busy with Thomas, Nicole and her family from Australia paid me a surprise visit on Thursday when he was up in Yorkshire with business, and called in to say hi!...a lovely surprise!
Who needs a special day to celebrate mums?
I am off to see my mum this afternoon and then enjoy dinner cooked by hubby!(he is proof reading this so he now knows he is doing dinner) :)
Whatever you are doing...enjoy and thank you so much for giving of your precious time to stop by my blog and say hello! I love my blogging buddies!
