Happy Mother's Day

A good morning to everyone out there and to all the mums I hope you enjoyed your day yesterday. I had a lovely day starting off with the wonderful handmade gift that my second youngest son presented to me which he had made at school. It was a fantastic shoe magnet which he had decorated which is now on my fridge. He had also bought me a beautiful pendant from his school's mother's day stall (I think he may have had some help from my lovely friend Rob who was helping with the stall!!).

I then received a beautiful handmade card which had some money enclosed (which will definitely go towards new stamps!!) from my lovely daughter together with a bunch of flowers.

The rest of the day was followed by a wonderful BBQ cooked by my eldest son which we enjoyed with some friends. All in all a very nice day. Quite relaxing.

Here are the flowers and card that I received:-

Emily then made her card using the colours of the flowers and this is her beautiful card:-

Emily chose Old Olive for the base card then layered a piece of DSP. She then used a piece of Lovely Lilac followed by Tangerine Tango. You can't see it too well but she had used the Polka Dot background on the white cardstock. The flowers are then stamped with Pumpkin Pie, Pink Passion, Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant. The leaves are stamped with Old Olive. The flowers were then finished off with some brads. (Sorry for the not too good pic!).

Wow!! It sounds like you had a lovely mothers day and got spoilt rotton too - thats awesome!!

Emily is such a great little cardmaker - her card is just wonderful AND it kinda matches the bouquet of flowers she gave you to - did you notice that!

See ya Saturday!
