Mothers day card








Made this for my mum. It started life as a card, but somehow turned into a little book. I really enjoyed making it for her. She loves simple cards - so I think I achieved that! I hope that everyone had a lovely mothers day. Riley made me a beautiful card and a little painted clay pot at school for me - I was thrilled and he was just so pleased with his efforts. I will of course cherish it forever!!! He offered to do the washing up yesterday too, but the cutest thing of all was Poppi and Riley bringing me breakfast in bed, singing "Happy Birthday" how sweet is that, still in their own way they knew it was a special day for me, even if they did get a bit confused!!! I love them to bits!!!!!
Anyway, back to the card. I thought I would have a go at stamping the acetate cover and backing papers. Hope you like it.

Supplies are: Blooms and brads - Poppicrafts. Ribbon - Poppicrafts and Ribbon Oasis. Flourish stamps - Autumn Leaves

Sitting here open mouthed - how beautiful?????????
When I've written this I'm going straight back for a longer look. Wow!

Thanks for taking the time to look and comment on my little "freebie" -satisfying to know that my supplier approves!

I am looking forward to seeing what the physio manages to make with the loop, ribbon, flower charm and brad.....

Absolutely mindblown! How did you do the lettering -the mum and the little texts? And are those the hydrangea blooms? What are they actually made of? Yes, I'm gearing up to place my order soon -the trouble is I want a dozen of everything! LOL!!!

The stamping on the acetate really pulls together an element of Victoriana and 21st century for me -it works BIG time.
