Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all. I hope your day was wonderful, surrounded by those you love. We so lucked out with weather today, it could not have been more perfect.

This is the card I made for my Mum last night. ..One day I'll get my self organised and won't be making cards late into the night, the night day! The card actually started with the pile of beautifully coloured beads I wanted to use (given to me by the lovely Jann) and I co ordinated the card to match them, with some of my favourite stamps and accessories. The background stamp is French Filigree stamped in a mix of Crumb Cake, Expresso and Perfect Plum.

I used just the tiniest of the Victoria Chrochet Trim peeking out from the sides. I love how thin this lace is that allows me to do this. This was the lace featured in the last mini and is still available, along with the pinking hearts border punch. Oh I adore the detail this punch provides!

And because this card was for mum, I even stamped and decorated the inside.
Have a great day.
