Happy Mother's Day!


Today is Mother's Day here in the UK. A day to celebrate & show your Mother how much you love and appreciate all that they do and have done for you.  

Sadly my Mum is no longer with me & even though it's been 5 years since she passed away this day like many occasions is hard for me. I miss spoiling my Mum on this occasion, but I am lucky enough to get on well with my Mother In Law to be and so today we are treating her to lunch at our house. Sunday's are family days for us and we usually spend the afternoon at his Mam & Dad's having dinner & watching a movie. This week though it's our turn to host and for me to cook the dinner! 

Anyway, enough chit chat from me, how about a card...

This is the card I made for Karl to give to his Mam from us both. I stuck to my usual bright go to colour combo & used the Gerbera flower from Pure Florals: Gerbera which is perfect in these bright colours! This card is quite simple with just a bit of fussy cutting & masking to create the layered flowers.

Ok, I'd best be off to go start preparing the vegetables for dinner and put the chicken in to cook! I hope you all have a lovely day whether you are celebrating Mother's Day or it's just a normal Sunday. 

Be sure to stop on by the blog tomorrow for a Uniko Studio DT Blog Hop! We've a stamp set revisited hop planned for your enjoyment & there's a set up for grabs too!! Thanks for stopping by today :)
