I Love You Mum

Sunday, 10 March 2013
I hope you've all had a lovely Mother's Day.  Jon and I took my mum and dad out for a Mothering Sunday lunch which was very nice.  We also had flowers for both mum's. 

I made cards for both mum's too and I'm showcasing the card I made for my mother-in-law.  I let Jon choose the image and he chose one of my favourite Penny Black cat stamps.  I can for the life of me remember the name of these papers as I've bought it a number of years ago and never used it.  I wanted to use really bright colours.  The banner die-cut is from La La Land.  I don't actually have this die yet, but Tracy from Dies To Die For very kindly included this in my last order.  It is on my wishlist!

It's probably not a traditional looking Mother's Day card, but Jon loved it, as did his mum and that's all that counts.

Thank you for the comments on my last card.  I didn't get a chance to blog hop then but have it planned for this evening.  I will back very soon to show the card I made for my mum.  In the meantime, I'm excitedly awaiting the arrival of Twilight Breaking Dawn Pt 2 so I can finally see how the saga ends.  I love the books and films and was unable to go to the cinema, so this has been a very long wait! 

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch
In the Pink - Floral/Mothers Day

Thank you for stopping by and for any comments you may leave, they are greatly appreciated.
