Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all you lovely mums out there.  I hope you are having a day of relaxation and pampering, or at the very least, you have had a cup of tea made for you!

Yesterday I went to my second Scrapbags scrapbooking crop.  I enjoyed it much more this time as I was better prepared, both with equipment and with layouts to make.  It was great to spend a day away from the hubbub and just quietly craft.

Here is the card I made for my Mum (I obviously have a thing for blue at the moment!). Most of the products I used are Stampin' Up.  I used the Fresh Vintage stamps from the Sale-a-bration offer, as well as Dots, Dots, Dots.  The ink colours are Pacifico Point and Baja Breeze.  The coloured card is Bazzill Basics and there are some gems from Mei Flowers.  The "Mum" sentiment is from a set of alphabet stamps by Marion Emberson (I think!).  I used a Fiskars punch to punch the scallop edging.  Hope she likes it.

I have had some lovely presents from my children, but am yet to have a cup of coffee made for me.  Oh well, I live in hope I guess!  I'm spoiling myself by drinking Prosecco and watching Pride an Prejudice.

Thanks for dropping by.  I love to hear your comments, they mean so much.  Have a good day.

  1. Prosecco and Pride and Prejudice - that's definitely the way to spend mother's day Michelle! I love your mum's card with those fresh blues and the flower looks great in the label. Vicky x
