Mother's Day

I have been very lax in blogging this week, and my blog is very neglected. I also noticed that my SBS sisters links have been stolen by blogger along with my blogs I visit! I will have to do a bit of detective and repair work!

Today here in the UK is Mother's Day. Lots of people dismiss this day, as a commercial institution, but I think it is right for us to celebrate our mothers, and grandmothers. For me, it is a day where I indulge myself, and hopefully get dinner cooked for me??? mmmm don't think either of my men will be cooking for me! So I am afraid I will starve or be forced to ask them to take me out or have a takeaway in!!! My indulgence will be sitting reading my book or newspaper or just crafting! Or an indulgence I love, doing absolutely nothing on the sofa!!!
This is a card I made my mother, who I saw yesterday . Love you Mum!
I made it very quickly , and used thickers for the letters, and added our very thin sticky backed metal to them. I then alcohol inked them and sanded. The paper is one of my favourites from K & Co. The flowers are Primas, with added beads glued down with glossy Accents.

Happy Mothers Day to all who are mothers, and to all who are not, take a day, indulge yourselves, put your feet up, and do absolutely nothing!

What a stunning card - and how wonderful to have a mum to spoil, I am sure that she adored it.

Enjoy your Sunday, enjoy being spoiled, and luxuriated in just doing what you want when you want.

Have a great day

Hi Jennie,
What a beautiful creation! I hope you have a wonderful day. I've given my kids a list of easy to make buffet food - so fingers crossed!
