Mother’s Day

We have a quiet and relaxed Mother’s Day this year. 

 

As  Mum is on crutches still after breaking her ankle and my Daughter had a soccer game at midday the morning was very quiet.  The Autumn weather was warm in the sun so it was lovely to sit and watch Charlize’s game.

 

We then went and had coffee and later a lovely dinner together.

 

I hope that all the Mother’s everywhere have also had a lovely day!!

 

I just wanted to share with you my card I made for Mum, quite simple and I just adore the sentiment.  The stamp set is a retired stamp set called Blessed Mother and the sentiment was punched out using the Decorative Label punch.

 

The larger butterflies were punched out using the Elegant Butterfly punch and then I layered some smaller butterflies which had been die cut and embossed using the Beautiful Wings Embosslits die.

 

Here is my card:

The splatter is from the one of the stamps from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and has been stamped in Chocolate Chip and retired Regal Rose ink.  This set is great for creating male cards too.

 

The last touch a little bling on the butterflies!.
