Mother's Day

It's that time of year-in the UK it is any way!! Mother's Day on 30th March.
So, I have been making some cards for the occasion for those of you with mothers around to buy for.
My first offering is a cutey one, designed to look simple and ideal for a younger child to give (there's a button on there!! Using buttons always makes me feel like a kid!!).

I used a 6x6 cream coloured card blank then attached backing papers by Dovecraft from the Back to Basics range.  Rather than just have one design, I cut two of the same colour scheme in half and used them both!  A piece of white ribbon across the middle covers any join and looks nice :)
The flowers are all made of paper and can be purchased (at the bargain price of 3 packs for £1) from Donna's Kraft Kabin in Rhyl.  The lil' bear is a Fizzy Moon stamp-I use him a lot as I find this stamp to be so versatile.  Stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloured with Promarkers.

The sentiment I just wrote and printed from my laptop ( my printer can usually cope with just black!!) and cut out using Spellbinders' Distressed edges. I used the next size up die for cutting the glitter paper and voila! a card :) Pearls are from my stash-I have quite the stash of charms and gems!! (as I am sure you all do if you're honest!!)
So, that's it, my first Mother's Day card.
Thanks for stopping by, let me know what you think-your comments are really appreciated.
Have a good day, and Happy crafting xx
