Mothers Day

I had two lovely cards from my children for Mothers Day, and some lovely presents a JS voucher and beautiful red orchid. Two favourite things, what more could a mum ask. However had to share this card made by my daughter, as there is a little story behind it, which I am sure fellow crafters will be able to relate to.

Dawn and I went to a DoCrafts Event at a local stationers on Saturday. We hadn't intended buying much, although we like to go along and support this particular shop.

However, we both fell in love with a couple of the Goody Bags one was a Forever Friends, and the other a Daisy and Dandelion one.

When we got home I sat and explored my two purchases, and fell in love with the images in the Forever Friends bag. I thought the above image would be perfect for Mothers Day, and wished that my mum was still alive so that I could put it on a card for her.

Imagine my delight, when I discovered Dawn had used the images for cards for me and her mother-in-law.

So I have a card to keep made with the image I loved. Note Dawn has also used some card candy - yes she loves these little embelishments as much as I do.

When she puts the cards on her own blog, I will add a link here later - so that you can see the other card she made.
Dawn has now put both cards she made on her blog - so here is the link: http://dawnywol.blogspot.com/
