It's Mother's Day today in the UK, so I hope all you Mums are spoilt rotten. Apparently the day actually relates to a religious festival when people went back to their "mother" church one Sunday in Lent, which was usually the one they were baptised at. As people travelled further for work they were given time off to do this and so were also able to see their families and so the two became linked. Information courtesy of my Mum!
As you've no doubt realised this is the card I made for Mum this year. I used the Stampendous bulid a bouquet set again. The glass jar actually says Hello on it but a carefully placed leaf hides the word nicely. The sentiment is from a lili of the valley set, I smudged it slightly when I stamped it as I stupidly stamped it after finishing the card. I tried different ways to cover it up, but they didn't look right so in the end I decided to just live with it. I added a few sequins that have a slight shaping to them to finish it off. Fortunately they were flat enough to go at standard postage rate as I'd intended to give the card to Mum as she was due to visit in Friday. Unfortunately my niece was poorly on Thursday so she ended up going over to York to look after her whilst her parents were at work. At least it meant Mum got to spend a bit more time with my sister in the evenings and this weekend. Have a lovely day x
