Mother's Day Cards

Yesterday I had a really lovely day with my mate, we went shopping to Crawley and then went and had a lovely pub lunch at the King's Head in Bramber, West Sussex. The weather was beautiful, Spring is coming..

Now to my card or cards for today. I never look forward to mother's day as my dear Mum is no longer with us and I miss her very much. For a few years I haven't had to bother with Mother's day cards as my hubby and I were not talking to his parents (long story). However a couple of years ago his mum came back into the picture and although I do not get on with her I am polite when I see her (which isn't often as she lives in France). Anyway I had to make her a card so this is what I have done.
The card was made with one of the La Pashe Nice and Easel sheets which can be purchased here. I do like these sheets. I have made a twisted easel card (my first attempt at this) and really likes it. I have used coloured card from my stash and added some gems. The greeting is simple (no slushy words) and was computer generated. This I placed with foam pads. The flowers used were from my stash, I'm not sure where I got these from, probably from some craft show.
I really like the card.

My friend also liked the card alot and asked if I could make her two for her mum and mum in law. Again the decoupage was from La Pashe and the making of the cards is the same as my mother in laws one. The flowers used on these two were mulberry roses that I have had for years.

I now need to go make up some boxes so that I can send them and they don't crush.

Thanks for reading
