Happy Mothers Day

Hi Folks
The weekend has arrived and in the UK it is a bank holiday on Monday too.  Not that it makes much difference to me as I don't work Mondays anyway lol.  But it will be nice to spend time with family.  Our daughter rang us from Magalluf tonight.  She is enjoying herself and has settled down and already got herself a job for the summer.  Not bad considering she only went on Monday.  I know she will have the time of her life but will look forward to her coming home in August.

Todays card share is a simple Mothers Day card.

The image and papers came from an issue of Creative Cardmaking.  I added a doily behind the image and then edged the image with pearls.  I punched some little corners and a butterfly to add to the bow.  The final touch was a sentiment (done on the computer) and some liquid pearls added to the backing paper.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I apologise in advance if I am not about much this weekend.  We are going to stay at my Sister's today and won't be home until Monday.  Will be nice to spend a family weekend and see my two nephews.

This is such a pretty card, Mags. I know how you're feeling about your daughter....my son went to work in Magalluf for the summer when he was at Uni, 12 years ago....had a fab time, but I worried about him for the whole time. xx

Vilket vackert kort till Morsdag. Tulpanerna och färgerna till sammans med pärlor och andra fina detaljer gör kortet till en vacker helhet.Det påminner om våren och dess känslighet
Min engelska är knapphändig så jag skriver på svenska.
