Happy Mother's Day (again :)!)

Good morning, now that Mother's Day has passed, I can pop in and share my mum's Mother's Day card!  She is a regular blog reader so I couldn't post it earlier.  I'm entering my card for my mum and for my mother-in-law in this week's Wee Memories Challenge

My first card is using paper and embellishments from the Crate Paper Restoration Collection.  This is one of my all time favorite packs of paper and it is just about all used up.  It was perfect that it came with a teapot chipboard sticker as my mum loves her tea!  She starts her day with a cup of tea and has many cups throughout the day. 

My dear mother-in-law's card is using some of the My Mind's Eye So Sophie papers and embellishments.  Love the soft traditional color tones in this.  Blue is one of her favorite colors too, so I added a touch of blue Bazzill ribbon.

Hope you enjoy the cards today!  I'm off to work...and then at lunch leave for jury duty!  Fun...!

  2. I didn't care for my jury duty stint to much, I hope yours goes so much better! How neat that your mother reads your blogs and gets to see your fine creations every day! These cards are both so pretty in their patterned paper glory. You do patterned paper so well!
