For You Mum


Happy Monday my friends.  We had a gorgeous weekend to celebrate mother's day here.  Pat's mom was out and about with Pat's brothers so we had my mum over for dinner.  Earlier in the day, my mum and I snuck in manicures and pedicures. The perfect way to spend the day after being woken up with bed in breakfast from Pat and the boys.  My mum reads my blog each day so I'm sharing her card the day today instead of yesterday.  I love all the fun ways you could use the current CAS(E) this Sketch.  I had fun with my Avery Elle floral stamps and my CAS-ual Fridays sentiment. Love having a mum stamp for my mum!  Love you tons Mum!

How nice to be able to share girl time with your mum! It's so sweet that you call her mum...my youngest often calls me "Mumsie"...it cracks me up. Your card for her is beautiful. I'm a big fan of the way you use flowers. The little scalloped edges on the tags is sweet too. Bev

Jasleen said...

This is gorgeous. I love the idea of two overlapping tags. And those flowers are just amazing.

Michelle said...

It's so nice that your Mum reads your blog every day! I think I'm a little envious (my Mum doesn't read mine at all). This is a beautiful card, Lynn! Manicures and pedicures with your Mum for Mothers Day sounds perfect! :-)

Laura B. said...

Such a sweet card for your mum! I love that she reads your blog everyday and that you got manicures and pedicures together on Mother's Day! Sounds like the perfect day!
