For You

Although I don't have a Mother anymore I will be making two cards for Mothers day - one for my OH Mother and one for my friend and neighbour. This is the one for the latter, it may seem strange but she really does look after me and so on Mother's day I always make her a card and give her a little present. So the card doesn't exactly look Mumsy!

Was a bit stuck for inspiration until I saw the sketch at Mojo Monday and it fitted perfectly with the stamp (from ebay) I had already picked out and the DCWV retro square paper.

It also fits two Mothers day challenges Quixotic challenges and Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.

Hi Linby,
this is a great card for the circumstances. It's nice to have someone who can be like a second mother and I'll bet she really appreciates your thoughtfulness.

Hi Linby
lovely card very retro looking, great colours, and lovely layout, I know what you mean I have to have a layout now or I sit and look at a blank card.
