Happy Mothers' Day!

If you're a UK Mum I hope you've had a lovely day.  Last minute as usual I was making Mothers' Day cards this morning - one for my Mum, one for Malc's Mum.  Fortunately they both like fairies so I kept the gorgeous 'Once Upon a Springtime' Graphic 45 paper out for both of them!  Can't wait to get my hands on some more of this collection :)

I couldn't believe how close that date was on the postmark (except for the year of course!).  I don't remember Mothers' Day being so late before - it usually falls between mine and my Mum's birthdays, the 23rd and the 12th of  March.  What I didn't know was that Mothers' Day is always on the fourth Sunday of Lent (I knew it was related to Easter somehow but didn't know the specifics!!).

Whilst I was in card making mood, I made some little cards for the bookstall at church.  

I do love that hydrangea punch! :)


  1. Happy Mother's Day to you my friend...Paul has been ringing his mum most of the day, but to no avail : ( Hope you enjoyed the day and hope the cards were enjoyed by all! xx

  2. WOW! These cards are super pretty--and that last card is my fav--esp. with that punch! BEAUTIFUL!

    Happy Mother's Day to you!! Hope you are being treated like the queen and that you got lots of rest and relaxation!! BLESSINGS:) Love you!!!

  3. These are sooo pretty..I too love that border punch, I need one !!
    Congratulations!! on the new job, (don't know how I missed your post) you will be fantastic! So glad you're still coming to the Cubby Hole.

  4. Yup, I'm lovin' that hydrangea punch too, but seeing as I don't actually own that yet, I now have a need to go to the craft store! Love your cards, and that patterned paper. Happy Mother's Day!


Thanks for leaving a comment; it makes my day!!
