Mother's Day

Not a bad day here , weather wise , I went to work this morning ,then after lunch cut the grass at the front and did a bit of snipping and general tiding . I did hear on a weather report we might be getting some snow mad is the UK weather!
I've made an early start with my Mother's Day cards . I tried to make it simple , pretty and classy . The card it's self starts off pretty , it's a pre lazer cut card from Hobby craft , they come in packs of 10, I always have some in for special card makes. The bp is boho chic by first edition ("12x"12). The sentiment is by pink petticoat , I love the font . I diecut the sentiment and bazil teal card with spellbinder oval dies , then stamped small butterflies in teal and red ink , then blended in some distress ink. I used a red silk ribbon from my stash threaded through a pearl buckle from wild orchid.
Inside is a printed sentiment from pink petticoat that reads,
Hope you have a special day, as perfect as they come . You deserve to have 'cos your a lovely Mum.
Nice verse I think not too slushy .

It's a beautiful card Jane. Pretty papers and the laser cut shape is lovely.
Was hoping the grass would dry enough for me to cut it too but it rained again from mid afternoon onwards (again). Don't think it I'll be able to walk on it without sinking in for a while yet.
