Happy Mothers Day


Happy Mothers Day, this is the card I am giving to my mother. The image is from Joana Sheen's CD The Royal Horticultural Society CD Collection
She likes orchids and I thought she would like this image. I have backed the card with matching paper from the Cd, placed it on two silver pieces of card and put a pale pink ribbon and bow down the side, finished off with silver peel offs.

I had a big surprise on Thursday night, we went over to Gary's (Vernon's step son although we do use the word step, hes a son to us and they treat us as parents) for tea, I was given a gorgeous Mothers Day card and a Pink Gerbera Plant, with the most lovely message inside, I had a few tears well up, I was not expecting anything from them, it was a lovely surprise.
It was also nice to Bethany our grand daughter, we spent ages talking about Tatting, she really taken to it and I think we have a tatter for the future, she already designing bits as she learns.
Have a lovely day, and until we meet again Take care

  5. Gorgeous card! I bet your mother will love it.

    As someone who is also a step but never has to hear that word, I can't tell you how wonderful it is. I got a bonus dad (and grandparents, aunt, uncle and a wonderful brother and sister) out of the marriage and I couln't be happier, there's no "step" here either because they are my family. You are a gem!

  6. This is gorgeous Margaret well done I love it, nice that you were able to have a lovely time with Bethany and your son and his wife , how lovely that he sees you as mum .
    hugs Elaine
