Mum...


Good morning everyone are you all having a good week?...well the sunshine has gone, see I knew I shouldn't have jinxed it by talking about it, I made it run and hide lol...oh well March is just around the corner so hopefully spring is to...I don't usually make Mothers Day cards because it reminds me too much of my Mum...every single day I miss her and whenever anything good or bad happens she is still the first person I think to ring...even though I cant, I even talk to her all the time...how precious are our Mums we should cherish them every single day they are with us, sometimes life gets in the way and we don't tell the people we love how much they mean to us...so if your lucky enough to still have your Mum ring her or better still go see her and give her a hug...don't wait for Mother's Day because you never know how long the people we care for the most will be with us...ooooohhhh that sounds kinda sad but it isn't meant that way honestly...right now enough waffling onto my card for today, which surprise surprise is a Mothers Day card...now you would never have guessed that would you lol...the amazingly cute and gorgeous image is of course from Mo's Digital Pencil, Mo certainly has a way with faces doesn't she, look at the concentration on this little fellas face...he is called What To Draw and the paper is blank so you can add what you want to it, I used wordart to add the Mum...hes coloured with my usual distress inks and teamed him up with these lush papers from the My Mind's Eye - Oliver 6x6 Pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the colours are brilliant for him don't you think?...I finished with some gorgeous narrow satin ribbon and bow and a couple of buttons...the fab sketch is from the Sketch Saturday Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and the Inky Chicks Challenge too...I'm off out today to a Doctors appointment...yuck I hate going to the Doctors, in fact I hate it more than the dentists...but it will give me an excuse for a quick mooch in town too so hey ho...whatever your up to today I hope you have a brilliant one

Love this one too. I like the way you fussy cut the paper out. Created so much interest.

You are so right about your Mom. My Mom is completely bedridden and lives in my home. I cherish this time we have had together. I have been so lucky to have her here with me.
