Happy Mother's Day!

Just a quick post to show the card I made for my own mother on Mother's Day. I can't take any credit for the design as I got the idea for this from my lovely SU demonstrator Michelle Last. She had this flowerpot card as one of the projects when I was part of her Hostess Club last autumn and she has just showcased it on her blog for Mother's Day (please see the post about it and take the opportunity to look at her fabulous card and leave a comment for the chance to win some gorgeous blog candy!). I did change the colours and use my own "style" of flowers. I have to say the card took ages until I got the colours just right - bit of a perfectionist!

Card Recipe
: Impression Obsession Happy Mother's Day greeting
Cardstock: PTI Kraft, PTI Plum Pudding, PTI Ripe Avocado, SU Very Vanilla, SU Elegant Eggplant,
Ink: PTI Fresh Snow, PTI Plum Pudding, Assorted Papermania & Tombow markers
Accessories/Tools: PTI Satin Plum Pudding ribbon, SU large oval punch, SU scallop oval punch, SU scallop edge punch, SU 5-petal flower punch, Cuttlebug Combo dove die, We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-dile, Stickles, SU stampin dimensionals

Hopefully the card tied in with the flowers I sent my mum. We had a lovely celebratory lunch at one of our favourite restaurants, The Plough at Bolnhurst.

Looking forward to the PTI release tonight and the new SU products coming up in the mini-occasions catalogue next month!

Hope you had a fabulous Mother's Day whether you are either a mother yourself or celebrating your own mother.

A la prochaine! AmitiƩs!
