A fabulously floral Mother’s Day …

I received some beautiful flowers for Mother’s Day … 

They are gorgeous and I’m sure my photos don’t do them justice – they are stunning in real life, and the colours are amazing – I feel totally spoiled.

In cake class this week, we made a floral plaque …

And I made some Mother’s Day cards for my friends using the fresh vintage sale-a-bration stamp set …

a pink and a blue …

 

I stamped the same design I’d used on my gift bags here.  

I liked the way the blue one turned out so much that I made a smaller, A6 size version for a birthday card we made at Velda’s craft evening this week too…

I love the effect of the two tone colours on the main image.

Bashful blue and marina mist colours go so well together.

I took flowers to the garden of remembrance for my own mum this weekend – St Patrick’s Day will always remind me of her.    

Thanks for dropping by today

  1. What a very talented lady you are Gill – the floral plaque and the cards are lovely! I’m glad you enjoyed mothers day and know you must have been delighted with your beautiful flowers. It’s good to remember the mums that are no longer with us too. Vicky x
