A Little Bird for Mother's Day

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How has your week started? I must admit that it was hard getting up this morning for work but it was okay when I got there. Lots of people were interested in our holiday and the news of our daughter's engagement.

Well life seems to have been a bit of a whirlwind at the moment. I looked at the calendar to check when Mother's Day falls  (Sunday 6th March)   I was rather shocked how close it is. Also we had a hotel booked when my husband had his accident and it seems we  have rearranged it to the weekend of Mother's Day. We are not going to be popular.

I have made this card for my mum she is not a girlie  type of person so I thought she would like this image of a cute bird with its nest. The image came from an older issue of Making Cards Magazine. 

This sentiment I found in my stash. I will write something a bit more gushing on the inside. 

I cut the image out with one of  Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares and I inked through the die before I removed the image. I think the gingham paper was from the same issue of Making Cards Magazine. The other papers were in my stash in fact amongst my snippets. 

This card is quite flat it is going to have to go through the post. We will have to see our mums on a different day. When we changed the hotel we had no idea that Mother's Day falls that weekend.  We can't change is again it was hard last time.

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
