Cheerful Daffodils for Mother's Day

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? I am a bit late posting today as I had an Open Reach engineer here most of the morning trying to sort out the problems with our internet. Hopefully it is working properly now only time will tell.

You know I like to get ahead with my cards. So today I made a Mother's Day card. They are fine to share as neither of our Mothers do Social Media of any kind.

The backing papers I had in my stash. 

This is a signature die. 

I cut the Spring Daffodil dies from Creative Expressions and I decided to put them in pots which I cut with Spellbinder dies. 

For the corners I used the Cottage Garden die that came with Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine last year. 

I had a lovely piece of news my blog (yes this one) was featured in the Sally's Ones to Watch section of the February issue on Making Cards Magazine. 

I hope you enjoy the rest of the week. Being the start of the month I will be back with two blog posts tomorrow. It does get busy in Blogland at the beginning of the month. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
