This week at Fantabulous Cricut, the challenge is "Flower Shower": Create a project using at least three flowers. I decided to create a Mother's Day card for my mum, which I will also link up at Cooking With Cricut (spring flowers), My Craft Spot (We love you Mum!), Whimsical Wednesday (spring has sprung) and My Sheri Crafts. I played around with attaching a tag or sentiment to the front of the card but finally decided to stamp the inside with a simple "Happy Mother's Day".
When I was first putting this card together, I didn't like the dark blue showing through each of the scalloped portions so I ended up punching circles using a Stampin' Up Itty Bitty punch using the scraps from the patterned paper. I then attached each little circle behind the openings and am much happier now!
My favourite flower is the daffodil, and I know my mum loves them too. The daffodils have finally bloomed in our gardens and it seems that spring is finally here! On Sunday, I know I will be spoiled by my husband and children, beginning with the traditional breakfast in bed. Later, we will celebrate Mother's Day at my mum's house with my mum, my oldest sister and her family and my oldest brother and his daughter, as well as my husband and children. The men always order Swiss Chalet so the women get to rest and enjoy the day! I'm looking forward to it!
