Quick and easy Mother's Day card

Hiya Everyone,

As you all know I have been really busy so yesterday I made 2 quick and easy cards for my mum and the MIL for Mother's Day. This took me about 10 minutes to make but is simple and effective. The papers are a pink petticoat download called fanciful flowers that I attached to a papermania scalloped card blank and added clear diamantes to the centre of each of the flowers. I then printed and added a sentiment - font is saginaw. I always feel bad if I don't give a handmade card to those close to me as they do come to expect it don't they? I've had a lovely Mother's Day as I stayed at my mum and dads last night and then we went to visit the in-laws for a lovely dinner this afternoon. This Mother's day is even more special to me as it's my very first one. I received a handmade card, 2 pretty "mum" charms for my pandora bracelet and a years cardmaking magazine subscription of my choice.

Didn't I do well! :o)
