Happy Mother's Day

Good Morning Peeps

Yes!  I am burning a little of the midnight oil tonight as Hubby is working and he will not know what time I get into bed.  You guys won't tell on me.  Will you.  Will you? 

I wanted to firstly say "Happy Mothering Sunday" to both my Mum, Mum in Law and anyone who is a Mother, whether it be to a small pink "mini you" or of the animal variety.  As you know I am Mother to one mad dog, six lovely (mad) hens and one Cockeral. 

So I thought I would show you the Mother's Day card I have just made for my Mother in Law. The one I made for my Mum is on yesterday's post.

Now I am in no way being "tight" but I have made this card from Snippets but this was purely because I started wading through some papers and what I thought went well I knew were in my Snippets box (and floor) so why cut into a fresh sheet when you know you have it already cut? 

As you can see I also stamped the inside as well as the envelope.  I hope she likes it!  It was Hubby's idea that I make her a chicken card and just for a laugh I will take it over wearing my chicken wellies (see yesterday's post to see them for yourself!).  I will leave the pinnieon behind.  We are taking her for a bacon buttie at a local Garden Centre so wellies will not look out of place!! 

(Sorry about the quality of the photos peeps but the sun is in bed at the moment so no natural light at 1.30am!)

Right, off to make a nice Ovaltine and then I have an appointment with the Scrap 365 magazine which I bought yesterday for the first time.  The only reason it is the first copy I have bought is that the local W H Smiths only ever has 3 copies delivered so it is never in stock!!  When I have had a good rummage through this magazine I will decide whether or not to subscribe.  I already subscribe to Craft Stamper so will have to decide which I like more.

Good night/Morning guys.  Have a good Sunday whatever you are doing.  Weather report is that it is going to be wet here so crafting might be the order of the day as well as cooking a nice piece of baa lamb!!

Let's go and rattle the Playground gate one more time!! Why not join us at the Playground.  There are lots of swings, pogo sticks, roundabouts, a pond.  Go on. Get some Snippets, make a card or something and link up with the lovely Di - she with a flower in her hair.  You know you want to!!  Tag - you are it!

Nos da!

What a fun card! Intersting image for a mother's day card but I suppose a son would know what his mother would like. Love the colors and the envelop is so cute.
