Happy (UK) Mother's Day + Card Patterns #7

Today the UK celebrates Mother's Day. We decided not to celebrate it today, as my mum will be with us when it's Mother's Day in the rest of the world and we thought it would be better to celebrate it then. Even so, David did get me a beautiful bunch a flowers, which were delivered yesterday.


Also, the kids each made a Mother's Day card for me. Ruben and Renee made one and school and Rebecca made one yesterday at home:

This is Rebecca's beautiful card: 



Ruben did some very creative quilling: 



And Renee made this gorgeous creation:



Besides us not celebrating Mother's Day for me, it is of course also Mother's Day for David's mum. I came across a cute little project a few months ago on Kaisercraft's website. It's quick, simple and easy, which was just what I was looking for. The star book can hold 6 pictures of 2.5"x4.5". Over the past couple of days I've been taking new photographs of the kids, added my favourite to the book and the other three frames were for them to fill with their own art. Here's how it ended up:






















This morning I ended up making a card, matching the mini star book along Card Patterns #7 sketch.



Supplies: Bazzill Basics Cardstock white | Basic Grey patterned paper + die cut + alpha stickers Porcelain | Making Memories velvet trim | Kaisercraft Pearls | Spellbinder Nestbilities scalloped oval + circle.

Instead of a bouquet of flowers I choose to buy something different this time for my MIL:



I got this heart wreath here


This afternoon we went to visit her, and to give her her presents. I hope you all had a wonderful Sunday. Until next time.
