Flowers for Mum

Hello... So today it's Mothers Day here in the UK, so a very happy day to all the Mum's out there. On Tuesday there was a teacher strike here so we had my nephew 'L' for the day, as well as playing Lego and watching a Movie 'Jack the Giant Slayer'. 

We also did a bit of card making, I found some supplies in the Summerhouse and 'L' set about making a Mothers day card.

With paper flowers and buttons he made some blooms for the card

While I added a contrast border and some ribbon to the bottom of the card. Then using glue dots (I do love a glue dot) 'L' stuck the flowers, buttons and 'With Love' message to the card.


I think he did a great job and I'm sure my sister will be thrilled with it, plus it's so much nicer to get a hand crafted card.

Happy Crafting

Clare xx
