Mother's Day

Don't you just looove Mother's Day.   I made a card for my mum and mil  (same) for mother's day.

The card was made using the following.

Paper.     Chocolate Chip , Papermania  Capsule Collection Heather Paper Pack.
Lace        Lace purchased from local craft store
Flowers   Local Craft Store
Brooch    This is actually an earring that I purchased from a second hand store.
Image       I have this in a vintage image folder. I am sorry I don't from where. It was from one of the vintage image sites. I usually like to link to that site.

My son and daughter actually used their own money for the first time to each buy me a mother's day present. My son bought me a box of choccies and a magazine. I opened the card from my son to find two five dollars notes stuck to the inside.  A little message on the card said "This is to put towards the caravan"  We have just recently purchased a van and had been talking about tightening the budget.  It's the little things like these that remind me about the joy of being a mum.  My son then proceeded to tell me how much everything was.  (I had a little giggle to myself) 

We travelled down to my mil's place for the weekend. They live on an island and to get there we catch a ferry. On one trip to the other side the ferry driver presented all mother's with a lovely long stem rose. A very nice gesture. I will be posting to A Rosy Note blog for her Photo Feature Friday. Her theme  this week is Spring. We are in Autumn here. The colour of the rose is a nice autumn tone.
