The Greatest Gift of All

I am sure you will agree that our families are the greatest gift of all.

We don't really tell them often enough so sometimes the days like Mothers Day, Fathers day and Birthdays are a little prompt to remind us.
And as Mother's Day is only a few weeks away here is my card for my Mum to let her know how much she is loved:


I love the colours in this, they are so full of hope for the Summer. I have just picked my home grown daffodils today for the very first time and they are sat proudly on my coffee table so this yellow is just perfect match to the flowers.......yes I always put my cards up on my mantle piece so I can see if after a day or so I am still happy with them or they need a bit of tweaking!!

These colours were chosen from the combo this week at colourq. I have embossed the 'daffodil' yellow background card and the 'lucky lemonade' card used to make the flower. I will enter it into the embossing challenge at Stamp and Doodle. This is a fabric ribbon with gorgeous stitching-hard to see from the photo but the stitching is brown, green and yellow.
I wanted to use a simple layout as I felt the sentiment should be the main focus and the sketch at Skipping Stones fitted perfectly.

The sentiment is from Create at TLC.-this is a great site-check it out.

I hope you are enjoying the first day of March.
