Happy Mother's Day

A very happy mother's day to all the mums out there in the UK. Today I have my mum's card to show you and will be back tomorrow with my MIL's.

My mum's favourite flowers are freesias, she loves the colours and the scent, so I have been scouring the tinternet to try and find a stamp or digi image for years. Then Janey's Digi Designs appears and I left Jane a comment asking if she was going to be providing a freesia image and she not only replied but she made one too. I bought it immediately and I have been waiting patiently to show it to you ever since.

I am entering the snippet playground as no full sheets were harmed in the making of this card, the backing papers were also from all the baby boy cards I have been making and the hexagon plate meant a little went a long way.
