Sweet Stampin' - Spring Flowers

It's a big couple of weeks coming up for me as I've two special fellas who have birthdays in May. My little one is soon to turn 5 and I just can't quite believe how fast these past five years have gone. I so am going to be crying in my coffee when I take him to school on his first day. He has his second visit this Tuesday and was fine on his first, so I don't anticipate any issues there. It will all be mama issues! Speaking of mama issues, it's Mother's Day here tomorrow and my two littlies ran off with papa today on a very hush hush covert mission, so I'm rather looking forward to tomorrow morning! In the meantime, I thought I'd share a card I made for my mummy.


We are celebrating Spring Flowers at Sweet Stampin' this week and I made an easel card for Mother's Day for my mummy. Purple is her favourite colour, so I went all out on the purple hues and used a lovely purple organza ribbon to tie up the design. The beautiful image is Mother's Day, Daughter by Saturated Canary. I love this image of Krista's. It was really fun to colour.


I found a fabulous Etsy site some years back which made these gorgeous handmade buttons and fitting in with my purple theme and being heart shaped, I thought this button worked really well to be the anchor for my easel. I used a lovely sentiment which I picked up from the Ally Pally Craft Fair years ago. So appropriate for a celebration of family and motherhood. 


Do stop by the Sweet Stampin' blog and check out what my wonderful teamies have been up to. They're such an inspiring and talented bunch. Join in our 'Spring Flowers' challenge too. It's such a lovely theme and we have a wonderful sponsor - Crafts U Love. We're looking forward to coming and visiting your Spring themed creations. See you all soon. Hugs, Wends x

How lovely this is Wends! Sweet image, so beautifully coloured, fabulous design and colours, gorgeous button and bow!
It is hard to accept that your little one is starting school- I remember it well, even though my little one is 31 now and a daddy himself!( He's still my little boy though!)
