I've been looking forward to using this gorgeous tulip stamp from Papertrey's Friendship Jar Spring Fillers set and saved it for my Mum's Mothers Day card. Not a very original design but I think this lovely image looks good on its own. I've coloured the flowers to match my favourite dark and delicious garden tulips. Of course they aren't out yet but here they are in bloom last year.
Mum has started to enjoy a bit of simple embroidery recently so I've bought her this lovely old chocolate box containing a half finished embroidery project from long ago. I really love browsing the vintage sewing sections on ebay and have developed a bit of an obsession with old embroidery transfers lately. I've already amassed a small collection without even trying, so I really enjoyed Lucy's post here about her latest ebay obsession - and YES! it is so easy to get carried away! Makes me think what on earth I spent my money on before on-line auctions existed!
