Mothering Sunday

Today is Mothers Day in the UK and Grandmothers Day in France.  Although I'm working I'm hoping I can finish a bit early and join the family for lunch at our local craft centre cafe.  Our town is a bit short of places to eat on Sundays and although Cafe-R is bright and airy and the food is delicious, my Mum isn't that keen as its too modern for her and she says the seats are too hard!  So we must remember to take a cushion with us for her chair.

Mum has started doing a bit of embroidery over the last 12 months or so, so I thought I'd use my cross stitch alphabet stamps to make her card.  Very simple but I like how it turned out.  I had a real headache with the bucket of "spring flowers" though as my ancient printer decided to give up the ghost half way through printing pictures of the grandchildren and great grandchildren.  Luckily I managed to retrieve a few reject prints from the recycling box that were good enough to use. 

I wish all you Mothers and Grandmothers out there a very happy day and hope you are all being spoilt rotten!

Supplies: Stamps - PTI Lace Bouquet, Beautiful Blooms 2, Leaf Prints plus matching dies; Eline Pellinkhof Cross Stitch.
