Happy Mother’s Day to all those Mum’s out there!….. especially my Mum – love you Mum!
Mum came down to visit me 2 weekends in a row, first for Easter long weekend then again last weekend so she could take me to & from the hospital for my surgery. I really wanted to make her something special for Mother’s Day, but I was really fighting with finding my mojo while she was here & also trying to create something that she wouldn’t see. So I managed to make a basket to put some little goodies in & a card but must admit I wasn’t really happy with my colours, although I was happy with the final outcome.
My basket (template) was from Lauren Meader & I saw this cute bookmark card on someone’s blog (I’ll come back & let you know with an update when I find it again)
Here is her gift (empty)
(Now the basket is quite big as the card is a normal C5 size.)
The card has a bookmark hidden in the front
I filled the basket with a few things for her to use for cardmaking & nougat & chocolates & little bee ornament for her cactii garden. Last weekend we went for a drive to Monteville and Maleny which is in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast here in Queensland & bought her a few little plants she liked as an early gift as well.
I then decided to make another card the same for David’s mum as she likes to read, I must admit I had bit more of my mojo happening on this card with the colours.
We found a cute little plant for her – quite quirky I think! – and she had hinted previously to David that she’d love a few more little citronella candles, so this was her gift
I woke my Mum this morning when I called her to wish her a Happy Mother’s Day…..oops (but she doesn’t usually sleep in til 8am). However I’m still waiting for ‘that’ call from my son, but perhaps I’ll just get it in person when I get home this afternoon…..lol. As I’m currently up at Toorbul having just shot some sunrise photos. I was really happy as my “other” son Luke (Ben’s best mate) has text me wishing me a Happy Mother’s Day! Now let’s see if I get my wish for my pressie, as I gave my son enough hints…. even leaving the catalogue open from the junk mail….lol
Until later, happy stampin’
