Special Mum

Hi friends......hope you're all well!
It's promising to be a beautiful day here on the Yorkshire Coast so guess what's gonna be the
highlight of my day? Washing on the line lol......there's nothing better than the smell of 
freshly dried washing, is there? It really doesn't take much to please me!!
Anyway, I have another make to share know when you have an idea buzzing around in your head & you can't settle to anything else until you've tried it? Well, this was
 supposed to be a quick & easy card........but oh my gosh, it took forever......and I do mean
 forever! I simply layered up some pink & white card then cut the sunray frame once in pink then once more in each of the different papers BUT.......I got all the papers mixed up & sorting them out again & getting the right size in the right place was no mean feat lol. I do think it was worth it though, the papers look so pretty & I finished it off with a special mum topper.....both papers & topper are from Craftwork Cards.
Rightio, gonna go do some baking.......bakewell tart today, I think! Thanks for calling & for
 any comments you might leave......see you tomorrow!
