Mother's Day

I've been so lucky in having a brilliant mother-in-law having lost my own mum many many years ago.  She told me a little while ago that if I ever bought her a shop card instead of making her one she would never speak to me again. I believed her!  So, here's her card already to go into a box and post.

The paper is by SU as is the Baja Breeze blue card, all purchased from Mrs Fab aka Monica here.  The focal image is called Verity from Sugar Nellie, flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts, pearls from the Dollar Store in Canada, ribbon from the US by Sharon of Stamp Simply and the gorgeous sentiment is from Netty's Cards.  Pay her a visit as she has several beautiful sentiments on her blog. Thank you for sharing, Netty.

I'd like to enter this card into the following:

What a beautiful card, love the subtle colouring and that paper is lovely. I know what you mean about not giving a chop bought card. Everyone expects handmade whether you've got time or not ! Your MIL will love this :)
