Mothers Day card

This is a simple little card for my Mum for Sunday. Yes she will be late receiving it but I was waiting on a nice gift box of goodies to arrive before I posted it on to her. Time has been very short for me lately as it is nut harvesting time but I can't believe how long it took me to make this card! Maybe I am just out of touch!

I think it is mostly self explanatory - the middle flower was made using a Spellbinders die, as was the sentiment label, the tiny daisies were punched out using a darling little punch which I treasure - it was a gift from Canada, the sentiment, seam binding and leaves are from Stampin' Up! and the beautiful paper is Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings.

Here is the reason for my lack of cardmaking!

What a beautiful card Jean. I love your blue seam binding bow. It is perfect! You made my mouth water with that HUGE crate of macadamias. Yummy!!!!

GORGEOUS! Jean, this is so pretty and topped off with that beautiful bow. WOW!
That's a LOT of nuts! Know you must be busy!

It's a beautiful card Jean. Now to work out which nestie you used for the label. I do like the blues you've used with the touch of burgundy.
