Very Belated Mother's Day card

Hi everyone. Thank you for your lovely comments on my card. I really appreciate you taking the time to leave them for me. It makes me a happy bunny :D. I will definitely show you my craft room when it's finished. I've got something being made which will take a while so it will probably be a couple of months before it's completely ready for its grand unveiling.

Onto today's card. A local tearoom/ farm shop has offered to sell my cards whenever I can make them which is just wonderful of them as it doesn't put me under any pressure if I'm not feeling up to card-making. This is a Mother's Day card I made for the shop but have only just managed to show you:-

Well that's all from me today except a little apology if I haven't commented on some of your posts. I'm so behind on things at the moment at home so my blogging is taking a back seat. I've also got to sort through my craft stuff and my mums to see what I want to keep and what must go which I'm not looking forward to as I'll want to keep everything!!
Sending you all a big hug,

  1. Wow, Debra this is just stunning. Your image is beautiful and your choice of colours and papers are gorgeous. The heart doily looks great and the ribbons, flower and lace are fabulous. I love the way you have positioned everything and your sentiment finishes the card wonderfully. Sally.x.

  3. Hi Debra, love your card, it is very sweet, just a delight!! Love the colours you used and all the design! The distressed borders look great!
    I'm happy for you, the offer of the tearoom to sell your cards is very good and you can relax yourself, because you don't have the appointment to produce cards if you don't feel to craft.

  4. Very pretty indeed Debra, love the purple touches, looks great with your fab background, a lovely card!

  5. Hi Debra So glad to see your post I was just thinking about you earlier as I got out the ribbons I won as I'm doing a card for the ladies at the craft group again. Enough of that your card is fabulous love the gorgeous design and colours so so pretty lucky you finding someone to take your cards to sell I end up getting sick of my spares and give them away to charity groups for free!! Really looking forward to the new craft room and if you want to keep everything then get more boxes you'll miss the stuff you get rid of for sure especially your Mum's stuff so many memories .Take care Love and hugs Carole x

  6. Hi Debra, I've been having a bit of a blog catch up tonight and seeing what you've all been up to. I was sorry to read about your fall :o(

    This is very pretty, I bet it was snapped up - and someone's Mum will have loved it.
