Love you, Mam!

Hello, and welcome!

I really do think that I must have the nicest group of Followers in are all so supportive, but also make me stop and think sometimes.....and I love it when you leave comments, but also love it when YOU post, so I can catch up with what you are up to, lol.

As promised yesterday, here's a card I made for my Mam, for Mothers''s next Sunday, here in the UK.......but it's not the one I originally planned for her.  I was going to use the tag that I made for Helen's tag challenge, back in February, but I think it was a bit too whimsical for Mam's taste, so I came up with something I think will be more to her taste (fingers crossed, heehee)........

The base is bog standard pink cardstock with a layer of gold paper on top....Mam luuuurves shiny........and then that simply gorgeous pink and gold swirly paper, that I've been dying to use......I have a drawer full of Craftwork Cards stuff, and only use it for special people, so it's ideal for my Mam........

I love the font on this little sentiment tag, which was from a QVC kit, and I simply edged it in gold Krylon pen and mounted it on some foam tape.......

The gold squares are the same paper as the background layer, and were cut with my Nesties........I layered cream and pink Craftwork Cards flowers and centered them with Card Candy, also from CC.....the flowers are made from really pretty pearlised card.........I added a length of wide pink organza ribbon, and layered thinner gold organza on top for a bit of glam.........
I finished the card with a pretty insert on which I printed a poem......but not gonna show ya that, 'cos it's personal for my Mammy, so stop tryin' to peek!

Thanks for stoppin' by,
