This is the card I have made my Mum for Mother's Day.

The image and the floral backing paper are from Joanna Sheen's Jane Shasky CD, you might have noticed I rather like this CD, the other paper is Asparagus from My Mind's Eye.  I have returned to my favourite decoupage for this card as Mum loves it.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

This is the inside of my card, I printed one of the five inch interactive square inserts from the CD and added a verse from a Crafter's Companion CD, I usually leave my cards blank but felt this verse was just right for my Mum.

Sorry about the poor picture, I had already written the card and sealed it in it's box before I realised how bad it was.

This is the verse:
We're sharing in these wishes
For a specially happy day
That's exactly what you'd ask for
If you could have your way

And we're hoping that the love this brings
Will somehow make it clear
That Mother's Day is not one day
But every day all year

Happy Mother's Day

We're not into really sloppy words in our family and I thought these would be perfect.
