Mothers Day

Good morning, a short post this morning as I've a busy day ahead.This card is for a special friend of ours for mother’s day that I finished last night. My mums card is already posted and was a card I finished some time ago. 
I don’t usually do a blog post again till Sunday but we are off on a exciting long weekend break later today and flying from Heathrow; so we have a long drive ahead today also. We are off to the Ice Hotel in Lapland so I’ve posted this now as I won’t be back until next Tuesday evening. I printed several of these fab free floral digi stamps from which I coloured last weekend and I've decided to use this  pretty daffodil one; there are some fab images and they are all free,you should go check it out. I went for quite a bold colour scheme as I've  coloured the flowers brightly. I’m happy with how it turned out and I hope she likes it. Happy Mothering Sunday to everyone and have a wonderful weekend …be back next week… hugs Andrea x
