Tomorrow would have been my mum's birthday

Hello and welcome to my little crafty world. How is everyone? I'm busy doing a lot of knitting, Every time I sit down, I'm there with needles in hand. When husband (who is being very patient) walks in from work, I'm knitting! It could be worse, I could be doing housework!
Tomorrow would be my mum's birthday and even though she's not here any more, I still make her a card and write a message. As I laminate it, to protect it from the weather, it has to be flat. This card was inspired by a beautiful card I received from a crafty friend for my birthday. I cut the butterfly die twice, once in the background card and once in white which I covered in glitter and paper pieced back into the card. Simple but very effective

  3. Hi Karen,
    what a beautiful card, and so very lovely to remember your Mum like that.
    I lost my Mum 13 years ago, and there isn't a day I don't think about her.
    She did all sorts of craft so when I craft she is always there with me.
    My sister says she wishes that she could have seen the cards I make now as she would have been very proud.
    Love and big hugs.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
