Mother's Day 2017 Cards to Celebrate

Happy Mother's Day to my beautiful mum who we are blessed to have live with us (well in the Granny flat but its walking distance). She has been a great help to us as we have raised our 3 young ladies.

The card for my mum - I pulled out the 'coming soon' Daisy Delight Bundle, Tranquil Tide Card and ink plus some Pumpkin Pie. This card evolved form a full panel of the patterned DSP to what you see here.
A little history - my mum is not a flowers on cards sort of person - actually she will say she hates them! I take the challenge to make flower cards that she will like frequently most of the time I win her over. She loved this one so I am happy.

My mother in law loves pink and loves flowers so she was easy to make a pretty card for. I love the Daisy Delight bundle - I will say please when making this card you need to make sure the daisy is not to far over the edge as it won't fit in the envelope. Yes I know this - this is take 2!

Some of you that have been following my blog for a while and for those that haven't, One of my many hats is that I'm a Midwife at the local hospital. We have between 3200-3500 babies a year born with us and for the last few years I have made cards for each new mum on the Maternity ward on Mother's Day. This year I decided to make it bigger and put a load of planning into it. With the DSP promotion during the end of Sale-A-Bration I collected an extra pack of the Succulent Garden DSP.
I put a notice up at work to see if anyone would like to help and between us we ate, drank tea and made 60 cards to hand out! Every lady that our whole service had contact with got a card - so those that birthed and went straight home, mums with babies in the Special Care Nursery, Mums on the Maternity ward and Mums visited by our Early home visiting program. I wasn't at work but the feedback I have received was beautiful and makes my heart sing.

They look impressive bundled up like this don't they?
To make it easy for us we used the Note card and Envelope packs and we worked like a production line. At the time this post goes live most of the elements of this card are still available in Australia. Mint Macaron Ink and Card are already sold out! Loved that colour!

 Succulent card goodies still available while stocks last!
