Mother's Love

Hi, a very quick post today with a very quick CAS card. A friend asked me to make a very simple, very flat card for posting. Well, it doesn't get much quicker or simpler than this!

My Card

Click on image to enlarge picture

It is a 6x6 card cut from hammered cardstock.  A strip of lilac checked  paper was glued to it and a computer generated sentiment attached.  I used a peel off teapot and teacup stuck onto a scrap of lilac Bazzill Basics and that was it.  I debated with sticking on some pearls or gems but in the end decided that sometimes less is more!  I love this sentiment, but it does bring back so many memories of my mum. I guess all of us who no longer have our mothers with us feel  more than a little nostalgic at this particular time of year.

Almost the weekend - again!! Where does the time go? I'm sure the fairies are stealing some days out of the calendar because we surely cannot be into the second week of March already!!!

Love and hugs from Christine xx
