So Very Grateful for mothers day

Are you a Last Minute Minnie? If you are you probably haven't made your Mother's Day card yet, but fear not! Three Minute Thursday is here with a quick but pretty little number to make your mum feel loved and appreciated - and that's what it's all about isn't it? Come and see:

The focus of this 9cm square card is the sentiment. If you don't yet have Delightful Dozen, I'd highly recommend it for its variety of beautifully designed sentiments that will cover all the high days and holidays in your calendar!

I fell in love with the So Very Grateful stamp set from the spring/summer catalogue the moment I saw it. Colouring isn't really my forté but a scribble of ink with an aquapainter is all these beautiful images need! Don't these pastel shades look wonderful against the Smoky Slate?

I didn't come up with this gorgeous colour palette by myself - it's the latest in a series of wonderful colour combinations at the ColourQ where I'll be linking up this card.

My own mother died when I was very tiny and I was constantly being told that it wasn't a problem because I couldn't possibly remember her. It was only when I had my own babies that I realised how ludicrously untrue that is. This may go a long way to explain why being a mother is such an important part of my life and oh my goodness, how blessed I am to have the three most wonderful children in the universe! (Well okay, perhaps that last bit is a bit of bias on my part!)

Tomorrow I'll be presenting my latest video - how to make a really useful bellyband box. Hope to see you then,


  1. My mother died years ago but remembering how she was brings her back to life again, what I'll do now I'll send my d.i.l. a nice card for being such a wonderful mother to my grandchildren.

  2. btw mother's day in Holland is on the 2nd sunday in May, so I still have some time to make her a nice card.
    Love from Holland, Mimi

  3. Beautiful card and a tribute to your own mother and being a mother.

  4. Oh Vicky, I had no idea - how ridiculous to say that because you couldn't remember her, you couldn't miss your mum. That kind of early loss is profound. I'm really sorry. And I bet you are the most fabulous mum to your lucky three (and I just know they think you are wonderful too!) xxx

  5. Such a beautifully soft and femine card Vicky. I know you've told me about your Mother before but reading your words made me feel sad.... what a thing to say to a child. You are a wonderful Mum and both you and your family are blessed to have each other xxx


I'd love to know what you think. Do leave me a comment - it always makes my day! Vicky x
