Especially for You

Good morning all. Another week, wonder what this one has in store! Hoping to get to the SECC  on Thursday to meet up with a few crafty friends. Hubby and I are off out to lunch today to celebrate his sister's 50th birthday. I've had a bit of a dicky tummy all weekend so hope the menu isn't overly fancy!

This is the card I've made for Mum for Mother's Day.

Decoupage image is from the Meadow Cottage Bears set. Backing paper is from K&Co. Dies from Spellbinders and Die'sire. Ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. Purple cord and charm from Meiflower. Pearls and floral arrangement from my stash.
