For Mum

Hello all and I hope that you've been having a good weekend. And I hope that all the mums out there in Blogland have had a good Mothering Sunday and been suitably spoilt!  I sadly no longer have my lovely mum or mum-in-law to make a fuss of - although I make a special wish for them! - but my offspring have been lovely with me, including some new slippers (well received as the old ones were something of a tragic case lol!) and some chocolates which my daughter said she chose specially because they wouldn't be very popular with anyone else so wouldn't magically 'evaporate' like so many other choccies in this house!  And I'm having tea made for me as I sit and type this - which is a wonderful treat!  The weather has also been kind to us today, with lovely spring sunshine so we've been out in the garden making the most of it!

Although as I mentioned, I don't have a mum to make a card for, a colleague had asked if I could make her a card for her mum - and she loves dogs and used to have two Yorkshire terriers that she adored - so I came up with this

The cute image is from Joanna Sheen's 'Furry Friends' cd, the backing paper from K&Co, with some added stitching. The flowers are from Wild Orchid, with Marianne swirl die cuts and leaves using Joanna Sheen dies. The ribbon and pearls are from stash and the sentiment from a Hunkydory kit. 

Hope you like it - and I hope my colleague's mum does! 
Before I go, just thought I'd share a couple of photos of my other babies with you - the furry ones. 
I recently made Tilly the Dog a new 'slouching' cushion with an old dressing gown and a couple of old pillows - I think she likes it!

She has such a hard life....

And my husband caught a great image of Grumpy Poppy - and she just looks like she's complaining about the dog, life, the universe and everything! 

(She wasn't really - I think she was actually mid-yawn being as she seems to do nothing but sleep!)

Anyway, enjoy what's left of your weekend, and I hope that the week ahead is a good one for you.
Back soon,
Kim  x
