Meeses and Mothers Day xxxx

Happy Mother's Day to all the lovely Mums
(including my own wonderful Mum, even though she is no longer physically here but is always in my heart xxxx).

Have a great day and I hope you are all getting spoiled rotten xxxx
This isn't a Mother's Day card though, it's my card for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge which this week is to include some doodling on your card.

Well, say no more girls cos I just loves me doodling lol xxx I also combined it with the sketch from this week's Friday Sketchers, so it's a 2 in 1 :)) x

The papers are PP and Willow and the sentiment is Penny Black - part of the set I bought from the NEC. I gave my MS doily punch a day off for good behaviour and used the zig zag embossing one for a change. The yummy ribbon is from a past Raspberry Ribbons kit, the flowers are Poppicrafts and I got the the centre blingy bit from a wholesale warehouse near here.

This is actually 2 blooms which I cut into, stuck together and then faffed about with. I got the idea from my friend Donalda - she has made a beautiful paper flower which I just loved so I thought I'd use the same technique. You can see the original tutorial here at Ann's blog. She has some gorgeous ideas so check it out xxx

This is actually 2 seperate sentiments but I stamped them together and then added a bit of bling from my bling stash :))

Hope you likee xx

There's not much waffle again today cos Richard and I are working on a project in our garden and we want to do a bit more before we go out for dinner (well it's tea really cos the table is booked for 5.30pm as it was the only time we could get in!!).

I have to just say that I felt really sad this morning to hear about poor Jade Goody, bless her heart. What a brave and courageous young woman she was and also a fantastic mother, considering the awful start she had in life. Her outlook on life was fabulous and her love for her kids just shone out of her. It was so moving and poignant that she died today of all days and my heart goes out to those 2 little boys.

I cannot wait for my little treasure to get home tonight - early hours of the morning but I will be up and waiting for them xxxx I just want to kiss that sweet little face and give her the biggest hug ever cos I haven't half missed her. Soppy old Grandma lol xxxx

Huggiest of hugs xxxxx

Absolutely beautiful card and I was really touched with your Mothers Day wishes. My mother passed away last year & Mothers Day in Australia is the 2nd Sunday in May so it will be a tough time for us. So even though mum is not physically here, but in my heart and memories I might make her a card anyway.

Jules said...

Hi Dawny

Love your card and your blog. So much inspiration to be had.

I too felt sorry when I heard about Jade this morning - and for her little boys.

Love Jules xx

Marcea said...

Gorgeous ... and that's just you :o)
Love your card hunny and your doodling is wonderful!!! So happy you will all be together again - I know how much you have missed them whilst on their jollies. I was so sad also about poor Jade. That girl deserved a medal for her courage and I see every day at work how she has highlighted the importance of cervical screening. Such a tragic thing to happen to such a vibrant young woman. God bless her and her little lads

Hi Hun just adore the colour scheme on this fabulous card, and your flower is stupendous. You have coloured the litte meeces so perfectly, well garndma are you pleased to have them home :))
I do so feel that same about the death of Jade that girl had guts and I truly believe all the knockers were just jealous, but what a terrible time for those 2 little ones

Cheryl said...

What a sweet card Dawny....little mice with ribbons and flowers, so pretty.....

Jades death was indeed so very sad...and many mothers will be thinking of the two boys left behind. She has left them a wonderful legacy.....as they grow, they will hear about her bravery and courage.....
There will be many Mums hugging their children a little tighter tonight......

SallyB said...

Super dooper card. I'm a fan of spotty cards. love that little tag as well with the sentiment on.
Yes, what a day for Jade to pass on! It's just so unbelievably fast...it seems unreal.
Enjoy your loved ones!
