Happy Mother's Day

They can go by many different titles in their life, nursemaid, chef, teacher, taxi driver, cleaner, supporter, friend, but, most commonly known as Mum.

It's that time of year where we celebrate those wonderful women who brought us into this world, or to give thanks to those special women in your life who have been there for you whenever you have needed them.

Mother's Day is celebrated in the UK and Ireland on Sunday March the 10th. Originally Mothering Sunday had it's roots in the church, however by the mid 1930's the custom had largely declined in the UK and Europe. During WWII US soldiers re-introduced the holiday to the UK and by the 1950's it had a resurgence of popularity and was celebrated on the fourth Sunday during Lent to bring it in line with the centuries old tradition of Mothering Sunday.

In the USA, Canada, Australia and in many other countries Mother's Day is celebrated on May 12th 2013. If you are interested in learning more, why not have a look here.

Without further ado, here are the cards I have created for those special women.

This card for my Mum was created in part for a challenge earlier this year, for more details, hop on over to the original blog post here. Along with the card I also made this pretty pouch to contain it;

The next two cards are newer creations.
This one is for my Nanna using Papertrey Ink's Spring Friendship Fillers and coloured with Promarkers.

This is for my Mother In Law using Papertrey Ink Year of Flowers Morning Glories, I stamped them on vellum and lightly coloured them with Promarkers, when the card is opened for display it gives a subtle stained glass effect.

I had best be off, I need to find that perfect present to go with the cards!

Take care
