Simple Twitterpated Mum

Today's card is one of the cards we made at my Mother's Day class back at the end of April. This class was great for me as well as my class girls, as it meant I would be on time with my Mother's Day cards too!
I liked the pretty & soft simplicity of the card -perfect for Mother's Day I think. This was also my first card made with some (at that time) new goodies from the Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue - the beautiful Twitterpated paper, pleated satin ribbon (I'd never be able to sew like that!) & of course my new Edgelits dies to give that lovely curve. I teamed these with the oval Designer Frames & a pretty image from the 'Tagtastic' hostess stamp set.
I liked this so much I gave it to my own wee Mum....with a little sentiment & colour variation which is much more my normal style.
Thinking back, Mother's Day seems so long ago, as so much has happened since then. Mum got very sick, then was in hospital. I'm glad to say she's recovering & doing much better now. It's just very hard to see her getting more fragile as time moves on.
Anyway, I'd better finish here, before I start waffling. Hope you liked my card & thanks for visiting.
Inky wishes, Di

These are both really pretty Di. Love your double die-cut edge! The frame looks great up both ways too. TFS. Good to hear your Mum's health is improving. :)
