Mothers' Day Crafting

Happy (British) Mothers' Day to all the moms out there!  And, most of all, happy Mothers' Day to MY WONDERFUL MOM!!!

Here's the card I made for my mom, with some teeny-tiny little paper triangles, a black pen, and a set of alphabet stamps:



And here's the present I made for her.  It's the purse from the lovely Cath Kidston 'Stitch' book, and my first ever attempt at cross-stitch:


  
We're going to have a good, long Skype session later on.  I wish it could be a real-life chat, though!  But..... we don't have to wait too long for that now, thank goodness!!!  :-)

I LOVE YOU, MOM!!!

  3. Oh Carly, those are such beautiful gifts for your mother! That card is as pretty and delicate as the little purse. I bet you feel, like I do, a little sad sometimes to be living so far away from your parents. How lucky we are to have Skype, etc. to help us bear the distance.

    Happy week to you, lovely Carly.
