Happy Mothers Day...

Happy Mothers Day to all the Mums out there.....extra special wishes to my Mum today especially after the last week.  Looking forward to seeing you today :)

It will no doubt be a difficult day for some who will be missing their Mums on this especial day so big hugs to you all too and a joyful day to those who are celebrating being a Mum for the first time.  An emotional day all round!

The card I am sharing is again coloured with Spectrum Aquas.....all my other colouring mediums are gathering dust at the moment...I'm sure it will be their turn again one day but for now these are my favourite.
