Miss You Mum

I made this special card for my dear old Mam who lives 600 miles away in North East Scotland. We phone each other every Sunday night and last night she said that she hadn't seen or heard from my younger sister (who lives 10 miles from her) for over a month. This really upsets me as the whole family stood over my Dad's grave 10 years ago and said we were going to look after Mam.

I know she will love this card (I try to send her on once a week).

I used my Earth Fairy Freebie from Pollycraft, coloured with my PMs, and matted and layered her on blue and orange paper from stash then stuck it all down on Dovecraft's Retro Floral.
I added buttons, ribbon and bows and made a sentiment on the PC.
I am entering this into Polka Doodles Something for Mum using blue/beige/orange Challenge No 20.


  1. Hi Sheila, Your lovely mum is lucky to have a daughter who cares about her so much.
    Families members are always the same in every family, my mum looks after my nana who is 94. Nana is fab and can still get about fine, but it is hard work for my mum (mum is a spritly 70 year old) and nana's other 3 kids don't do their share... It is annoying.
    Take care Debbiexx
