Mother's Day Card


First of all - MUM, if you're reading this post, PLEASE STOP (!), or you'll see your card before you receive it!

Mother's Day is approaching here in the UK (it's on the 18th of March). As it's my daughter's birthday the day after, I thought I'd get my mother's day cards made now, so I don't forget them when I'm busy wrapping pass-the-parcel prizes or baking cakes for her party!

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a giveaway on the Crate Paper blog for these 'Paper Heart' goodies:

I was so excited, as I really wanted this collection but it seems to be hard to get hold of in the UK. I couldn't wait to start playing with it, so it was the perfect choice to make a card for my mum:

The colours in this collection are gorgeous, I love the contrasts of the corals and reds, against the turqoise and yellow. You might see a few more projects featuring this collection...!

If you want to be in with a chance of winning giveaways of Crate Paper goodies, I highly recommend keeping an eye on their blog, or following them on Twitter or Facebook if you use either of these. I found out about the giveaway via a tweet. I'm finding Twitter really useful for keeping me in the loop when I'm not able to go online for long. Also, if you are on Twitter, don't forget to follow me @_jennifergrace_ okay?!!
