Wonderful Mother

Well, it's Mother's Day tomorrow and some of the family will be dropping in and some will be here for tea - pizza with self-saucing chocolate pudding for sweets. If it's Mother's Day in your part of the world, I wish you a happy day.
I had a busy day today. I went off to the shops to buy some groceries and to have a look around at some clothes. I bought myself a pair of cord jeans. Love corduroy and this is the first time I've been able to fit into a pair for many years so am pleased.  I spent the afternoon baking small cakes for tomorrow's choir fundraiser. Adrian and I went out for a meal with our  eldest daughter, her fiancee, his mum and sister and our youngest son tagged along too. We had Chinese food, which was quite nice. We came back home and our daughter, her fiancee and our son went off to the pictures. Laurie has only just got home and it's just sneaked over midnight (I'm going to tweak my post to come in just before midnight as I did finish the card before then, LOL.)
I spent some time watching tv and then jellied the cakes so they will be ready to be split and creamed in the morning. It is a time consuming job!
My card for today is for Mum for Mother's Day - so sorry if you've looked at the blog Mum, it won't be a surprise.
I used SU Garden Green for the basecard and then a layer of purple card from stash. I used a green silky thread to embroider the swirl pattern and then stamped this lovely butterfly from SU onto white card and cut it out minus the antennae. I also stamped it onto another piece of card and cut out with a circle punch. This was then adhered to a black scalloped circle. The sentiment is from SU Well Scripted and inked with Basic Black. I went over the word "mother" in black pen to emphasize it a bit more,  On  the inside I used a piece of SU Certainly Celery and stamped a swirly pattern of butterflies in SU Basic Brown. The stamp is from a cling rubber set by "Stamp-It"
