Mother’s Have a Beautiful Day

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back to a very different Mother’s Day celebration today.  I am at home with my husband and daughter having a very quiet day and will be hopefully catching up with my son when our restrictions are released in the next week or so.

I have a special card to cheer all those celebrating Mother’s Day around the world.  I have used Heartfelt Creations Wild Rose and Oakberry Lane flowers and leaves with the new Elegant Oval Frame dies.  I have had limited craft supplies at home and so have used the Calla Lily papers with these flowers.

I apologise for the quality of the photos – the lighting is not great at home.

I hope that you are safe and well wherever you are in the world.  Kia Kaha – stay strong
