Well good morning peeps! Hope you are all well on this lovely Saturday morn!

As most of you will know, tomorrow is Mother's Day (or 'Mothering Sunday' if you prefer) here in the UK. I was super organised and made my personal mother's day cards a few weeks ago. However...I was asked by a friend to make a "Mothering Sunday" card yesterday!! I decided to follow this week's brilliant sketch over at Friday Sketchers (thanks Beatrix!). I also wanted to use my brand new Amy Butler Sola paper that I received for my birthday. I absolutely LOVE her K & Co 12x12 range, and now that I know that Gill at The Hobby House stocks the best range of 12x12 K & Co pads (well, in my opinion anyway! LOL!), I will be adding to my ever increasing paper collection! I keep promising myself that I will use what I have before buying anything else, but then I find another set of paper that I simply must have, or see another stamp that is too beautiful not to own!

I'm also going to enter this card into this week's Whiff of Joy Challenge #22 which is 'green', plus this week's ABC Challenge which is 'F is for Flowers'. WOW! Three challenges in one - I love it when a plan comes together! LOL!

Hope to be back with another card later today or tomorrow!

Ta ta for now, my lovely blogging buddies!

Hugs, Sem x
