Forever Friends...Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day every one! (this side of the pond) This is the first time ever that I have made two cards for the Mother's that are totally different. So now I'm wondering, which one is for which Mum! Anyway, which ever Mum gets which ever card I'm sure they'll love the chocies that go with them! Yes, last weeks Mother's Day Easel card/ box is now filled with chocolates rather than the brownies that Hubby made last weekend. There was no way they were going to last all week!! Course, they would've gone stale, wouldn't they? I mean, I couldn't let that happen!
This card has been covered with Pink Petticoat Vintage Rose Papers (so at least that's the same!) Stickles Glitter, ribbon, (The same but darker pink than the other card) gems, die cut corners and a Forever Friends Decoupaged Bear. I'm sure I've used this one before, but that's the beauty of making your own cards, they can never look exactly the same, no matter what! (well, not when I make them they don't!)
The sentiment I did on the computer, cut out with Woodware and **Crafts-too punches. The Font is a freebie, it's called Amazone BT and you can download it HERE
The inside of the card (pink) also has some Forever Friend stickers of the same bear holding his flowers.
This Card will probably go to John's Mum, as she has said, no flowers!! So, it's a way of giving them without her having to worry where to put them, apart from on her mantelpiece! Thank you for stopping by!
