Yesterday was Mothering Sunday in the UK.
When I first started blogging and using Twitter to chat to friends on the other side of the pond, I was surprised to find that Mothers' Day was on a different date in the US. I suppose I should have expected it to vary (indeed, Wikipedia has a list of dates for Mothers' Day around the world), but somehow it just hadn't occurred to me.
This year I needed to make two cards, one for my mum and one for my mother-in-law. I used identical card blanks, but picked different papers and colour schemes to create two different (if clearly related) styles:
The letters are hand-drawn and cut out, though my mum (who makes plenty of cards herself) asked me whether I'd had a special cutter! So they must be neat enough to pass.
