Wonderful card Susie :)
I've got a little hangy thing from my grandkids with the same sentiment substituting 'grandmas' for 'mothers' so I score on both counts :)

stunning card and love the sentiment

kim said...

A gorgeous card. I love the sentiment and it has inspired me to have a go at making a card for my mum. She's nursing my sister after a hospital stay- and really is a mum in a million. I need to let her know I think she's special- whilst my sister is too poorly to appreciate her!

Lisa Hemmings said...

Love it! what a great quote...
Beautiful colours.
I have not long discovered your blog and I can't believe what i've been missing out on!
Oh well.... I know where to go now
