Mothering Sunday Cards

6 Mar


As my UK friends will know, we are approaching Mothers’ Day, which is the special Sunday where we say, “Mum, you are the best!” in as many lovely ways as we can think of.

My family are scattered extensively across the British Isles, so unfortunately I don’t get chance to see them all in one go. Therefore, I am off to visit my Mum this Sunday, which I am looking forward to, and I should hopefully see my Nana (she’s a Mum too!) the following weekend.

In the meantime, I’ve made some Mothers’ Day cards, which I thought I would share with you in case you are also making cards this week!DSCN1514

I’ve looked high and low for some instructions for crochet hearts that I could actually follow, as every time I’ve tried, the results have looked rather more like a biological heart than a stylised one! Finally, I was lucky enough to discover the wonderful Cornflower Blue Studio blog, which has a very easy-to-follow instruction for the hearts. Thanks to Rachel at Cornflower!

For all you traditionalists out there, yes, my Nana is going to have kittens that I wrote ‘Happy Mothers’ Day’ on the card, rather than ‘Happy Mothering Sunday’. I only remembered after I’d written it – eek! I made amends by writing ‘Mothering Sunday’ on the inside though, so hopefully that will balance out.
