Here is the card I made my Mum this year. I went for a collage of diamond shapes that I cut from my Gardener’s World magazine (she likes gardening!). Note to self – next time do bigger diamonds – a lot easier!


This is the Mother’s Day Card I made for my mum. She likes violets. We always used to try to smell them, the scent was always illusive but worth the effort. A jackdaw because i like to include a bird and they are all around me here where i live. The scale is way off as jackdaws are big and violets are tiny but that is artist’s license in operation!

I am not completely happy with it: I used my watercolour pencils, which I am still getting used to, but I was happy to feel able to make the card in the first place! It feels spring-like at least.
