Anyhow, whether you speak UK or US English, and say mum or mom, this week's challenge at One Stitch At A Time is all about mothers.

I played around with border punches to make some decorative edges on my card and I used some pretty papers (freebies again!) in blue and pink pastel colours.
I also trimmed back the front section of the card and used the papers - and a coordinating sentiment tag - to decorate the inside of the card too:
I finished things off with a length of ribbon...
...and some gemstones:
