Easy Mother's Day Card

For those of you in the UK it is Mother's Day on Sunday 15 March and as a Mum to two wonderful, noisy boys, I know that all I really want is a lie in and a handmade mother's day card. However, why not take a look at this fab fun Mother’s day calculator from Newcastle Building Society to see how much your Mum is really worth or what Mother's Day traditions are around the world.

Once you have then why not get prepared and make this fab easy Mother's Day card, which was inspired by this fab hanging Mother's Day flowerpot craft by In the Playroom

Easy Mothers Day Card


  1. A4 white card
  2. Pen
  3. scissors
  4. Paint We love this Scola Artmix ready mix coloured paint
  5. Baby wipes (perfect for wiping little hands and fingers before you get them to the sink)

How to make an easy Mother's Day Card

To make this super simple I have made you a template, so  that you can either print or cut the plan pot.  I cut mine on the Cricut Explore and it also did the writing too!  Oh and it now has a Bluetooth dongle, so you do not have to have your Cricut Explore connected to your laptop or PC and you can use it on your IPad and it costs under £25!

If like me you have a child that is totally averse to getting dirty you can always cut round their hand on green paper, but ideally you want to cover your childs hand with green child safe washable paint and get them to stamp it on the card and then wash their hand allowing the paint to dry.

We started by stamping handprints on to a piece of A4 card folding in half and allowing it to dry.  Mini doesn't mind getting all messy, it is Maxi that hates it! 

We then added fingerprint flowers to the end of each of the fingers.

Then we glued on our plant pot.

A super easy, but wonderful Mother's Day Card that will be treasured for years to come.

  1. Oh those cards are gorgeous! I love the mothers day calculator too, think I might have to show that to my husband and kids as well ;)

  2. So sweet and I love the idea of a dongle for the cricut

  3. Lovely card. I must send something to my mum. I've seen each of my children make at least two cards for me so far, at pre-school, and toddler group, and at home and school. I think I may be inundated with cards on Sunday!

  4. thank you for your timely tweet, we made these here with the playgroup today!

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop. 

Tissue paper poppy badges

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers. This year MadDad will also be marching in his capacity as Manager of the U7's football team.  We are great believers in remembering what people have done for us and the boys have been busy making tissue paper poppies at Beavers.

Don't feel pressured in to spending at Christmas and a giveaway

According to a recent survey by  Whyte & Mackay    46.2% of people confess to feeling pressured into spending £100-£200 more than they can afford.    I have to admit that this really shocked me, but them with the rising cost of things and also the unrealistic expectations of people it is often very hard to keep a lid on spending. Other irritations were: ·          Christmas dinner preparations (25%) . The most common complaint is when mum-in-laws unfavourably compare the way dinner is served to the ‘proper way’ (i.e. her way). ·          Cruel present choices (24%). The majority felt that parent-in-laws purposefully bought presents for them that they wouldn’t like, from terrible Christmas jumpers to regifting items already in their cupboards. ·          Fighting over board games (15%). The most frenetic choice is the team game of charades with 34% of those who have fought with their parent-in-laws coming to blows. Monopoly is the board game that seems to cause the least amoun
