Raspberries for Mum

Nat is setting the challenge for us over at Daring Cardmakers and she'd like us to celebrate special women. It might be a card for Mother's Day but equally it could be something to mark a special friendship, an acknowledgement of an inspirational woman or any other way you can dream up to celebrate special women.

I made a card for my mum featuring a favourite fruit. Right from being a little girl we always had raspberries in the garden and once I was old enough to understand that they squash easily I helped Mum with the picking!

Oh that's so lovely to immortalize that memory in a card. I hope she enjoys her "card" raspberries as much as the real thing! :D

What a lovely remembrance type of card-I am positive your mother will love it. It is a charming thing to recall...this is very pretty. The berries are vibrant and you are SO good at coloring leaves-which I find to be difficult myself
