Mother's Day is that special time of year when you can truly show mum how much she means to you and say a big thank you for all the hard work she does.
It wasn't until I became a mum myself that I realised and appreciated all the things my own mum had done for me growing up - the support she had offered through friendship challenges, lifts to different activities, keeping in contact with family as well as running the house, getting me to school and herself to work. Doing it now for my own family, there's times I feel there are not enough hours in the day!
So mum's are pretty awesome, aren't they? And to say 'thanks mum' I've created a range of cards for you, including some DIY kits to let your creativity reign. There are different kits depending on the type of card you'd like to create: a 'Thanks a Bunch' card, another with pastel-coloured flowers, with one saying 'Happy Mother's Day'. Both kits have been fully designed and made here at Beagle HQ - I've even learned how to tie small bows!
We offer a third DIY kit with 'Happy Mother's Day' printed on cream card and assorted shapes to make a truly unique card.
As a massive tea drinker, I knew I needed to make a tea-themed card so designed a 'You're tea-riffic' card. In gorgeous pastel shades, the shape is based on a teapot my mum bought for me. As an added bonus, each teapot themed card comes with a free teabag so mum gets to enjoy a cuppa as well as her card.
If you'd like something a little more understated but still fun, there's a range of 'You're A Star' cards made with recycled materials.
I started working on the 'Flower Girls' cards years ago. The design is based on my own daughter and the small amigurumi I made for her. The card is printed, based on my own drawing and each card is hand-finished before a crochet forget-me-not is added. So beautiful!
I'm really proud of these cards. I have designed and made them all from scratch. They're the sort of cards I would make and send to my own mum and mother-in-law.
We offer a FREE card writing service if you're unable to send a card yourself. All our cards are posted to you through Royal Mail in a clear potato starch bag which can be composted and as long as you remove certain embellishments (for example the crochet flower or any glittery card which can be reused in other craft projects) they can be recycled.
These items are handmade so they may vary slightly from the ones shown.
Here at Beagle HQ we aim to offer clear and honest pricing. The materials are from UK-based companies and in many cases are made from sustainable or recyclable materials. Each card takes considerable time to put together and we aim to make it as personal as possible. This is reflected in our pricing. We hope you like it and appreciate the work and thought which has gone in to each card.
We aim to ensure our photographs truly reflect our products. Differences in lighting and the device the listing is viewed on can change the colour slightly.
We also aim to process and dispatch your items as quickly as possible and a photo of the Proof of Postage will be emailed to you. However, due to issues with Royal Mail, delivery times have been taking longer than we would like with UK delivery of second class taking up to 2 weeks and international deliveries taking between 6-8weeks. We ask you to be patient and if your item hasn't arrived after 2 weeks (UK) or 12 weeks (international) to please contact us and we will do our best to help. All local taxes to be paid by buyer.
