Mom / Mum

Hi bloggers!  Next die up on offer is the Mom/Mum die set.  This was a tricky one to design as my die line is not only sold in the UK, but also in the US, Canada and parts of Europe and Australia /NZ.  Some prefer Mom and some prefer Mum so I have designed a set that can be used either way.  The "O" in Mom can be easily nipped to create a "U" and transform the word into whichever form you prefer.  Shown here as Mom, you can see the lovely detail in each of the letters.  I promise to share a Mum card with you after the blog launch.  If you would like a chance to win this set, you just have to leave a crafty comment on this post.  Don't forget to make your name memorable though, I only have a single set to give away of each of the dies!  See you back here at 3pm today!  All for now, Sue x

June Smith said...

Afternoon Sue and all Wilsonettes, I can understand about the Mum and Mom, you might have a few people asking about 'a' so that they can do Mam, another way of speaking especially up north. Anyway a beautiful day as always.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Hi Sue, very pretty letters in this set. I think I can see where you could cut the”o” to make a “u” and still leave a nice white edge like the rest of the letter - being in Australia I am definitely a “mum” girl! I’ll look forward to see your card with the “mum” version when you do one.

Hi Sue.
A lovely card and die set. I love the design of the floral letters. I really hope you are planning to do a whole alphabet the same and not just these. It would be just perfect to get the whole set.
Take care everyone. Xxx

Hi Sue
A beautiful card and lovely floral letters. Not convinced about turning the O into a U so looking forward to seeing your sample.

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Absolutely beautiful. The delicate design is gorgeous Sue, a stunning sample too. Being up in Lancashire I also get asked for Mam and believe it or not, there are cards in those cheapo card shops that sell them !
This will be so valuable to add to my collection. Hope you're having a good day xx

FoxyG Gilly said...

Fabulous! Love the florals.

Hi Sue
Fabulous card and I can see from the packaging how you turned the O into a U with the addition of the little flowers included in the set, you really do think of everything which is why your dies are simply the best

Diane Green said...

Hi Sue
You are clever to cover all possibilities, I can see the snipping point where you don't loose the design. I think this will be very popular. Thank you for sharing.
Love Diane G xxx

karenlotty said...

Hopefully this will publish and apologies if the others suddenly appear
I like the set and they look like they’re a lovely size to be the focal point
Of course being the uk I’d use MUM I’d have liked to see the set with M, U and O instead Is there going to be D and A I wonder....

Rose in Chester said...

Hi Sue,
You negotiated this tricky problem very cleverly. And the die will be used again and again...
Hugs, Rose

Kiraneries said...

Hi Sue, a gorgeous Mom card and die. I can see your dilemma with having to please your worldwide customers. It is great that you have allowed snipping points to change Mom to Mum.

A lovely, cheerful card Sue. Sadly couldn’t use it for my Mum but many could I am sure. Thank you. Xx

Tressa said...

Although not a die that I could use any more, this will be a lovely one for many. I like the way in which you have designed it so it can be snipped to make our more commonly used 'mum'.

Hello Sue, a very intricate die set, but as usual you have thought of everything by making the letter O adaptable into an U. Your card is really pretty and any Mom/Mum would love to receive it. Bx

Lovely design and very suitable for all. x

Narrowboat girl said...

Love the design of letters Sue but am thinking that by cutting into the O to make U this will make the letter smaller than the M. I look forward to seeing it in action

Kitty Davies said...

Hello Sue.
Thank you a very nice die set and pretty card.
I see how you made the u turn it upside down with an extra flower in the midddle it becomes a mam which I am, Sue you will never please all the people I am not critising your brilliant designs,just that we can always find away around things, now I am waffling.
Take care and have fun Kitty.

Love these letters, Sue, although as Karen's says, it is definitely Mum for us Aussies. I can see how it can be modified. Loving the look of the flowers - can't wait to see them launched.

Hi Sue and everyone

Great die set and beautiful card. Sadly my lovely mother is no longer around and now lives only in my heart and in my memories. But being from ‘Up North’ she was a Mam. Good idea about the O and U though, and I am surprised just how many on the blog have said they have or did had Mams.

As I said the card is beautiful.

Love Helen xxx

Sue, you are so very clever and thoughtful to design a die reading MOM but that one can nip away alittle bit of the "O" to make MOM into MUM. Awesome!

Elizabeth Louise said...

Had the mum/mom debate on a Birmingham history Facebook forum, and although Americans tend to go with Mom and Brits tend to go with Mum, the consensus was that Mom was a midlands expression first and took hold in the states with midlanders being amongst the fist European settlers, but Mum became more popular over here, though Mam in the north east. There was much complaining that you never see Mom on cards in the shops here....soreally pleased to see this die set!

Chris’ partner Elizabeth - wonder if he’ll read this ;)
