The Birthday Girl

It's my Mum's birthday today, me and the girls have just returned from having a lovely birthday lunch with her, it seems like ages since my eldest has been able to come out on a Saturday, it was a nice surprise for mum to spend some time with her too. When the children were little mum got to see them most days but work and homework get in the way a bit these days.

Thought I'd share the card I made for Mum with you.

The image is Tea cup delights, one of the Garden Delights digi images by Ladybug Crafts Ink. Love the papers, thought they were a bit fussy but when I layered them up with the gold they look gorgeous! They are Red Floral and Flower Box from the "This & That collection from Echo Park" 

A simple, layered card set off with a large bow and sizzix diecut letters.

 Mum's a bit like me and dislikes having photos taken but I said she had to as it's her birthday! When the girls get together they're full of mischief, poor mum was oblivious as to what was going on behind her back, good job too lol! 

                            I hope I look this good at 84!

                                Happy Birthday Mum!

I'm using the card for the following challenges:-

Digi Days 29, Add a sentiment,( look hard it's stamped on the patterned paper)
DD15, Wonder of life,
Hotshot 5, Ribbon,
Patties 40, Anything goes,
Polka Doodles 12, Mothers Day,(hope mum's Bday counts!)
SNSDC 46, Celebrate spring.

Thanks for stopping by,
 enjoy the rest of your weekend,
