Birthday Girl

Good Afternoon
My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Not a nice day her, very windy and looks like we might be heading for a

Way hey I know have 74 followers and would like to welcome you all and I hope
I can keep you entertained and maybe just maybe give you a little inspiration.

Mum had a lovely day yesterday  on her birthday and really enjoyed her
little trip to town.  She managed to find something that she wanted
that I could buy her ( a dress and little cardigan jacket). She treated
herself to some tops and a jumper.  We went for a cuppa and slice of 
cake before bringing her back to ours for tea and a surprise  birthday
cake.  On the whole she really did enjoy herself and at the end of 
the day that's what its all about making someone feel  extra special on
their special day.

Thank you all for your good wishes to mum and I would like to share
with you the birthday  card that I made for her. 


1. Card is 8 x8 and I have matted it using paper from
the Craftwork Cards Cottage4 Garden Collection
Paper Pad.

2. Using Hunky-dory patterned card I die cut the
birds with Tattered Lace die Oriental Blue Bird, the
centre frame is from Marianne (sorry do not know the
name) and I have cut two, then cut one in half to
add to the sides to elongate the frame. 

           3. The sentiment MUM is a Tonic die and the Happy Birthday
are Robert Addams and these were cut out of lilac
card stock.

4. The flowers are all from my stash and to
complete I added a satin bow topped with
a dazzler. Pink gems were added to finish.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit and that you
will call back tomorrow when I will be showing
my DT creation for  the new Whoopsi Daisy

As Always
Until Next Time
Take Care and Happy Crafting
