Happy Birthday Mum


Today is my Mum's Birthday and this is the card I made for her. I am still just dipping into Pinterest for a few minutes at a time and I saw a similar idea for a scrapbook page. I like to make something a little different for my Mum and I thought this idea could also be used for a card. I love the way it turned out and will be making some more of these. I have used one of the LOTV art pads and LOTV Timeless Victorian paper. The lace is from Crafty Ribbons and I added some Wild Orchid flowers and a couple of die cut corners using a Sizzix die.

See above post for my candy. I also have some craft stash for sale in an album on my Facebook page.

We went out for a lovely meal last night with friends and today we are going to visit my friend Lynsey and her daughter for coffee before a trip to Sprinkle Twinkle, the best craft shop in Norfolk. Then lunch and back to Norwich for food shopping.
