A Knitting Fairy for Mum


Another card I can now show, its my Mum's 89th Birthday today and my Sis brought over a cake yesterday. It was lovely has we sat out in her Nursing Home's pretty garden. But she got her cards and present so I know this one has already been received not that my Mum goes on a PC.
When I saw Mo's Baby Fairy Purl I knew I had to use it for her. She's always knitted and for a long time she stopped but when she got settled into a Nursing Home after many years she wanted to start again. Today she has been making Father Christmas, Snowmen and Penquins ready for the home's Christmas Fair.
My only problem with this card was I couldn't stop adding stuff.
La La Land corners, MFT Upsy Daisy die with  Memory Box Fresh Foliage and I'm so glad Simon Says Stamps make a English Mum die.
Not sure I should be on the computer has for the past hour its been lightening and thundering.

I think all the die cuts, lace and ribbon look beautiful and not too much for the design :-)

Oh how lucky you are to be able to share your mum's birthday with her! Happy Birthday to her! The card you made is darling, and the embellishments are incredible!

I hope your Mum had a very happy celebration! I'm sure she loved the card - it's a beaut, Debby. And, for the record, I don't think it's problem when one can't "stop adding stuff" as you say. I always want to add more to my cards and lament the fact that, had I thought of it (before the card was sent) I could have added...! And thank you too for the offer of a helping hand (or perhaps a shoulder to blub on when my hormones get too hot!). I may well take you up on your offer one of these days! Hugs, Lesley
