For Mum


We travel back from MIL today not sure now thats a good idea, four hours in the card dwelling on the fact its Mum's Birthday and the first one she's not here to celebrate. But I did make her card although I did smile when I realised that she would prefer some glitter somewhere, anywhere.

I chose the Sarah Kay image with her tray teapot and cups, she did love offer a cup of tea to whoever knocked on her door and when she couldn't make it any more she'll get my Dad to make it.

The Oval is from Spellbinders and the leaves are Memory Box Fresh Foliage still a favourite with me. The flowers are EK Success punch. My cup/mug is from Simon Says Stamp but the saucer is from MFT teapot stamp and die set.

The sentiment is a Simon Say Stamp set and I had planned to make a fishtail banner but then last minute tried it across the corner and liked it so it stayed.




Happy Birthday Mum

This is a really pretty card Debby and I love the SK image with her tea tray and such a beautiful ornate mat, and the pink bp's and the extra embellishments with the leaves, flowers and the mug and saucer all coordinate wonderfully well. I love the photos of your Mum with that huge ice cream and she would have adored this card and you obviously have so many happy memories of her. The first anniversaries are always the hardest! x
