Happy Birthday Mum

Yesterday was my Mum's birthday.  I sent her a card but due to NZ having it's public holidays on Monday and Tuesday after Christmas and New Year, it didn't make it on time...... I suspect it will be a few days.... so Mum..... here is your card!!!!

Birthday Bloom


Using my new Small Striped  Flower cling and inspired by this card by Tiffany.

I spoke with Mum yesterday morning which was nice.  She said that the morning was going well....

I also sent them a card for their anniversary which was last week.
Anniversary Card

this one used another of my new Hero Arts stamps.... Classic Fabric Design.  I stamped it in black on some silver translucent paper and cut to size. The base card was made with some Bazzil. I then stamped a chandler onto white card ( stamp by Teresa Collins) and cut it out. Once it was stuck to the background added some Glossy Accents to make it shine and a small piece of peelcraft for the chain. I used the computer to print the sentiment and cut with a Spellbinders die. Added some little blue gems ( free gift with my last Simon Says Stamp order)

I also managed to get a card done for hubby's niece who was 13 on the 2nd of January.  One of The Greeting Farm stamps I won from Kelly was a Friday stamp, which I thought was perfect for a teenager.  I kept the card fairly simple.

Friday Birthday


We are having a great summer here now... hot and sunny.  My friend Sue has described Auckland summers perfectly in her post here.  Go have a read and see her wonderful picture of the morning sunrise......   I'm off to enjoy the rest of the day.... and finish off a card for January's challenge on the HA blog....
