Mum's Birthday!

Evening all!

Today is my mum's birthday so I want to wish her a happy birthday (I already did this morning on the telephone but you know what I mean!). It is now safe to show you the card I made her as I know she's opened it now!

I got a lovely package from Elizabeth at Elzybells last week, filled with lots of lovely stamps. I'm still so sad that they are soon going to be no longer! :-( I couldn't wait to ink some of them up though so I decided to use some of them for my mum's birthday card!

And here's the finished result:

....and a view of the inside to show you. I have decided I like decorating the inside to compliment the outside, it finishes it off so much better!

I'm not too happy with the quality of the pictures I've taken though. It looks a bit washed out, although I assure you it looks better IRL, especially the ribbon. For some reason it looks really pale!


Image: Elzybells Floral Fervour set

CS: SU Kraft & Choc Chip

Sentiment: Elzybells Fervour sentiments & SU Sincere Salutations

Tools: Sponges for distressing

Misc: Ribbon from hobbycraft, Bronze Stickles, SU Choc Chip ink pad

Now I don't think you can see the glitter properly on the dandelions heads, but I can assure you it does sparkle more IRL!

Well I was happy with the end result. I just hope my mum was too!

I've had a really really hectic day at work, only tomorrow to go then I can have a day off, and I've got a pedicure and Minx nails booked in! Can't wait to be pampered! Then next week I go away with my mum to Ragdale Hall for a few night! Bliss!! I think we might even take some craft stash with us so we can have some creative time in the evening!

Thanks for stopping by today and for any comments you may leave! I really do appreciate them.

Going to have a cuppa and watch eastenders now!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~

Beautiful card for your mum. I didn't realise Elzybells was closing - that's very sad, I do love Elizabeth's stamps.
