well she does love daffodils...

Happy Birthday Mum!! Hope you have a wonderful time at the seaside and at the shows...and I can't wait to see you tomorrow :)

As promised, here is the card I made for my Mum's birthday.

Its one of those cards which is also an envelope and the sides all fold back to enable it to stand up. The whole thing is then tied with a gorgeous golden ribbon. Its made using K&Co papers, Heidi Swapp ribbon and stickles. The stamps are by Hero Arts (text) and Autumn Leaves and stamped in Adirondack ink. The colours have come out a bit garish as I had to photograph it in gloom...but you get the idea, right?

And just as an example of how different you can make 2 cards using the same paper...here is the card I made her a couple of Birthday's ago...

...well she really does love daffodils!! ;)

if you've made any cards using this paper...i'd love to see your versions...do attach them in the comments below! :)
