Mum's Birthday Card


Goodmorning to everyone reading today. I finally have a new project to show you! A birthday card for my Mum. For the colours on this card I used different shades of pinks and brown. I coloured it with my SU ink pads (Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise)and my aqua painter. I outlined with my Stampin' write markers. The laces and papers and embellishments are all scraps from my stash.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations - Distressing
SSDS - Girly
Creative Card Crew - Distressing
I made this card especially for my Mum for her birthday. I wanted it to be very special as it was a joint card from all of us. I used Tilda with a rose because Mum loves roses. We gave my Mum this gorgeous white cane outdoor setting which she loved. She has been wanting one for ages and could not find one in Tamworth so we bought it at the Gold Coast and it came down on our truck when we moved house. We made her stay inside while we set it up and surprised her...here is a little pic to show you what it looks like. (Not the best photo, but you get the idea.)
We have finally moved house and are in the middle of unpacking all of our boxes. It has been a very busy time. Here is a picture of our front paddock. It is lovely and green here at the moment. How big is this old gum tree! It is nice to be out of the city and surrounded by nature. I might post some more pics over the next few weeks and show you around a bit!

I hope you have a lovely day today. Thanks very much for visiting and take care.
