This week has been full of major milestones. As well as my Aunt and Uncles 60th Wedding Anniversary, my wonderful Mum is 80 on Sunday.
She may be an Older Lady, but she has certainly grasped technology better than her daughter.
She is always the first one to text me on any special occasion, my birthday, Christmas, New Year, much to the amazement of my work colleagues.
She also checks out my blog every morning.
The reason for the early post was because I had made it to enter in the challenge over at The Stamp Man, where the challenge was Take Two Colours. Unfortunately I didn't get the post done in time so I decided that I would let Mum see the card in the flesh before I popped it on the blog.
I made it using a fabulous sketch that I found over at Inspirational Card Sketches.
Stamp and Create where the challenge is flowers.
I have used a couple of other Penny Black Butterfly, and mini Dragonfly stamps to finish the panel.
I am also entering this in to the challenge at Crafty Cardmakers, where the order of the day is Birthdays.
Today has ended up being a rather hectic one. I spent most of the day at Lavender Lane where I was demoing Brayers and Big and Juicy ink pads.
Thank you to all the lovely ladies who braved the lousy weather to come and spend time with us. It was wonderful to see you all, I hope you picked up plenty of tips and that you are happily playing with all your goodies.
After the Demo my daughter whisked me off to my Mum's birthday party. Unfortunately most of the guests had had to go home but it was great to catch up with family - it's one of the few times when we all manage to get together. It's a shame that the sun didn't shine as well earlier in the afternoon when my Bro was cooking the BBQ.
Must close now or I will be too tired to link the card to the relevant challenges.
Hope you have had a great day. thanks for stopping by.
Love and hugs
