Happy 70th Birthday

Hi everyone, I'm here to share a card I made for my sister-in-law's mum, earlier this week. I've used the House Mouse triple cd for this one...

I've added some ribbon, a doily and some pearly wires (don't know what the proper name for these is). I used black to mat everything as I think it's a great contrast to the pink. I added glitter peeloffs for the age.

I would like to enter this for the following:-
House Mouse and friends - Food

Thank you for visiting, I don't seem to have been crafting much lately, although I have recently had a week away in Lanzarote, followed by a weekend in London to see a show. I also took my daughter Rachel back to Derby to visit a mother and toddler group she had been volunteering with (or Rachel's fan club as I now call them) and to collect the last of her work from the university. She's got a 2:1 in Early Childhood Studies but we have to wait until January for her Graduation ceremony. We're really proud of her and I know her dad would have been too.

Hopefully I'll get some more cards made soon, as well as get started on a scrapbook of Lanzarote. Probably not today though...I weeded the patio yesterday and have overdone it and caused my fibromyalgia to flare again. Enjoy the sunshine everyone...
