Mum's Birthday Cards

Evening All. Now I know it's was my mum's birthday last week - and so do you cos I told you! But, I hadn't shared the cards that I'd made for her yet and also, I've not blogged for a few days and I'm getting withdrawal symptoms LOL! So - here they are:

I used papers from the SWALK CD on both cards and a SWALK image on the one from me - I really do love these little characters, so adorable! The one for Nanny, that I made from Sam, has got an Elzybell's image on it and says 'Group Hug, Anyone?' I used this image because when my aunt, Betty (my mum's sister, who recently passed away) was last here and staying at my mum's, whenever Sam was there too, he would always go into the kitchen to the pair of them and say 'Group Hug' and they'd all have to have a cuddle. I thought it would be quite a nice touch to make a reference to Bet as it's the first birthday that mum's had that she wouldn't have a card from her and luckily, mum knew exactly why I'd use the image and what I was referring to, so it wasn't lost on her!! Well, that's all folks - I'm off to craft some more! Bye for now.......x


  1. Such lovely cards... love both of them...sure your mum loved them. Love the way you have done the sentiment in fluffy white. And group hug - that is so sweet!
