Mum's Birthday and Wedding Cards

Happy Friday afternoon everyone!! - nearly the weekend.....

A couple of weeks back I posted some photos of my mum's wedding, but what I haven't yet posted is the wedding card I made for her and also one that I made for my sister to give to Mum.  It was also our Mum's birthday that day too so I also made cards for my sis and I to give her.  Thought it was about time I posted them as I haven't been good a posting in the last week or so - probably something to do with Xmas cards!!!  So here they are:-

My birthday card for Mum

I used Ooh La La paper collection from Craftwork Cards for this one.

My Sister's birthday card for Mum

My sister had seen a card that I'd made using the kraft paper and with the stitching detail and said she loved it and could I do that same theme for Mum's birthday card - she was really pleased with the card!

My Wedding card for Mum and Tony

I wanted to have blue on the wedding card as I knew that mum's dress was blue - albeit navy - and I thought that navy wouldn't look quite right on a wedding card (but I'm sure someone out there in blogland could prove me very wrong!!!!)

My Sister's Wedding card for Mum and Tony:-

My sis said to me that she wanted a wedding cake on her card - and so this is what I did.  I cut out the tiers myself from this gorgeous sparkly wrapping paper that I've had for donkey's years!  The sparkle doesn't show up that great in this photo though!

So there you go a few cards that I made a while back hope this makes up for not posting for a little while!!

We haven't AS YET got any snow in my part of Essex........but I think its coming this weekend.

Have a great weekend - Strictly final tomorrow - I'm so excited - I've loved Matt all along and think that the judges have been quite harsh on him!  Mind you Kara and Pamela are also fantastic dancers and so I can't call it - who knows who will win they all deserve it.

Happy Crafting

soooo excited, I love watching Strictly. I don't really mind who wins this year as all the finalists are fantastic dancers, but if I had to choose it would be Kara and Artem. Enjoy the show.
