Happy Birthday, Mum!

Hello!

Hope everyone's alright? We're having some horrible weather here in the UK at the moment, it hasn't been too bad here up North but there's been lots of flooding in the South although it does look like it's coming this way! I went into town after work today and it was only raining a little bit when I left but it was chucking it down and so windy when I got into town that I was nearly blown into traffic! I was very glad to get home and get into my nice warm pyjamas!

We had a bit of an exhausting weekend as myself and my sister were helping my Mum pack up everything in her house because she's moving at the beginning of March. She moving into a bungalow just down the street and myself and my sister obviously don't live there any more and she doesn't need a three bedroom house to herself.
I got a bit upset when we took apart my old bed because we'd lived there for about 15 years so it was quite sad that I didn't have a proper bed at Mum's anymore! =( I don't know what I'll be like on moving day, I just be in tears the entire time probably!

In other news! We (LOTV) were on Create and Craft TV on Monday with lots of lovely new Art and Paper pads and they were so popular C&C had to cancel the afternoon show because there wasn't enough stock left!
I'd sent my little topiary to Dawny to take on the show as a sample because it used two of the new pads and she said lots of people at C&C were commenting on it and I've had some lovely comments from customers too which is really nice! =D My Mum recorded the show and keeps showing the bit with my tree to everyone who goes round!

It was also Mum's birthday yesterday (21 again!) so I thought I'd show you the card I made her from myself and my sister.


I used Tiddly Inks' 'Anna Belle Birthday Wishes' digi stamp, the papers are 'Perfect Pair' and 'Promises' from LOTV, the sentiment is also LOTV 'Simply Sophisticated' the butterflies are Cheery Lynn 'Exotic Butterflies Small', the banner is La La Land 'Folding Banners' and the oval behind the image is Spellbinders 'Floral Ovals'


I always have the urge to colour TI images with red hair and I don't know why but this time it worked our great as my Mum has red hair! I coloured her using Apricot, Aubergine, Blush, Bright Green, Ginger, Leaf Green, Lime Green, Lime Zest, Maroon, Oatmeal, Pear Green, Plum and Yellow Promarkers.

Right, I'm off to make myself another cup of tea and either cuddle up in bed with Bram Stoker's 'Dracula' or do some Distress Ink colouring.

Hope you like the card!
