Happy Birthday Mum

It's been a while since I last blogged, but hopefully we are now straighter (after all of the alterations and decorating), I should be getting back to normal. Well that is until we start looking after our gorgeous Grandson two days a week from February, when my daughter returns to work. I also had a small operation on my back last week, which I'm glad to say has healed very well. Anyway onto my card today which is for my Mum's birthday today. I've used The Janet Kruskamp Collection CD from Joanna Sheen for the 8x8 decoupage card, using gold mirror card for the matting. The die cut doily is from tonic, the happy birthday from Sue Wilson, the fern from Tattered Lace and the flowers are from a die that I have had so long that I can't remember who's it was. I would like to enter this into the CD Sunday challenge this week which is Wild Flowers.

Thank you for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

a really beautiful card Sue - I love the image and I'm sure your mum does too! Glad to hear that your operation went well - make sure you rest it now! Glad to hear your alterations and decorating is complete - mine is still happening! Can't wait for the end of the week when my bedroom should be finished - then we have a break planned for a few months!!! Big hugs to you! Rachel x

Beautiful card and the lovely image is set of so well with the interesting combination of dies from various sources. A clever bit of 'mixing it up'.

Very pretty and happy birthday to your Mum. I'm sure she loves her card. Glad to hear you are recovering well and things are settling down to some normality for you. Love all the different dies you have used.
