Happy Birthday Mum

Happy Tuesday Friends,



Another quick post today (oh well it started out quick) and a break away from my Christmas Cards & shock horror no Magnolia images. My wonderful Mother celebrated her 70th Birthday on the 10th December, she had me very late in life (not really lol). I wanted to make her something special, so of course another Easel card. I dusted off my much loved but very neglected Cricut Die Cutting machine and came up with this little gift set in Mum's favourite colours.

Cricut Cartridges used - Storybook for Age 70, Lyrical Letters for Mum, Plantin Schoolbook for Ball Gift Bag & SVG cuts for the Daffodil on the Gift bag.

Papers by Lilac Ave Collection 6x6 pad - Kaisercraft, Border punch, fronds & fern by MS, lots of stickles, Spellbinder Nesties - Circles & Label, Copic airbrush system, Silk Ribbon, flowers - Hydrarangers from Busy Becs (sample pack - thanks Bec I love them) with pearl button  (from stash) glued in for flower centre, Yellow Rose - Prima & Gardenia - Petaloo, Happy stamp by Hero Arts & Sentiment stamp by Stamp It Up - Australia.

The sentiment reads
It's not how old you are, it's how loved you are that counts.

2 posts in 2 days - a record for me.
I have some more Christmas Cards for you to see later in the week.
Have a wonderful week and thanks so much for stopping by.

Aw, Jodie, this is so beautiful, your Mum is going to love it. So many details make this such a lovely gift bag and matching card. Flowers are an extra sepecial touch. So nice to see the pastel colors, I'm tiring of the holiday colors a little. Just a beautiful presentation from such a sweet daughter.
