Afternoon All,

I hope you're all well on this rather miserable (weather wise!) day?  Roll on spring time ay!!

It's my Mums birthday today - Happy Birthday Mum!! - and here's the card I made for her...

Side view...

My Mum absolutely loves travelling and holidays.  Since her 50th birthday she's been to Australia twice, Vietnam, Thailand and India but to name a few countries!!  I did have a different idea in mind for her card, I bought new stamps and everything and then changed my mind, oops!  Oh well, I'm sure I'll need the other stamps for cards in the future anyway, lol!!  Just don't tell Hubby!!

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekends,
See you soon,
Much love,
