Happy 80th Birthday Mum! - She's a Sweet and Sassy Lady !

So my family has a very special birthday to celebrate.

My mum is 80 years young today.  I can barely believe it as she is a very youthful 80 year old.  We spoilt her rotten at the weekend.  I would love to be there with her today to celebrate, but unfortunately that isn't possible.  But we will be there in spirit.  She is being taken out for slap up meal by some special friends.

I spent some time searching around for an appropriate birthday sentiment for her card and finally settled on this one. I rather liked it. 

One of the perks of owning a foiling machine means that you can create cards with personalised sentiments that really do mean something to you.

I laser printed the sentiment and foiled with Gold heat resistant foil using my foiling machine.

Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies were used to create the heart shaped topper.  My Large Numbers Framelits Dies came up trumps yet again.  These dies are so great to have on hand ready for those landmark birthdays.  I think they are a great investment as I have used them time and time again.

I also laser printed and foiled the little "Happy Birthday" banner.

Blooms and Wishes made an appearance yet again.  Using a recipe of complimentary colours that really work well together, I stamped up the top layer of Whisper White card stock with lots of pretty flowers.

I spent a little time putting everything in its place before finally deciding upon the arrangement that worked best and sticking it all down.

I am really pleased with the way it all came together.

Hope she likes it !!

I am off to work later today - so no playing in the craft room for me today.  But I do have a nice little card ready to share tomorrow, so please pop back again.
