Mum's birthday card

It's mum's birthday tomorrow. A few days ago I had an idea of making her a card on the robo, using a template kindly Shirley Anne on UKS. I had a trial go and intended to make a better version today. The way things are going, time is going to run out (getting ready for the onslaught of the decorators tomorrow - and various other things I need to get done while I'm able, except that my back is hurting and I'm tired, because I didn't sleep at all well last night - in fact from about 3.00 am I was watching the recording of Holby City because I couldn't sleep).

Anyway, back to mum's card - I've decided in the end to use the 'trial' one, with a few flowers and Poundland bling added.

Why is it that it's always difficult to make cards for those nearet and dearest? I think it's because we want them to be extra special and somehow mine never seem to turn out like that.

Tomorrow is tinged with sadness, because it will be four years ago since dad died.


  1. Love the card for your mum Hazel it is beautiful...I'm sure she will love it. Just catching up with all of your recent pics and creations and they are all fab as usual. Especially love the 'wet' photo lol.

    Hope you catch up on your sleep soon and feel better and I will be thinking of you tomorrow...hope the day isn't too difficult for you. ((hugs))
