Mum's Birthday

Good Afternoon everyone. How can you tell when Deb is off work?  The weather is lousy that's how.  It was gorgeous yesterday while I was in work and I was looking forward to getting out in the garden.   I went to mums instead and took her into Ashton to do a bit of shopping.   As soon as we parked up the heavens opened and we got drenched walking to the shops.  So we had to cheer ourselves up with a pot of tea and a wimberry charlotte,  yummy!

Got back around 2.30 and got cracking on this card for mum's 70th birthday on Thursday.  I did try to make one at the weekend but my mojo had left me and the card ended up in the bin.

You should see the state of my table now though.  It looks like a bomb has hit.  I'll just shut the door on it and pretend its not there lol.

I've used my new LOTV stamp 'On Tiptoe' and coloured with Promarkers.  I've used the sentiment from LOTV too.  The image and sentiment are matted onto glitter card from Wilkinsons  The papers are Nitwit Papers but sorry can't remember the name. I've matted the papers onto silver mirri and added ribbon, lace and flowers from my stash.  I've added a couple of my long lost and forgotten peel off butterflies as mum loves butterflies and bees and I always include one somewhere on her cards.  The sketch is from Sketch and Stash and is designed by the lovely Vicky

Right off to make tea, Chris is going to be late back tonight as he's been working down in Bristol so hope you all have a lovely evening and the weather is a bit better tomorrow.

I am entering this card into these challenges:

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Ribbon and Bows
House of Gilli - Ribbon and Bows
The Corrosive Challenge - Ribbon and Bows
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Things with wings
Simply Create - Fly with us
The Stamp Man - Butterflies or Dragonflies

Hope your Mum has a lovely birthday. The colours of your fairy are just gorgeous & I like the way you've used those butterflies. Your calendar sentiment is brilliant too.
The weather has been dreadful here in the Beacons too - hail at times! (It is midsummer is it not?)
