Special Birthday!

Afternoon blogging buddies.

Where's the sun gone? I'm back in a cardie, it really is quite nippy here, I thought they'd promised us a warmer week!

Mustn't grumble I suppose, at least it's not chucking it down, I guess it could be a lot worse.

Well believe it or not, I've started to make one or two Christmas cards, and you know how much I love making those...not!

My mojo takes a hike at the mere mention of the flippin' things, oh how I despise making them, but, I will make an extreme effort to get my head around one or two designs, well 'extreme' might be pushing it a bit,  will a bit of a dabble do?

It's not a Chrissy card I'm showing you today though, this is much more my cup of tea, do excuse the picture quality, I took it last week when it was even duller than it is today!

I've made this for me and hubby to give to our son's Mother-in-law on her 70th birthday.

I was told she didn't want anything with '70' on so although it's not mentioned on the front, it's on the little message card inside the envy, she really loved it apparently, so happy days!

As usual, card recipe below, I do hope you like it and thanks for dropping by.

Hi Jacee this is extremely beautiful, I am a big lover of Lilac, when I was little my mum had a couple of Lilac trees in the garden the smell was heavenly so seeing this creation has brought me so much joy, the little bow, the decorative edging and little envelope are all perfection in my eyes, I love it so much.

I love that die-cut frame and the cute little envelope with the message inside! Gorgeous image as well! I had to chuckle when you said you hate making Christmas cards - they are my favourite to make! I just love that there are so many cute Christmas images around and I always break out the glitter!

Such a pretty card,my fav colours

MaryH said...

You're in a cardigan, and we're still using the a/c (although we've been promised some cooler for tomorrow & next week!) Love this gorgeous spray of lavender hyacinth. Can almost smell it's wonderful fragrance. The bright pop of green leaves against the soft lavender looks so pretty, and love the tiny matching envie too. Beautiful framing and just a wonderful look on this card. I love florals, but Christmas cards are fun too! (and now we have Fall & Halloween coming, but don't think you Brits celebrate Halloween as we Yanks do). TFS & Happy wkend.
