Hi friends, I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas break. Like so many of you, we are now getting back into the swing of work commitments and today is the day all our Christmas decorations go back into the attic for another year.
This weekend was a fun one for our family as we celebrated with a massive birthday party for 5 of us! It was actually kind of funny, because there were more of us as the 'birthday guests' than non-birthday guests! But given crazy travel schedules and sports commitments, it just made sense to combine parties for a large group of us.
The card I'm sharing today is the one I made for my Mom. Her birthday was back in September and she has patiently been waiting for the celebration, so I thought she deserved a special card. I used one of the same Ellen Hutson metal die collections that I used for one of the Christmas cards I shared in December. This particular die set has 7 different dies, and several of them, such as the 'happy' die I used in this card, work beyond the Christmas season giving the die a lot of versatility.
If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know. I have finally figured out how to leave replies on my blog comments, so if you ask a question, I will get back to you in the comments.
