Happy Birthday Mum!



Happy Friday Eve!  We're having a bit of a whirlwind week over here. College orientation for Ryan on Sunday through Monday...celebrating my mum's 77th birthday yesterday and ending the week on Saturday with Ryan's graduation party.  So...I'm going to make it quick today. We celebrated with my mum yesterday with a few presents and dinner with all of us.  I love that my brothers and their families live in the same city. We all went out to dinner together last night to celebrate my beautiful mum. Love, love, love her.

This is the card that went with her present. Played along with two challenges:  Inspired by All the Little Things and AAA Water Color challenge.  Love how vibrant the water colors look against the navy.

Your card nearly has a denim look to it, Lynn - very fresh, and a sweet little water-colored wish! LOve the bouquet in that photo! Happy birthday to Mum - I know I don't have to tell you how lucky you are to have her! xx

Happy Birthday to your Mom Lynn, tell her she looks fabulous for me. :) Your card is amazing, perfect for Inspired By All The Little Things and your watercolouring is such a soft and perfect addition. Thank you for joining us at both challenges! xo

Love how the bright colours pop on the navy! I'm sure your mom loved it! As for the whirlwind - well, with all that's going on, I'm surprised you even have time for cardmaking (but I'm glad you do!). So glad to hear of all these happy occasions! Enjoy!

Sounds like a fabulous family weekend ahead, Lynn! Love this card especially, as you said, how vibrant the watercolors look against the navy.

Oh Lynn! I'll bet your mom loved this pretty card. Your watercoloring is impeccable, and against the navy, it's perfect. The wonky frame is a sweet whimsical touch too. Wonderful card, and birthday wishes to your mom. Take time to breathe! Bev
