Mum's Birthday Card

Obviously I couldn't share this one until I had presented it to my mum, but here is the birthday card I made for her this year. Those who have read my blog for a while will know that cardmaking is not my strong point, but I like to have a go now and then for important events, usually the birthday's of my immediate family. I decided to make things easier for myself by using a cardmap from Page Maps, couldn't tell you which one it was now I'm afraid and it didn't end up looking much like the sketch in the end, but it was great as a starting point when you are less than confident like me! So here it is (I couldn't resist the scrapper's urge to include a photo of my mum inside)...

And here are a few photos of us around the dinner table...

I've been taking my Scrap Your Day photos - I have now taken July and August photos, though have yet to scrap my July ones yet! Might try and get onto that this week. I think this is going to be such a great project to look back at when its done :)

  1. I think it was a lovely touch to add a piccy of your Mum! I'm just starting cardmaking, though not much good yet. Still I'm enjoying it.. think i'll nab your idea in a family card though and add a pic too, if you don't mind! :-)
