Mum's Birthday Card and Woodland Walk

Hello Friends

Yesterday was a very special birthday - my Mum's.
Thankfully Mum has similar taste in cards to me so it was easy to
create one that would be her cup of tea.
I went with pastel tones, the paper is My Mind's Eye - Fancy That,
the dies are Marisa's Bouquet flowers,
5 x 7 Matting Basics, Sentiments 3 and Baby Buntings.

The Baby Buntings dies are not as long as pictured so it's two joined together
with the flowers covering up the join!
Baby Buntings is available here.
To celebrate Mum's birthday we enjoyed tea at a local tearoom and in
the evening a takeaway - Bella always enjoys those and no-one should cook
on their birthday!

Another thing Bella enjoys...her walks! Elliott came with me and took some photos.
Mushroom thingies growing on trees!

And the Bullaces are back...

And some cobnuts - Squirrels will be advancing on them soon!
I'm back in my City job today, not so much scenery sitting in an office but needs must!

Take care friends and please stop by tomorrow...
it's a very special FDD!

Lovely card for your Mum. It was my Dads birthday yesterday, my brother-in-laws & two colleagues (both called Nicola) all on the 15th which is quite unusual.

Really love Mum's Birthday card, so belated birthday wishes to her - the fungi growing on the tree, I understand that it produces wonderful markings in the wood, which turners of bowls etc. love to get their hands on. I have a couple and they are marked as 'spalted beech' and 'spalted oak'.
