Happy Birthday Mum

Hi All.  Today is my mum's birthday (Happy Birthday Mum!) and I wanted to share the card that I made for her.  We are both fans of Craftwork Cards, so I decided to use one of their kits - Time Flies.  Unfortunately the photo doesn't do the beautiful papers justice.  It was quite a straightforward card to made, and I'm really happy how it turned out.  I know my mum really liked it, which is the main thing.

To quote the comedian Alan Carr, "what a week it's been!"  Emily and I have both been ill with a rather nasty virus.  I took Tuesday off work because I felt so dreadful, only to receive a phone call and a few texts messages to say that we were having a two day Ofsted inspection starting the following day.  Needless to say, I couldn't not go in.  It was one of the most stressful weeks of my life!  We won't know anything for a couple of weeks, so fingers crossed!

I was supposed to go on a Uni visit with Emily today, but neither of us felt up to it.  Luckily it wasn't one she was really considering.  I spent the afternoon finishing off some of my Christmas cards (still got quite a few to make!).

Thanks so much for the lovely comments from my previous post.  Have a great weekend and thanks for dropping by.

Take care

  1. Such a beautiful card, Michelle - your mum certainly is lucky.
    Sorry to hear you've both been poorly, and hope you're on the mend now.
    See you soon

  2. What a beautiful card, such lovely papers, I bet your mum loved it.

  3. Hi Michelle . . .just dropping by to say HELLO as a fellow Inkcredibles team member.

    Your butterfly card is just amazing. I hope you feel better since you posted.

  4. Sending great big hugs Michelle - it sounds as if you've been having a dreadful time! It doesn't matter about the uni visit of course, you can always do it another time if Emily feels it's important, but I feel for you having to go in and be organised for the ofsted inspection. I'm sure you'll be relieved when this weekend comes round. I love your feminine card in those beautiful colours and hope your mum had a lovely birthday. Vicky x
