Happy Birthday Mum

I recently made a special card for my Mum's birthday.  I used an old Stampin' Up! stamp set as I just love "A Rose Is A Rose", especially because it can be used for quite a few different occasions and in so many colour combos :)  This card uses a whole sheet of A4 cardstock.

Hope you enjoy the pictures below:

My Mum loves shrimps and bananas, so here's a little something for her sweet tooth, lol.


Enjoy your day.

Pet Thank You Card

Hope you've all had a good weekend.  The weather here has been glorious :)  We combined our weekend with camping and shih tzus, what a fun time we had! lol.

So, here's the card I gave to the lady who organised the shih tzu event.  Hope she will treasure the card :)

Bye for now,

Thank You Mandy

Hi there,

Today is a very special day... we're off to a place to meet up with lots of other shih tzus!  I'm not sure what we'll make of it, whether Riley will have a go at everything, but we're definitely looking forward to a fun day ahead!

I have made a Thank You card for the lady that has helped to organise this event.  She has two gorgeous shih tzus, Coco and Hugo, so I made a card to resemble her cuties.

Come back tomorrow to see the card...

Here's a sneak peek:


Hope you have a great weekend.  Until tomorrow...
