For my mum

Hi Bloggers, long time no blog!!

I have been AWOL for months, been really busy with work and life in generally, not had a lot of time for crafting of late and my Mojo has been non - existent.

Anyway, my sister has asked me to make her a card for her to give our mum for her birthday on Saturday (It's OK, she does not look at my blog), birds or butterflies was the theme so I could not resist using the Tim Holtz Birdcage die!! Gotta say, I am so pleased I got this die, it is so beautiful, I cut mine out of grungeboard and some really old DSP I bought when I first started crafting, not sure who the manufacturer is, it was a cheap deal if i remember rightly!! I overstamped the DSP on the Birdcage with Sanded background stamp by Stampin Up, love this stamp, such a must have!

The sentiment frame is also a Tim holtz die cut that comes with a tag, love it!! The mum sentiment is from a Waltzing mouse set, Roses in Bloom.

I am entering my card into the Cute Card Thursday challenge which this week is anything goes. I am hoping to start entering challenges again, I do miss it.

Anyway, I hope you like the card, thanks for looking, please feel free to leave a comment as I love reading them.
