Happy Birthday Mum


Today it's my mums birthday.

She really loves Butterflies, so it was a great opportunity for me to use my Swallowtail butterfly stamp from Stampin Up. I painted with watercolours, then clear embossed the darker colours to make them really stand out.



It was a big decision whether or not to add her age, it's always something she's been really sensitive about, but I decided what the heck, it says it's her 70th on the party invites, so I went with it, as everyone now knows how old she is LOL.

I'm very lucky to still have my mum when so many of my friends have lost theirs. We've had our differences over the years of course, but she's always been there for me, no matter how awkward things have been between us at times. She's bailed me out of more difficult situations than I can remember, stood by me no matter what and given me sound words of advice, although not always heeded at my cost.

Happy 70th Birthday mum xxx

Authors Note:
Opps just realised I've used the word "She" quite a lot, I can hear mum now, saying
"Who's She? The cats mother!"
