A Card For Mum.

I'm sooo glad we have no snow, it did tease us with loads of flakes (Now it'll be knee deep by morning!)  And it's my brother's birthday today, so, happy birthday..
.Here's a card I made for my mum. She had a leak, well, it was her ceiling what had the leak, she didn't see the big bulge hanging down over her head when she was sewing the family tree... 
Mum got up, Hubby touched it, I yelled "don't!" and the next minute the bubble burst and drenched every thing! Mum had noticed the wall was wet but thought, 'oh, maybe it's the rain, we've had so much lately' but no, it was a tiny leak, probably been there for well over ten years!  Anyway, she had to pay for the pipe to be repaired, but, the insurance paid for her to have a whole new ceiling,  (as there was a tiny trace of asbestos found in it when they cut a hole in it) new coving, new wall paper and the whole room repainted! They even said they'd put her up in a hotel while they did it and put her furniture into storage, there was even talk of a new carpet, new curtains to one window and the chair that was soaked to be recovered, but mum said no to most of  those...(why??? yes, loonies run in our family! I think she agreed to them cleaning the carpet instead... I would've had a new carpet!) Anyway, they've just got to finish off the wall papering and it's done, her whole room, which is quite long, all redecorated!
Anyway, here's the card... I've used T.H Bird Cage Die-cut, the ribbon was on another bought card, which I took off and saved some time back, and I suddenly found it, so had to use it. Then I  fixed the flower on with a dob of silicone glue and added a sequin to the gold bow. The papers are very nice, flowery and 'birdie' but I can't find the pack, to tell you it's name right now...and if you could see the state of my craft room at the moment you'd understand why! Found them!!! It was a freebie pack from Cardmaking & PaperCraft called Floral Fantasy by Louise Tiler, spring designs.
The Font: is a freebie, it's called Janda Happy Day and you can download it HERE or just google the name. That's it for now, thank you for stopping by. Hope to add this to a few...
