Happy Birthday Mum!

Here's a little card I made my Mum. I won't tell you how old, I mean, young she is....but it is written on the card! This little digi image was a freebie from a magazine. (Lilly of The Valley, I think) Came in a little pad with a few others I've already used over the last couple of years. Time really does fly! The birthday sentiment is a rub-on and the orange 'For You' sentiment is a stick on. I've coloured him with Promarkers. They sort of bled a little bit as you can see, this card it was printed on was not that good but I think it makes him look more 'furry!'
 The papers are from two different 6x6 paper stacks also freebies from magazines. Inside I've used off cuts from the same papers plus a bit of something else I had left over....but you can't see that yet because I used batteries in my camera, which came from one of those cheap £ shops....ten batteries in the packet for the price of eight, bargain! Not! I only took one picture!! and the camera shut down telling me to get better batteries! (too smart for it's own good!) Anyway, I'll add a few more pictures later....and if by magic, here they are!
 Inside there's also another sticker, 'Birthday Wishes' and a large punched out circle to write any message.
The orange bits of folded ribbon on the front is all that's left of another freebie from a crafting mag. One of the first ones I ever bought, so that's been in my stash for years! I've added some cup-cake ribbon too and three big green flowers fixed together with a brad, plus tiny punched out flowers from more scaps and added gem centres. Hiding behind the topper is a doily....which I'm sure was also a freebie. It's surprising how many freebies we can collect over the years! I've also added micro glitter fixed on using a Quickie Glue pen.
That's it! Have fun today. I'm off out walking dogs first thing...I might already be on the beach. Later taking mum shopping, then I'm out with more dogs and then taking mum out for a cream tea at the nursery, so she can choose some flowers for the garden. Bye for now! Later hoping to add this to some...
