Happy Birthday Mum!

It was my Mum's birthday yesterday. Penny and I had a great chat on the phone to her last night and will see her in 5 wks when she and Dad come to visit. We are then visiting Adelaide in June. Above is the card I made for her at a Stampin' Up party a couple of weeks ago. I also stamped the envelope which Mum and I thought looked most effective.
Below is another birthday card that I made for my godmother in Adelaide using some new stamps. Not so pleased with the colours but it is still bright and cheery.
Now I am busy getting ready for the scrapbooking retreat next weekend. Can hardly wait - 2 nights of food, fun, laughter and a bit of scrapbooking.
