Mum's Birthday Card

It was my Mum's Birthday on Thursday 18th. Luckily for us it usually falls during half term week so we take the opportunity to go and stay for a few days so that we can be there for her birthday and also my mum's house makes a good base camp for then going off to visit other family and friends that live over that way and further afield.

We went over on Wednesday and after dropping most of our stuff of at Mums', the kids and I went through to my friend Shaeron's who's just moved from Bradford to Knaresborough. It was a very foggy drive but it was worth it to catch up as we haven't seen each other in an age. We had a lovely lunch and then a walk to the ruined castle before setting off back to Bradford.

Thursday was of course my Mums' birthday. This is the card I made for her. I used my favourite papers by My Minds Eye and my favourite stamp which is a Stampavie Sarah Kay stamp. I used paper punches to make the flowers and the leaves and wording at the bottom are My Minds Eye rub ons. For the inside I used the Birthday Cake stamp that Josh bought me for my birthday.
To celebrate my Mums' birthday we went out for lunch, there was seven of us all together, my Uncle Don, Auntie Ann, my Gran, Mum, Ellie, Josh and little me. It was a lovely meal and Josh coped really well with it all which is always a bonus.
In the evening Mum, Auntie Ann and I went to watch an all male pantomime in Marsden called the Wizard of Ossett. It was so funny and very well done. I was suitably impressed and we all had a great evening.
On Friday it was back over to Harrogate to visit my Dad and his wife. Another lovely lunch and a walk followed by a play in the local park.
Saturday morning we headed back home in time for Ellie to go to her swimming lesson in the afternoon. So a very busy week lots of fun.
