65th Birthday

It's my mums birthday today and she is 65, bless her!!  So I made her this flowery card.  The background and images have been coloured with pan pastels and trying to tie a bow left handed when you are right handed is quite hard!!!

This month over at Country View Crafts, their challenge is entitled 'how does your garden grow?'  Well this is the closest I shall be getting to something flowery so I am entering my mums card!!!

***Edited*** Pleased to report that she liked it!!

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
