Mum’s birthday card…


In 1947 in a village in deepest Devon called Woolfardisworthy (pronounced Woolsery – go figure) this lovely lady was born to May and Alan Dennis, a third daughter Helen Mary.

and of course she is my mum.

Here is the card that I have made for her for her birthday on wednesday. In light of what is happening with Dad she doesn’t want to celebrate particularly so it’s a fairly straightforward one.


The background paper was made in Susi’s fab caught in crystal class that she did for us at the retreat and I was so pleased with it thanks Susi Red heart

I then used the resist technique on the topper with clear heat embossing and distress inks. I used a stamp that I had as a freebie from this months papercraft inspirations mag. I love the cute butterfly. The sentiment stamp is one from PaperArtsy and the flower is Papermania with a Prima pebble.

I enjoyed it, although the elements weren’t all made together and actually I think I liked it better for being quick to put together.


  1. I love the photo of your Mum, I hope you're going to scrap it at some point, and I am sure your Mum will be thrilled with her card, it is very pretty and you made a fab job of the CIC!

  2. Oh Jen its gorgeous, she will love it and it IS special,

    Glad you told us how to pronounce that unspeakable word!

  3. This is lovely. :) I need to find things to use my CIC on.


Aren't you lovely, you have made me smile =)
