Last week Mum turned another year older, to a number I'm sure she'd prefer I not disclose. There was mention that her age would now be going backwards with each year. ;)
We celebrated with dinner at Bar Nonno, a new-to-us place suggested by my sister. With lots of chatting, laughs and dueling conversations, it was a great evening. I know the others think the same because I received three different text messages the next day - from Mum, Dad and Jenna - telling me so!
I can't help thinking these family dinners may have peaked though, as little Chip's arrival will not make for relaxing conversation and dining in the near future. ;)
I often forget to photograph the cards I make, frequently finishing them not long before we head out the door with gift in hand. So while these might be phone photos in lousy light with messy desk in background, at least I remembered this time!
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the phrase and back of the card out of double-sided patterned paper, giving me the blue dot and pink contrast. The font used is ChunkFive. I used a white cardstock insert for an easy to write on surface, attaching the message with dimensional adhesive. Some pearl bling, because Mum loves adding bling to cards, as a finishing touch.
Happy Birthday Mum! Glad you had a wonderful evening.
