My Mums Birthday

Morning all....Hope you had a lovely weekend.

It was my Mums birthday yesterday and we all got together for a family BBQ and yes we were very lucky that the sun was out,we all had a great day,came home with a very full up tummy,serves me right with 2 lots of pudding and birthday cake lol....

When the last new lot of girlie LOTV stamps came out I knew instantly what I wanted to use on my Mums birthday card,she loves daisys and so had to use the adorable Daisy chain image.

I made my daughter Katie a easter bonnet back in 2009,which she said she did'nt want any more so carefully took of the daisys,so could recycle on my Mums card.
