Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all enjoying this unexpected but delightful weather, we were able to sit outside in the garden and read our books for a while yesterday afternoon, at the moment we are taking every opportunity to make the most of a quiet few minutes, which I really feel I need at the moment.
We are travelling over to Mum's tomorrow to sort a few things out, we have an appointment with the Funeral director, we are also going to Mum's chosen place to choose a spot for her ashes. Paul is still unable to drive so thankfully our Becca is taking the day off to drive us over, I will be relieved to get these things done but I am very apprehensive about going to Mum's house, we have to choose her outfit etc which is going to be really hard, although there is no shortage of choice, to say Mum had a 'thing' for clothes is an understatement. We will have an awful lot to donate to charity, I bet at least a third of it will still have tags on. Luckily my sisters will be there so we will go through things together, hopefully having a giggle about some of the things we find.
Today's card is an 18th Birthday card for a girl that isn't really 'girly', so no Flowers, shoes, handbags etc, I remembered that I had some lovely card from SU a few years back that had almost a 'Camoflage' pattern with peachy pinks and gold, so I used that and some gold Mirri card to mat and layer and die cut some of the numbers and letters with, I couldn't really capture the shine on camera but it looked really effective, so I was pleased with how the card turned out. I will say that I love these new label shapes from Stampin Up!
I hope that you all have an enjoyable day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
