Happy Birthday Mummy!

Morning all, well today is my mums birthday.  I should be out the door by now but my big girl feels poorly and decided that she didn't want to go to ballet today, It makes me sad that she doesn't want to go, but on the other side she is quite congested and with how cold it is here, its probably best that she stays in! 

Tonight we have my Mum, Dad and Sister over for dinner (well take away!) as its mums birthday, Some of you may have seen the card I made yesterday for my mum, I was going to do that one from the girls, but Amelia was insistent that she chose her own card for Nanny!  Its a good job I have a stash at the moment, cause time would not be on my side if I needed to make another card! 

I made this one a while back, way before we moved.  This stamp is from a set I purchased from Quixotic Paperie, its the Elizabeth Bell for SCACD its from a set called 'Peekers' and she is called Daydreaming.  I can't give you any ideas as to what colours I used, although I did keep her very simple! I wanted to give this card to Amelia's ballet teacher for her birthday but Im not sure when that is! This was one of the 1st images that I tried to get the colours blended properly when using Copics! 

I think I was most impressed with the shadow! and her skirt!
 I would like to enter her into the following challenges;

Alphabet Challenge Blog - You Choose (Anything Goes)

Winter Wonderland - Birthday Wishes

Well I hope you like her, I can't wait to read what you think!

She is a cutie. I can see why you wanted save it for a dance teacher, but I can also see why your daughter wanted it for her Nanny.

It is really awesome. I love the background.
