Hiyall, hope you all had a fab weekend and enjoyed the wonderful weather we had.

I'm really organised with my mom's birthday card this year, it's not till 02 July, but I don't know about you I usually leave family cards till the last minute and end up in a complete flap.

I was looking to do something a bit different (she's not much into cutie cards), so looking for a bit of inspiration, did a bit of blog hopping and came across this card on Katarina's blog. Her cards are lovely and it's well worth visiting her blog. This is my version and this is what I used:

Anna Griffin papers
Anna Griffin Flower Basket stamp
Anna Griffin Alphabet stamps for the sentiment
Anna Griffin Ribbon
Faber Castell pencils
Martha Stewart punch

I'm quite pleased with how it turned out, especially as I've had the Anna Griffin papers and stamps for ages and didn't know what to do with them. I think mom will like it (hope so anyway).x

Lovely card Sue. I sometimes struggle with non cute cards too. This is perfect though and I'm sure your mom will love it!
Hugs, Vicky -x-
