Slightly behind but thought you would like to see two special birthday cards I made in November. This one was for my mother.
A Coffee and Walnut cake with one candle for each whole decade...
And here is the birthday girl herself with her eldest grandson.
And this card was for my father.
I made the marbled paper a long time ago and it reminded me of the sea so I added real sand, tiny shells and seaweed. I really love tiny shells and can happily spend hours on the beach searching for them. The 'Happy Birthday' was a peel off sticker as I thought it could easily be removed if the card was going to stay out longer than usual and I had a feeling it might well do. Sure enough a month later it is still on the windowsill, minus the sticker.
