Happy Birthday Mum

Morning,  Absolutely pouring down here today so have decided it's a crafting day, no housework, have a few new stamps I want to play with. I will have to tidy my desk before or I will be working on the size of a postage stamp. Such a messy worker.  But first my post and catch up with you all..
 Grrrrrrrr, not going to plan! Broadband playing up once again. Has shut down on me twice, keeps freezing  so inconsiderably in the middle of leaving comments or won't let me in, in the first place and to top it all computer takes the huff and crashes on me, mnnnn, not a good start to my chill out day! Better get on with showing you my card and hope the rest of the day doesn't continue in the same fashion.
I was asked to make a special Mum card, had a rough idea what she wanted . Came across the Hero Arts Roses cling stamp in my box, oh dear, never been used, why I do not know cause I love how pretty it looks now it's on stamped and embossed. Embossed with cream and inked with Cinnamon Versa mark, gave it a lovely soft sheen.

That background is beautiful Carol, love it. The whole card is really gorgeous. Love the colours.

My broadband connection is usually rubbish. Useable but slow but sometimes not even as fast as slow! Worse this last week while my laptop was being repaired. I mostly tried to use my iPad, sometimes with more success than others.
