Some More Cards

My mum had a special birthday on Sunday, she was 80. We weren't able to visit her, but we made her day special with a family zoom chat. My daughter also wrote a special song, had us all record ourselves singing it, adding special messages, then put it all together in a lovely video. Mum was very moved by it.

Here's the card I made for my mum.

My mother-in-law shares the same birthday, and I made a similar card for her, with her favourite colours.

My little cottage industry continues with some more card orders from my neighbours.

A 40th birthday card.

And two more sympathy cards.

Thanks for visiting,

  2. I love seeing your cards. I've thought about getting back into card making more. Right now my time is limited (can't wait for remote teaching to be done), but you are inspiring me a lot Alison. Gorgeous cards today. and hope your Mom had a great 80th. Hugs-Erika

  3. What a gorgeous selection of cards, Alison!!!!!

  4. Sorry I was so late visiting. A horrible storm, high winds, hail, and terrible downpour put water in my basement and a mess in my yard and garden Friday morning. I had to clean it up because we have more rain and high winds on the way on Saturday.

    All of your cards are gorgeous, Alison. I especially like the sympathy cards, which are beautiful and so well done.

  5. Oh, how lovely to celebrate your mum's birthday we the song and video messages - now wonder she loved it! The cards are beautiful and I love the button centres for the flowers - gorgeous 😁. Wishing you a happy weekend! Take care! Hugs, Jo x

I love how you replicated the card for your MIL happy belated to her too. All cards are fabulous, your doing a great service to neighbours and bringing smiles to many.
    I hope you are doing well? It's a difficult time isn't it? I'm struggling a little now to be honest but just got to keep going for those special around me. Take care of yourself Alison & hope the suns shining for you this Sunday. Hugs Tracey xx
