Hello and welcome back ! Today I wanted to share with you the special card I created for my mum on her 90 th birthday . Mum 's birthday was yesterday and we had a celebration on Sunday - it had to be a surprise because Mum is not one for ' a lot of fuss ! "
She was so surprised and in awe of the beautiful cake and flowers too !

For this card you need to create a box and hand deliver , perfect for a special occasion such as this !

As you can see it opens up to  look like a standard  card inside !

Note that I have used retired product to create this card and have unashamedly cased  Olga Cavanaugh's stunning card because you cannot improve on perfection ! The only change I made was to add the number 90 in Blushing Bride glimmer , also retired . Thank you so much Olga for so willingly sharing your beautiful card and instructions .
I love this style of card so much that I have created a bunch of Christmas cards and am having classes this coming Saturday and the following Thursday .If you'd like to attend just contact me .
I have a brief description on the " how to " here

Now , just for fun here are a couple of family photos !

That's my mum in the centre front surrounded by her brother and sisters and sisters in law . Mum is the eldest of eight , six of which are still living , four were able to attend on the day .
Here is the mob ! There were a few absent , most of my family were sick on the day which was a shame . Until next time , 'bye for now !
