A birthday gift

Today we celebrate Mum's birthday here at our home. In an effort to keep things simple (huh!) we are having baked spuds with a buffet of toppings, followed by apple crumble and cherry crumble. Since it all sounds pretty country fair-apple pie-down on the farmish I decided to go with that theme.

Hopefully I might have some photos later, if I get to take any in the rush!

Anyway, this is one of my gifts for Mum:

... which was completely inspired by Marelle using one of her gift wallet patterns and then the cards themselves based on the cards she made at my Stampin' Up party. To go with them I stayed blue and bought some lavendar body cream, some blueberry preserves and some Lindt chocolate wrapped in blue. I know she loves blue so hopefully she'll like all these.

This is the card I made for her, actually using some of the scraps from the set above. Lots of fun!

Well I have a stack of shopping, cleaning and cooking to do, so better go now!
