Happy Birthday Mum

Good Morning Blogland, I just got back from my Mum's as it was her 83rd birthday yesterday and I took her out to lunch and the bingo! (Some people really know how to live it up!) That was her choice by the way, not mine!
I managed to get a card made for her at the expense of my DT work, I'm now behind but hopefully I'll get something made when I get home from work tonight!
My Mother is having a knitting phase at the minute and churning out the most funky hats you have ever seen (I'll take some pictures and post them for you, I've got them in my surf shop for sale), so I thought this Teddy Bea knitting was the ideal image!

This was one of the images I won at the Teddy Bo challenge, it was a fabulous prize - 10 images! The paper is Fancy Pants and I'm having a serious Stampin' Up phase too, I love this lush ribbon and matching card. I'm thinking of becoming a Stampin' Up seller soon. (if that's what they are called lol)
The fabulous flowers are from my massive WOC stash (talk about addiction!) and the buttons are from my stash too.

I hope you all have a great weekend, with no rain!

Love 'n' Hugs
Laurie xx

Another fantastic card Laurie. Only just found Teddy Bo myself the other week - aren't their images great! Bet your Mum loves the card & enjoyed her Bingo blast - did you win? Have a great weekend, Jx

PS Well done on the black & green card, saw it again being praised last night - it was a beauty!

Oh how lovely, bless, and there is nothing wrong with Bingo, aged 7, Grandad had a caravan at Skipsea, used to use bottle tops to cover numbers. Loved it, he used to gives us a £1 a week and said "Don't spend it all on bingo.
Fabulous card, and one of the TB images that I like, not a big fan, too fat legs on some images.
Oops just thought 2 little duck 22
Two fat ladies 88
what would too fat legs be?
Loved your comments on my post.
