Sweet Stampin' Challenge~My Mum.

Hello Ladies~

Saturday means another Challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and this week our Theme is "Milestone Birthdays".
As My Lovely Mum "Beryl" is 75 this month, (mind you she doesn't look it as you can see by the photo of her I have added to this post), I decided to use her Birthday as my inspiration for the Milestone Birthday for this theme.
Our Sponsors this week are "Crafts U Love".

My Mum does not look 75 does she, hope I look and act like her when I am her age, she is amazing.
Her dress sense is so lovely, she has beautiful silver grey bobbed hair and lovely skin, she is always so positive and happy and I love her so much. This is a recent photo, taken when Mum, my Sister, my Friend and I went to Spain on holiday.
In this photo (if you look in the background you will see a load of blokes on a Stag night all wearing the Cowboy hats,) one of them gave Mum his hat for the photo, she was just minding her own business sat at the bar in Benidorm's "Western Pub", when one of them just popped his hat on her head!!

This is another photo of Me, Mum and My Sister Mandy, backs to the Mediterranean! 

I started my card with a 7x7 Samuel Taylor blank, I used all LOTV papers + Image from one of the Art Pads. I used a Darkroom Door Sentiment Stamp called "String Sentiments". I just love this set, it has Birthday, sympathy, get well, hello, thinking of you, hugs and congratulations in the set and all have this string effect through the words. The card is finished with a few different pearl embellishments.
