My Mum's special birthday!

We spent a lovely day with
my Mum and Dad Yesterday.
They share a birthday but  2 years apart.
So Mum was 70 this year(Dad's 72)!

We went out for a lovely lunch at
Scotts at Largs Yacht haven,
then they came back to ours and we spent
a lovely afternoon catching up.

My Mum loves Ducks
so I went for this fun image
and had him hiding in a box.

I'm pretty sure the duck is Robyn's fetish design.

I'd like to share this with

Marianne's Designs Divas - Bloom and grow
(I have used several Marianne design dies)
2 Sisters challenge - fancy folds
(and also the card below)

My Dad also asked me to make her
 a card from him.
I used my Lovely flowers bird image.

Coloured with promarkers,
handmade flowers
and foliage sprayed with cosmic shimmer.

I'd like to share this with

Aud's sentiment challenge - Happy Birthday
Crafts and me - flowers
