Happy Birthday Mom

Yes she's the grand old age of 62 today and she doesn't look a day over lol, have a lovely day and heres the card I made. I used Stampin' Up cardstock, AL single flower stamp, butterfly and bee stamp that I have no idea who they are by and a Hero Arts 'Happy Birthday' stamp and coloured them with Sakura glitter gel pens.

Next is a CJ entry that had me stumped since I found out the theme...The Most Memorable Place in the World for Me. I thought I would my honeymoon to Tunisia but then when the CJ arrived it couldn't be a Country it had to be a place in a Country that was memorable, with that in mind I did the Medina in Hammamet. Now if you've ever been there you will know how terrifying and intimidating the place can be, beautiful and very intriguing but definitely not for the faint hearted. I was 21 when I decided it would be a good idea to explore what was behind the enormous walls and something I'm really proud I did despite being scared. However, I was pressurised into buying a Chinese rug that I probably could have done without but I still have it today as a constant reminder of my mini adventure.

Until next time xxx

Love the card Claire. I bet your mum was really pleased to receive it.
Can also relate to your experience in Tunsia. Myself DD1 and DD2 took ourselves off to Tunsia for a week together. They were 20 and 18 years old at the time OMG I have never felt so protective of them when we went into the Souk. We could not get out from behind those walls quick enough!!!! lol
