A Milestone + Give away

Today my mum is celebrating her 65th birthday. It's nice that she's here with us to celebrate it, as I've only actually seen her on her birthday once in the past 10 years. This afternoon when the children come home from school we'll do a cake for her with of course 65 candles. I made this card for her:

Supplies: Bazzill Basics Cardstock Lily White | SEI Patterned Paper + ribbon + chipboard shapes + die-cut Mimosa | Basic Grey chipboard numbers Porcelain | Martha Stewart border punch | Ali Edwards for Technique Tuesday clear stamp | Sharpie pen brown. 

The children each also made a card for her yesterday:

This is Rebecca's card:


and Renee's:

I'll also show you the inside of Renee's card, as she did some stamping and wrote her birthday wishes to oma in Dutch:

On another note: Remember when I posted the 6th picture in the 6th folder in my library? Those tiles that were cracked in the kitchen, for which we put in a claim. Last week we had to floor taken up and new tiles put in. This morning the tiler finished grouting. This is what it looks like now:

We haven't been granted our claim yet, as they needed to know whether the foundation was cracked as well. As it turns out it was, so we've taken photographic evidence in the hope that they will agree. Fingers crossed.

I'll be back a little later with my last Spring Clean Monday blog post. Enjoy your day!

Your card is beautiful of course, but your children must have gotten your talent because their cards are wonderful as well!
