Happy Birthday

Sunday, 17 February 2008
It's my young cousin, Abbie's, 9th birthday on Tuesday so I decided it was about time that I made her card.

I have to say that I wasn't feeling very inspired when I was making the card just now. It's been a bit of a tough few days. My mum has depression and we're going through a bit of a rough few days. I've been seeing her most days to try and keep her spirits up and yesterday it seemed to be working, but I got a call from my dad this morning to say that she'd had a really bad night and could I possibly come and see her. It's strange because it seems to have been triggered by a bout of labrynthitis. I myself have had this and it can be very distressing, but for it to have set the depression off is very strange. We're really hoping that she will pick up in the next few days.

That's enough of the waffling, back to the card. As I said, I wasn't feeling very inspired and I always find children's cards difficult to make. I embossed some pearlescent paper with the Happy Birthday embossing folder by Cuttlebug and attached this to some bazzill card before attaching some organza ribbon. The image is courtesy of Charlie Bear and Friends decoupage. Very simple really, not overly happy with it.

I'd better go as it's my sisters birthday on Wednesday and, yes, you've guessed it, I've not made her card either.

Thanks for listening to all my ramblings.
