I finally made it!!

No...not a card LOL!
I can now officially apply for my Senior Citizen rail card and my bus pass!!!!
I've not been able to make any cards all week, as I've had to be at Mum's every day.
I'm off to bed now as a 60 year old!!!!! OMG!!!!
I don't feel any older than 20 something!!!

Mum is 90 tomorrow (12th). She's having a 'bit of a do' at the Church Hall and little does she know, I've had the most exquisite cake made for her by my lovely friend, Sandra, (Icelady).
It's going to be a challenge getting it to her, but get it to her , I will!
Here's the cake Sandra made for Mum.....

Isn't it fabulous!!! Sandra also made a beautiful cake for me on Sunday. It was Jackie's Stampin' Up party and there was 13 of us. What I didn't know was, that it was to be a joint birthday party. I got an even bigger surprise when I opened the door at Jackie's, to find another friend from London (Val) on the doorstep!!! What a wonderful surprise!

Issy, (my mentor when it comes to punched flower cards), was staying with me for the weekend and Pam and I took her to Derby for the SU party.
The day was huge success all round and I can't remember when I've spent a happier day. Here's the birthday cake Sandra made for me.......

All the flowers on both cakes are handmade from sugar paste by Sandra. Isn't she CLEVER!!! :0) I've got loads of cards and pressies to open in the morning, so I'd better get to bed hadn't I?

(I'll hopefully be able to come on later at some point). :0) Viv xx
