Happy Birthday Mum - A Word Book

Morning everyone,
Hello to all my followers new and old, I am so chuffed at Christmas I only had 12 followers and now I have nearly 50, I know it is probably not a lot to some of you but to me it is wonderful, I get so excited when I see comments or a new follower.  This post is picture heavy sorry if it takes time to load.

Anyway on to my new card, this one has no images and is a word book for my mother-in-law's birthday which is in a couple of weeks. 

I had seen this done before and thought it was a brilliant idea, I spent some time working out how to cut it on the CraftRobo, I am only just getting my head around the software but all more or less fallen into the place now so watch out for more shaped cards.

Now I know how to make name cards I might do another one sometime, but only if the name is under 4 letters... LOL.

 This just had to be the hardest card to photograph, I just hope you can see it ok.

This is the second page - back of the first M and the U. 

Close up of the second page, I forgot to undo the ribbon and take a picture of the sentiment... doh... and it is too dark to take now.  I cut the circle heart nestie die in half and glued it to a scalloped square.

This is the last page, by now I was pretty fed of trying to photograph it and called my son in, you can just see his fingers. 

Hope you like this card.
