January is a month FULL of birthdays in our house so when I saw this week’s challenge over at the Global Design Project, I had not only the project but the recipient in mind. It’s my mother’s birthday on the 14th of January and I don’t think she would forgive me if I let slip her age, so Mum’s the word on that one!  However, this will be her card…… Read More »
