Happy Birthday Mom!

I thought that I'd give you all a little peek at the card that I made Mom for her birthday today. I had to make it of course with her in the same room, but she did not see it. We always craft together and we really never pay attention to each other until one of us says "oops".

Mom is kinda a "flowery" type person so I pulled out the SU! set Time Well Spent. I love that set!!! The base card is Chocolate Chip that I layered with a piece of Heidi Grace DP. I added some of the Top Note die cuts that my dear friend Mary Beth over at Stampin Space sent me. Actually she sent me the buttons, striped grosgrain ribbon and designer brad. I did not want to "waste" them so I've been saving them and I'm glad that I did!!

I colored the flowers with my watercolors and added some stickles to give them a little pop. I punched a piece of the DP scrap with my scallop circle punch and the circle with my 1 3/8" circle punch. I stamped one of the flowers from the set and colored it in with watercolors and my SU! markers, sponged some Old Olive ink around it and added stickles to it. I used pop dots to adhere it to the card. I glued down the buttons and brad and stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts in Old Olive ink and I was complete. I think that she will like it, don't you?

Well enough for today. When someone in our house has a birthday that person gets to pick out what they want for dinner ~ if they want to go out or stay in ~ and what type of cake they want. Well Mom wants meatloaf (I make a pretty good meatloaf) and chocolate cake. So, I've got to get busy.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!
