Happy Birthday Mom!

Hi there!  Today I'm wishing my mom, my friend and my biggest supporter in EVERYTHING that I do, a very Happy Birthday!!

Here's the card I made for her:

Products Used:
Stamps:  Easy Events
Ink:  Bashful Blue, Early Espresso, Soft Suede (for sponging)
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Bashful Blue, Early Espresso, Tea for Two
Other:  Paper Doilies, Stampin' Sponge, Very Vanilla Seam Binding, Crochet Trim
Big Shot:  Labels Collection Framelits, Adorning Accents Edgelits, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder

The inspiration for this card came from a sketch over at the Paper Players Challenge. Here's the sketch:

I just love sketches as a starting point for cards and scrapbook pages!  As you can see, I flipped the direction of my card and used the Labels Framelits in place of the circle.  :)

And here's a recent picture of me and my mom:

I bet she's cringing right now that I put this on here...  hee hee.  But she's such an important part of my life that I just had to share!  She's always been there for me - through boo boo's, heartbreak, cooking tips, parenting mishaps, cheering on my successes and catching me when I fall.  She's my sounding board and my supporter in every endeavor I take.  She encourages me in all that I do and loves my boys and hubby like they're her own.  So thank you mom - I love you!!  And happy birthday!  :)
