Happy Easter Birthday Mother’s Day Mom!

Today is my Mom’s birthday.  Since I’m the absolute worst at putting things in the mailbox – she may get lucky to get her card and gift by Mother’s day, heck maybe she will be lucky enough to get both at the same time so her Mother’s day card and gift will show up on time!  Because it doesn’t have a sentiment on the front of the card, it could even double as her Easter card!  haha  LOL  At least I talked to her and sang her happy birthday today…she knows her cards are on their way…someday!

I created this card using an image from Create With TLC called Smell The Beauty Vintage Collage.  I colored her with a combination of pencils and chalk.  I added a butterfly charm, some lace, roses, gems, and a couple pins I made.  I used my Sizzix dies to cut the leaves, flourish, and butterflies.  I tore the edges of the Create With TLC digi paper and rubbed it with a CMTH Bamboo ink pad.

Thanks for looking!

  8. this is such a lovely Birthday card/ easter card or mothers day card :). I love the main image and all the embellishments as usual look lovely and I am sure your mum will love it when she eventually gets it. In the meantime you should get her to look at your blog :), I am really bad at posting things as well, I’m trying to get better.
