Card for Mom

Last night we celebrated my Mom's birthday (and my son's since my folks were on the mainland on his bday). Sorry, foodies, no food to show. We ordered chinese food and had a homemade birthday cake. Everything was so delicious!

Remember my attempts at coloring black hair? Well I decided to use this image on my Mom's birthday card. I didn't realize how handy it was to have an image ready and waiting to be used!!! I may have to do more coloring of various images just to have them on hand. The card base is a printed card from a DCWV box card set, used my Nesties scallop to frame the image, and added All Natural Accents flowers. Simple card, but I think it turned out pretty nice.

Here's the inside:

My family is always joking around about stuff so I thought for the inside of the card I'd write something funny instead of mushy. Everyone laughed when they saw what I wrote. Especially my Sister!
Ok, friends - hope everyone is having a nice weekend and let's not forget all our military men and women of the past, present and future. Let's pray for all of them and their families and thank them for giving their lives for our freedom.
