Mom's Day

   It's my mother's birthday coming up this Sunday.  The family is planning on getting together for a birthday luncheon at Bugaboo Creek. There will be eleven of us to wish Mom another "Happy Birthday". I made this card from a card I had pinned on Pinterest. Nendy did a great job with the directions. They  are clear and easy to follow. Check out her card here.     Nandy's Creative Corner
Mom's Birthday Card
   I used different colored paper, but essentially I cased her card. I wanted to put "Happy Birthday" on the front of the card, so I used a Spellbinder's banner die cut.
   I added bling to the corner for a little pizzaz. I used the same Cuttlebug embossing folders that Nandy used.
  I think Mom is going to love this card . She has been living with us a year come the end of July and it's been great.  It's nice to have her near to talk to and ask questions about family history. I am so thankful and blessed by her.
Mom loves to read.....

  So Happy Birthday, Mom!!  May you have many, many, many more.
