Mom's Birthday Card

   Hello and welcome to my blog. Glad you could stop by. My Mom's birthday will be in a few days. She's all exciting, counting down the days. So for today I am sharing the card I made for her.

I decided to make her an easel card. Hadn't made her one in awhile. If you have never made an easel card, they are super simple to make. There is several video's on youtube.

The pretty image on the card is a napkin. I think it's so pretty and I thought the colors looked like fall. I decided to add a frame so that the focus is on the bird. 

The cardstock used is Groovy Guava from Stampin Up. Not sure where I got the shiny cardstock that I used for the frame and behind the sentiment. There was just a little left in my scraps. I think it's from Stampin Up.

The sentiment is from S.U. The set is called Well Scripted. The satin ribbon was white but I colored it with a alcohol marker so that it would match the creamy cardstock. I also colored the gem with another alcohol marker to match. Love being able to change the colors to what I need.

I also had a little piece of the napkin left with this sweet little bird on it. There was no way that I was going to throw it away. So I made a little tag. I will be saving this to add to a card later on. 


I will be spending a few days with my Mom for her birthday. I'm sure she will like her card. I think she enjoys my cards more than anyone. I feel very blessed to still have her. 

I'm also going to be making some Spinach Tortellini in the crock pot to take some to her. She loves it and hasn't had any for probably a year. My grandson has been asking for me to make it again. It is really good and I love it when the weather gets cold. If you would like to try it, It's on my side bar to the right. Just scroll down and you will see it. 

Well I guess that's going to be it for now. I will be having several post coming up. I think my next one will be on the 12th after I get back from my Mom's. Hope you can make it back.
