Happy Birthday, Mom!

Yesterday was my Mom's 81st birthday (and I forgot to take a picture of her....ugghh!). But here is a picture of her in December with her new great-granddaughter, Ava.I had her over for her favorite dinner that I make...Wingless Buffalo Chicken Pizza. I got this recipe from Rachael Ray and we all love it! Being from Buffalo, we all love our chicken wings! I also had her sister, my favorite aunt, Joannie over for cake and coffee. Anyway, I made this card for her. My mom loves yellow and so I thought this floral image I just got from Gina K designs called Spring Florals, was perfect.I used a dp from Basic Grey's Origins and the yellow piece (PTI's Lemon Tart) was run through an SU folder. I used some Certainly Celery twill ribbon to tie it all together and some PTI buttons as an accent. The sentiment is from the same Spring Florals set. I added some yellow and star dust stickles to the image and swirled some Certainly Celery ink around the image and sentiment. The card is a 4 3/4" square to fit my 5" envelope. My mom really loved the card and what was in it...a gift card to her favorite grocery store (it's what she always asks for!).

It was a really nice first day of spring yesterday, and I'm hoping today will be just as nice (although I think it's going to rain...better than snow)! Enjoy your Sunday, and thanks for stopping in today!

Stamps: Spring Florals (Gina K designs)
Paper: PTI white and lemon tart, Origins dp (Basic Grey)
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, certainly celery, copic markers
Accessories: Nesties, twill ribbon, yellow and star dust stickles, buttons, floss, embossing folder

Happy Birthday to your Mom, Lisa. You can see the family resemblance between you and her. I think you posted once on the WNY link that you were making that Rachel Ray Pizza because I instantly remembered it and I think I made it once, too, after seeing your post. Your delicate floral and soft colors as well as your wonderful eye for layout, has all combined for a beautiful work of art here.
