Happy Birthday, Mom!

Next week is my mother's
birthday, and not wanting to wait until the last minute (my usual), I made her a card using Graphic 45's Secret Garden and Place in Time.

It's done rather simply,
with just the papers and I Am Roses flowers.

I made one of the mats
into a pocket and tucked in a couple small tags. I added a wide eyelet and green seam binding to one.

Made some foliage to
go with the flowers using Sizzix Branch w/leaves Sizzlet die and Martha Stewart's Branch punch.

Remember I told you we
were going to Ikea? Well when we met our daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter there, Katie presented me with a card she had created for me.

She's ten now and doing
amazing with her crafting. I'm always thrilled to see what she makes... so proud of her!

Thanks for stopping by!
