Happy Birthday Mum!

Hello!  I'm popping in today to wish my mum a very happy 72nd birthday.  I'm sure she'll be thrilled that I posted her age, but look at her.  I say she is 72nd and fabulous!  I am so very blessed to have my mum close by.  We all love her so very much. I enjoy my time with her doing day to day things (running around with the boys, watching baseball), but I really cherish those special times when we have mum and daughter time together.  We love to chat about everything and the conversation often changes mid stream, but we never lose a beat.   Happy birthday Mum.  I love you!


My card today is actually not her birthday card...I can't share that until tomorrow when she's already received her card.  I'll see her a bit later this afternoon to wish her happy birthday in person!  The card today is for the Just Us Girls Sketch Challenge.  I had fun using a few different distress inks on the Verve flowers.

  8. There is no way your mum is 72!! I've seen several photos of her and I would have never guessed! (Does she have a smashing British accent?).
    Lovely card that you created for a lovely lady. You seem like you have a wonderful relationship and that is awesome!

    Meanwhile, back at my drooly keyboard: HELLO, GORGEOUS! I'm quite a mess, gawkin' at your lovely piece of stampalicious fabulousness - your interpretation of Kathryn's fine sketch makes me HAPPY! {You already know that I'm a big fan, but I can still swoon!} I'm SO glad you've shared your lovely work, once again - with JUST us... the GIRLS, that is!
