This is the Day!

My mom turned 80 yesterday and this is the card I made for her.  We purchased the "Swivel Store" as her gift which I just really like!  Anyway, I'll show you the card.

I set it outside on a log so that's why it's leaning a bit.  I used a stamp from a Nina B. set called Wonderful Words. The paper I picked up at Joann's on sale.  It's from a 12 x 12 pad by K & Company called TC Cottage Garden.  I bought the matching Layered Accents too, but none of them matched this particular sheet. Oh well.

I made my own flower embellishment from assorted punched then added a rhinestone to finish it off.  A pop dot gave it the height I need to roll the petals down for dimension.

We all celebrated mom's birthday at Red Lobster.  She loves to go there for her birthday.  It was a great time!

I did get my pics downloaded from our Sedona, AZ trip but need to crop, resize, etc. Am ordering some paper from Memory Works to use for scrapping them.   I also got a cool globe frame from our LSS here in Green Valley, AZ to decorate and insert a picture of me and hubby.  But, gotta wait until my order comes in!
