Thank You for Being My Friend

Good Wednesday to you! Hope your day is going well.
Today I'm sharing a card I made for a special friend in my life. One that I can share my inner most thoughts with and not be afraid to be judged or lectured. Those kind of friends are rare and few, so glad I have one!
I have been using digi stamps for so long that I have neglected my rubber stamps. This one is by Stampavie, I instantly fell in love with it.

Happy Birthday Mom!

Well, the day is almost over and I think it was a pretty swell one! I hope my Mom enjoyed her day!
I also hope she enjoyed her cake and handmade card. She loves the vintage look, so I made a card especially for her!

This was her "vintage" mini cake. The frosting was cream cheese, so divine!

She was also "showered with cards" by many of my "pea-friends". Thank you ladies for making my Mom's bday a special one! 

I think it was a very blessed day. And I know she deserves SO much more! But I do know
she enjoyed her day!

Love you Mom!!!

A Little Love Note

Good day to all my online friends. I'm finishing up some Valentine cards this week and thought I'd pop in and share this one with you. I don't have alot of Valentine papers and live about an hour from Hobby Lobby. So, I'm really trying to use what I have on hand. All you see here are scraps, from cardstock to dp!

I used some "non traditional" colors for this one. I have also been trying to use my scraps and little embellies that I've been 'hoarding' instead of using! he,he!!! I also did not have a Sassy Cheryl's Valentine image..SOOO, I put a Valentine in her hand!!!


Card Details: Digi Image-Sassy Cheryl, Patterned Paper (scraps), My Mind's Eye, Patterned Paper w/ Journaling Heart-12x12 sheet by Fancy Pants, Border Punch-Martha Stewart, Felt Flowers-Target Dollar Spot, Heart Punch-EK Success
