Thanks, Mom!!!!

Well, today is my birthday. ;) And being a mom, I know how special this day is to mothers who relive every second of the day they gave birth to their child. (well, at least I do!) So, in honor of my birthday, I dedicate this post to the most wonderful mother in the world, Blanca Gervais. I am so blessed to have been born on this day, 29+ years ago to the most caring, generous, smart and loving mom ever. Thank you, mom, for the gift of life and for all you've done over the years to make every day of it so wonderful. Love you!!!

This card is for you. It's a new Pink Paislee card that I made. Love the Office Lingo line. I also added some Collage Press paper, pom poms, glitter and stitching.




I woke up to two beautiful cards today. One from Fran and one from Ryan. Ryan also gave me a wonderful 'mom' frame. We'll have to take a cute picture to put in it. We're going to be heading up to Philly soon, so I can hit Utrecht Art Supply and get some Copic markers - my birthday gift. Fran thinks I'm crazy. Who gets markers for their birthday? ;)

So, thanks for stopping by! Have a great day! (I know I will.)
