Happy Birthday Mom!

I have not posted anything recently because of course ..Christmas happened...but more importantly..I vowed to never make another card until I completely reorganized my craft room & purged a lot of product at the same time!  Although I probably vowed to do the same thing the last 2 years, I really meant it this time and did not make or send out any cards since that last post.  I am happy to say I made a lot of progress, but still have a lot of work to do.  However I could not disregard my mother's 86th birthday.  She will turn 86 on this Monday January 16th, and I have made her birthday cards for about the last seven years at least, so I couldn't disappoint her!!  Purple/Lavender is her most favorite color of all times....it has not changed over many, many years!  I know first hand & have a constant reminder.  My husband & I bought her & my dad's house about 16 years ago.  Our master bath tub is lavender as well as the sinks, and there are strategic bath tiles of lavender in both the shower & on the tile floor.  Her next favorite color is rose, and that is the color of tile & fixtures in our second bathroom!!  When they sold us their house, they moved into a condo and my Mom proceeded to paint the bathrooms & walls there in lavender & rose...who'd of thunk!!  We have not been able to remodel the house since we bought it due to economic woes & I think when my mom visits from time to time...that's just fine with her!!  Anyway...enough storytelling..here is the card I created for her....oh...I forgot to say...butterflies are another one of her passions!!  I have never used these  butterfly stamp & die cuts before, and sadly, I cannot even tell you where I got them from.  I'm sure I probably purchased them with my Mom in mind!!  I colored them with my Promarkers & then added some shimmer with a Wink of Stella  marker, and added a few Pretty Pink Posh clear droplets! Well...sorry I ranted on too much, but thanks for listening & I hope you like my card & I thank you for stopping by!!
