Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my mom’s birthday, and unfortunately for her, she didn’t get a grandchild today to share her birthday with her.  That did however mean that my family was able to come over for a BBQ.  We celebrated both my mom’s birthday and my brother’s birthday (his is tomorrow).  Maybe he will get a niece or nephew to share his birthday with him!  It was  a great evening with beautiful weather so we sat outside while Dexter chased after the ball all night – which would explain why he came in and immediately went to bed!  It was a great night, that’s for sure.

For her special day, I made this card:

 Happy Birthday Mom 2011 2

The paper is Elegant Eggplant and Certainly Celery by Stampin’ Up.  I stamped the Celery with the swirls from the Baroque Motifs Stampin’ Up set, and embossed it with Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel.  The butterflies are all from a clear stamp set from Hero Arts.  I took a Copic colouring course at my local scrapbook store a few weeks ago with Sherrie Siemens and we coloured one butterfly in these colours.  I bought the stamp set, and decided to colour more of them the same, and use them on a card for my mom.  I just love them and they take no time at all to whip up.  The colours used are B21, 24, 29, V12, 15, 17, BV0000, and G24.  I cut them out and also used the Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel on them to give them that super shine.  They are attached with glue dots.  The sentiment is from a SU set, and it’s stamped on a piece that was cut from a Nestabilities tag set. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day.
