Good morning everyone and happy Friday!!! We are heading to see my mother in law today to celebrate her 90th birthday! A special birthday deserves a special card, and I had a game plan in my head before going to bed of getting up early to make it, but after dreaming about making a card for her I just got up at 2am and did it! Yep, cutting paper, running dies, and coloring stamped images and I didn’t even have my glasses on! But I was back in bed by 3am AND I was able to sleep without dreaming about that card again!
I wanted to use the Fond Of Autumn bundle, but wanted a non-traditional color combo for fall. I love how well the colors of Crumb Cake, Soft Succulent, and Petal Pink turned out – soft and muted! It’s not noticeable in the photo, but I covered all of the blend colored areas with Wink Of Stella which is always the perfect touch to a card!
This is a short and sweet post since I now have 25 minutes left before leaving, but just a couple of things about Jim’s mom. I truly lucked out in the in-law dept. when we got married. We have had our moments like all in-laws do but I am so very blessed to have Elda as my mom by marriage. She’s a gutsy lady who no one would think was 90. She’s strong minded, independent, loves her children and grandchildren dearly, and I can not thank her enough for the wonderful job she did raising Jim to be the kind of man he is. Happiest of Birthday’s Elda and I love you! Bet you didn’t expect to be the momma of a Pool Boy!
