Happy Birthday, Mama!

Hi everyone! I apologize that I've been neglecting my blog lately, but that's because I haven't had much creative time lately. However, I did make some time to create my Mama a birthday card! Today is her birthday...Happy Birthday, Mama! I love you!

I used a previous Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients for this card. The cute cupcake gal is also from a TE stamp set - Bakery Business. I colored her in with Copic markers. I decided to "dress" her in a bright outfit to match the papers in the KI Memories Paisley Parade Papers. I stamped the sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages by Papertrey Ink and cut it out with Classic Oval Nestabilities. I stitched around all of the edges, added a green twill ribbon, and three chocolate brads. I also added a little Espresso Adirondack Dimensional Pearls to the left cupcake and Christmas Red Stickles to each of the cherries.

I followed this week's SFYTT and flipped it on its' side for my card. However, I left out the right circle element.

As for school, that is going good...just very busy! I also start two graduate classes this week, so I'll be going to school when I get finished teaching school! I just can't get enough of it, can I? :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!
