Mom's Birthday Blessings

Good Morning! Looks like Winter is coming back through, and it's going to be very cold for us in Northern Maine this week...I know we ALWAYS HAVE 6 extra weeks of Winter on Groundhog's Day, but come on, does it seriously have to be below zero for soooo long? I'll take 10ft of Snow before below zero temps! So I guess it'll be a good time to catch up on all the cards I've been neglecting to make.....so with my cup of coffee and all my paper, glitter, glue, rhinestones, scissors and Cricut machine, it's time to CREATE! 

Here's one to start the inspirations flowing...this is a Birthday Card I made recently for my Mom who was rehabbing from a Heart Attack; I figured the colors would cheer her up and I was right! AC Moore Cardstock, DCWV Birthday Cardstock, K&Co Stickers, American Crafts Glitter, Ribbon and Rhinestones were all used to create this 3d Birthday Cake! The Candles fit in the cake as well and ther are mini beads in the sticker cake and star balloon to add some dimensions as well! My Cricut also came in handy for the cake topper and the background/mat for the stickers as well. The strip was created with Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page and a few hints of glitter add just the pinache I was looking for! Enjoy!


  1. What a fabulous birthday card! The colors are awesome and love the fun details! I am sure your Mom loved it:)

  2. You may want to enlarge the center of your posts....when we leave a comment and have to do word verification at the end your space does not allow all the numbers. You have to do it like 3 x's until you get one to verify that is in the space allowed in order for it to publish my message. Hope you can understand what I am trying to say :)
