HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM - I LOVE YOU!!!!!Today is my mom's birthday - she is 29, LOL! That is what she always tells me anyway! My mom is a faithful reader of my blog although she never does comment - she just tells me on the phone what she thinks! I am so very glad I get to spend today with her because now I can spoil her rotten! I am very lucky - my mom is truly my best friend, and I love her with all my heart! She has always been there for me, been my biggest cheerleader, loves my kids, adores my husband, and is an absolutely wonderful woman. So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!! I love ya!
Here are some of the goodies my mom is receiving from me! So, to give you a little background so you understand my gift, my mother LOVES to play the slots and although she does not get to go often, when she does, she has a great time pulling that handle! With that in mind, here is what I made her. I altered a Starbucks Frappuchino bottle and filled it with quarters - it holds a LOT, let me tell you!! I made the bottle to match the card that I made her. I used my A Little Birdie
Stamp set because I love it and I decided that Jen's Saturday sketch was perfect for what I wanted to do! I just flipped it from one side to the other so the birds could be facing each other. Don't those birds look like they are talking - LOL! Here is a closeup of the card. I really had fun
with this one, and love the way it turned out. I hope she likes it too! And, I also decided that I would do the inside of this card because, hey, she IS my mom and it IS her birthday - LOL! So, here it is! I used the little bird from my Pun Fun set because he fit so well with this theme! And,
he is stinkin' cute!! So, there you have it - hopefully she will enjoy the slots and think of me when she wins the jackpot!!!! I will leave you with the recipe! Have a great day!
