Happy Birthday Mom!

So this past week my mom had a birthday. I will not say which number ... but is somewhere near a highway speed limit! LOL

Anywho ... I made her this pretty card with bird paper because (1) my dad has been calling her the "Birdwoman" for many years (apparently she used to have quite a nose) and (2) she loves her some birds. She has a ton of birdhouses and feeders in her backyard and she even feeds her bluebirds worms every evening. We can sit about 5 feet from the feeder and all the birds - bluebirds, cardinals, chicadees, titmice, goldfinches and hummingbirds - swarm around and visit the various feeders. She loves it. And I love her. :-)
Off today to enjoy some birdwatching and maybe a game of Scrabble on the deck. Later!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: PTI Enjoy the Ride
Ink: SU! Chocolate Chip; PTI Chai, Chamomile
Paper: PTI Kraft; American Crafts Botanique "Wanda" (birds); October Afternoon Thrift Shop (dots)
Accessories: wrinkled ribbon from Memarie; gold pearls from e. by Prima; hydrangea blooms from craft supply
