Happy Birthday MOM!!!!

Happy Monday to everyone...Happy Birthday to my wonderful Mom!!!!!!    Ooh, another weekend over...amazing how fast 2 days off from work go...why can't the work week go fast too?!!  The sun is out this morning, but there is a fall-ish chill in the air, temp is 55 degrees..brrrrrr.   I was thinking this morning, if this weather keeps up I'm going to have to start digging for some warmer clothes & I'm not ready to make that mess-lol.   Mom & I had a fun fun weekend!!  As usual we did lots of eating & lots of shopping -lol.  We went to the Stamp & Scrap Art Tour at our local fair grounds.  There is always sooo much to look at....such inspiration!!  If you follow my blog, you know, I'm not a huge stamp & colorer, but love to admire the works of art that everyone really does make me want to go home & dig out my copics-lol.   I did get a bunch of new patterned paper there, you know me & my paper-yikes!!  After the show we went to Red Lobster for mom's b-day lunch, it was yuuuuummmmmyyyy!!!  After lunch, I guess we figured we hadn't boughten enough scrapping supplies, we went to AC Moore & JoAnns (they are right next to each other).  I did the most damage at JoAnn's...they had some new stuff : )  I can't wait to use some of my new goodies  : )

My mother is a wonderful lady, an awesome mom & my BEST FRIEND!!!  If I can be half the lady my mother is, I would be pretty happy w/life!!   She has taught me so much about life!!!   She's taught me how to be a strong lady, yet to still have grace under pressure (need to work on that one a little -lol).  I could go on & on about my mom....I can't thank God enough for giving me her & the wonderful relationship we have together....I honestly don't know what I would do w/out my mom in my life!!!!  Isn't she beautiful!!!   For those on, you might have seen this cute picture before....this is mom & her little man, Oscar : )

My mom's b-day is today, but we celebrated it yesterday & she got her presents last night, so I can show you her new card : ) 
This one is a bit different then the cards I usually make for her, most of them are bright bright colored, which is why I went w/a card w/black in...wanted to change it up ; )

I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday...especially my mom!!   TFL  Lynn

  1. Yay! Happy birthday, Lynn's mom! =D That card is GORGEOUS, I'm sure she just LOVED it! All of the papers work so well together, and I love those colors. (Really, I love black with any other color. LOL) I love the butterfly, and I love the little flag/tag/thing that says Happy Birthday! Adorable. Sounds like you guys had an awesome weekend, yay! So nice to see how close you and your mom are, and how much love there is. Family is so's great you appreciate what you have. =D I hope it warms up for you! Definitely do not want any cold-weather clothes anytime soon. (Then IS almost September...sigh.) Have a great day!
