A card for my Mom's birthday!

Happy Birthday to my Mom!  I love her so very much! 

(Picture from my wedding day....yes, she made my cake!  She is awesome!)

OK, so like I've said before, I'm terrible about posting things that I keep or just gave to a close relative apparently....yep, forgot to post my mom's birthday card from APRIL 30th!!  Geeez!  Anyway, my mom loves hummingbirds so of course I had to make her a hummingbird card!

I used the Pagoda cartridge for the hummingbird (and of course I can't remember what size images I cut back in April!  ha!) as well as the Kanji Word block.  However, I didn't use the back layer with the word "mother" on it like in the book, but instead cut two tags, one a little smaller than the other from my Creative Memories Stork's Delivery cartridge.  Then I just wrote "MOM" on the tags for the front of the card.  I added some rhinestones to the center of some of the flowers, then used my Martha Stewart doily punch for the bottom of the inside of the card.  I trimmed the front of the card a little so this would show on the back.  I also used my Creative Memories butterfly punch to add a small butterfly in the bottom right corner.

On the inside, I added some light green paper, some ribbon, and another hummingbird & a flower (with rhinestone) also cut from the Pagoda cartridge.

My mom of course LOVED her card!

Hope everyone has a great week!  We've got Vacation Bible School this week starting tomorrow night so I'm not sure how much crafting I'll get done at home that is......but lots of crafts each of night at church for sure!  I'll be sure to post what we make!  I used my Cricut for a couple crafts and lots of paint and hot glue too!  :)
