Birthday Card for Mom

OMgosh it's I can hardly believe that my mother will be celebrating her 95th Birthday in a few weeks!!! To me she's like in her early 70's.  Could be because she had me pretty late in life.   She's still young at heart and pretty darn active!!!  She just mentioned the other day that she wants to travel to Holland for my Aunt's 100th Birthday in 2012. 

 
This is one of the Birthday cards that I am making for her.  I know that I will make several more goodies for her and maybe a few more cards for the greatgrandkids to give her.  I used the Bee Keeper by Victoria Case for my card.  I think my mom will get a real kick out of him.  She love's her flower's and garden.  I entered this little cutie into the following challenges:



Here's what I used to create my easel card:
  • Bee Keeper Victoria Case Digi
  • Stampendous Sentiment Stamp
  • Copic Markers
  • Sakura Gel Pens
  • Cuttlebug & Embossing Folders
  • Funky Scissors
  • Giant Flower
  • Green Buttons & Cord
  • Yellow & Green Stickles
  • Martha Stewart Punch around the Page, Butterfly Punches & Flower Edger
  • DP & Cardstock from my stash
Thanks for looking, comments very much appreciated.
