Happy Birthday Mom

Wherever you are, whoever you're with, whatever you're doing, I still love you and wish you all the happiness in the world.  

It's my mom's birthday this week and I'm sure that she thinks I don't remember or don't care as I'm so busy with my own life.  But I don't.  As you may be able to tell my mother and I aren't very close.  We use to be, but life happens and we started to need each other less and less.  But whatever life brings between us it doesn't stop the fact that I love her and I am thankful for her efforts in raising me.  Being a mother now I can appreciate the sacrifices that were made and the emotional roller coaster that comes from having a daughter of my own.

Anyhow, this card was inspired by another October Viva la Verve sketch.  It's not one of my best accomplishments but I do like the cupcake.  I layered it and frosted it with glitter.  I wanted to use a darker pink background with lighter ribbon but I also wanted to be able to stamp a sentiment.  Thinking back now I could have done that a white embossed the sentiment.  I'm starting to get back into my grove and I'm liking it.  It really is nice to find the time for this.  I'll try to find more time to surf the blogs and see what else I've missed while I've been gone.  I've noticed a couple of my other blog friends are currently on hiatus as well and it kind of makes me sad :(

Have a fantabulous day!!!
