Sweet Sarah--Mom's 82nd Birthday Card

Just a quick post to show you the card I made for my mom's birthday!! She celebrated #82 yesterday!! So a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you Mom!! Thanks for always being there for me, for your wisdom and wit over the years and for being an awesome mother!!

I wanted to make a card that had a bit of vintage look to it. I used Sweet Sarah from Whimsy Stamps. I love this new image Crissy has drawn--partly because it's just so adorable and partly because she named it in honour of me!! It actually looks a little like me when I was a wee one!! I joked with Crissy that I would have looked this neat and tidy for all of about 10 minutes after my mom dressed me. Then the hair bow would have been missing, my hair would have been disheveled, my dress would have been dirty, and both my knees would have been skinned. LOL!! That's what happens when you're the last of 6 and the only girl. No girly-girl for me...I would have never survived!!

Anywhoo, thanks for poppin' in to take a looksee!! Don't forget the challenge going on over at Sundays With Crissy!!! It's all about stitching this month and the DT members will be posting all month long for your inspiration!! If you want to see Crissy's latest digi and rubber stamps they are also on the blog--click--->here!!
Have a great day!!
Sarah ☺

  1. Sweet Sarah, what you did with "Sweet Sarah". I could not resist. ha ha!
    I love how you have situated her in the oval. The colours are gorgeous too -- my fav -- blue, with brown. The rows of pearls are a beautiful addition too, and so are the punched edges. Gorgeous hun, your Mom will love it I'm sure!
