Just a quick post today ... technically, I'm still on "vacation" but it's really really hard to stay away! I have plans to do some MAJOR stamping over the next few days ... can't WAIT! John and I are going out to dinner with some friends tonight .... an actual adult night out!
My Mom's birthday is on Christmas Day. I know, you're probably gasping at the thought ... BUT Mom has never really minded it much. When she was a kid, there was no money so the "getting jipped in the gift area" was not an issue, and many people remember her birthday because it's on Christmas Day! It's unique, that's for sure!
This is the card I mailed to my Mom for her birthday. I always try to give her a traditional birthday card ... not a Christmas card. It is a CASE of THIS CARD by Cici510 on SCS. The flower center is an over-sized self-adhesive rhinestone I found in the wedding section of my local Michael's store.
