Purple for my Mama

 Happy Friday!
It seems like forever since I posted a card for sorry for that! But here I am now with my sweet Mama's birthday card for this year!  She loves purple so I just had to make a purple themed card for her!

What's better than a big ole birthday cake on a birthday card.....nuthin'! Heehee!  I got this digi image before I was smart enough to make separate files for each designer....sorry I don't remember where I got this one!
The sentiment is a Kim Hughes stamp that I think I've used about a million times! I just love her hand writing!
The little purple things around the cake is supposed to be confetti. I'm not so sure I achieved the look I was going for, but anyways...I made them using tiny circles I scrunched up around the end of a pen.
I wrapped the book I got her in some tissue paper I had in my stash and then made a flower using crepe paper.
I just gathered, twisted and wrapped the crepe paper into a flower and then cut out a few leaves to go along with it. I like how it turned out!  By the way...the book I got her is The Pioneer Woman Cooks (Ree Drummond) and I thought Mama would enjoy reading it.  It has recipes and beautiful photography and funny things and since she loves recipes, I thought she'd enjoy this book a lot.

Well that's about it for today! Thanks for stopping by to see me and please do come again! Until then, have a wonderful 4th of July holiday and I'll see ya next time! HUGS! :)

P.S. Be sure and visit my house blog on Sunday the 3rd for a peek at my mantel scape I created for the 4th of July!

Pin It!
