My Mom

My mom is an amazing woman who totally inspires me. She is really quiet, but has so much wisdom and love to give. She has always supported my dad and has always been there for my brothers and I. She loves God with her whole heart and has committed her life to serving God and others. I don't remember ever hearing her say anything negative about anyone, she is always positive and looks for the best in everyone. Thank you, Mom, for being such a great example to me and my family. I so look up to you and I am striving to possess the great qualities you have. (I know I have a long way to go.)
My mom's birthday was last month, so since I posted my dad's card I thought it only fair to post hers as well. When I saw this stamp set I knew I had to have it. My mom is a bird lover and I thought of her immediately. The stamps are from the All Things of Nature stamp set by The Angel Company. I stamped the quote and the bird and cut them out with my Nesties. I then cut the mats with my Nesties as well. The bird is colored with Copic markers. The pattern paper is digital paper from Cinzia Loosemoore's Spring Inspiration kit. I love this kit. You can find it at www.Digital (I really need to learn how to make links.)
Here is the inside of the card. I am really sorry about the shadows. I guess I need to work on my picture taking abilities. I love "decorating" the inside of my cards. Here I just used a strip of paper from the front adhered to a strip of cardstock, and stamped the little egg from the stamp set on the opposite page. I stamped the sentiment with Papertrey's Birthday Basics set. This is my go-to set for all my birthday cards lately.
