Happy Birthday to my Mom!


Today is my mom's 53rd anniversary of her 20th birthday. LOL! We'll be heading over to my parents' house this afternoon. I have been "sew" busy that I just made a card last night. I used the sketch challenge from Midnight Madness and used a Happy Hopper stamp. My soon to be 11 year old dd loves House Mouse and companion stamps, so when we found them on clearance several months ago we added to our collection. Mom is a chocolate lover and she passed that gene to me. I thought this image was perfect for her. I have a chocolate sheet cake cooling downstairs (I HAD to sample the frosting). It's gluten free so I can have some & doesn't look as pretty as Mom's always does but I hope it will taste good. I made a full of gluten pumpkin cake just in case!

Thanks for hopping by today!

P.S. If you know where we hid Mom's birthday gift, would you let me know?
