Fast and Fabulous!

Hey there, hope you had a wonderful weekend.
I know we did full of family and laughter. Yesterday we went into Edmonton to take the kids to my nephew's 12 Th Birthday Party, followed by a family dinner to celebrate the 3 birthdays in our family that fall in the later part of March and the first 3 weeks in April. It was totally awesome (even my Husband's Grandfather enjoyed the food) - We went to the new Asian Village....which could have turned out terribly as we went there with Grandpa (who is 91 and still living in his own 100%) and 4 kids.

But anyways this is the card I made for my Mother-in-Law's Birthday.
I chose not to use a sentiment- she is an avid recycler so I made the card re-giftable (if she chose to do so). For the inside of the card I left it blank and added an insert with a sentiment and the birthday wishes on it; I put a small note on the backside saying "Please feel free to re-gift this card". I think she was very delighted and she loved the card (she's been known to do some stamping herself) :) 

I got the theme from over at the Pals Paper Arts Blog -  PPA89 which was Flowers, which just fit the bill perfectly as Lil is also an avid gardener ;)

cardstock: Chocolate Chip & Whisper White - SU
dp: Elegant Soiree - SU
ribbon: also Stampin Up
ink: Memento (only because I was feeling too lazy to go downstairs to grab my SU inks)
other: Scalloped Edge Punch - SU

Thanks so much for stopping by and please stop by again soon :) Have a great week,
