Celebrating Mom

Tomorrow is Mother's Day, and I need to take a few moments and tell you about my Mom.  She will be 84 years young in September this year and she is amazing!  She loves to mow and take care of her yard.  It has been said that walking on her lawn barefoot is like walking on velvet.  One of her favorite activities is bowling, and for several years she has participated on a bowling league.  Her team placed first in the league this season!  Don't you just love her smile?!!

A 12x12 sheet of Very Vanilla cardstock and 2 patterns from the Tea Room Designer Series Paper pack form the background for this page.  A length of Calypso Coral 3/8" Satin Ribbon separates the 2 patterns.  The rose and sentiment from the Tea Together stamp set are stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink, and the rose was then colored with Calypso Coral and Old Olive Blends. I used the Large Letter Framelits to cut out the letters to spell "MOM" and then embossed the letters with the Country Floral Embossing Folder.  The rose was die cut with the Tea Time Framelits and the sentiment and mats with the Layering Squares Framelits.  The word "Celebrate" was die cut with the Celebrate You Thinlits.  One of the things I like to do to finish everything off is to brush the edges of all the pieces with ink, and I used Rich Razzleberry and Calypso Coral inks to do this.

I hope you enjoyed meeting my mom!
