Happy Birthday MOM!

Today is my mom's birthday. I won't reveal her age - she doesn't look her age, so you probably wouldn't believe me if I told you how old she really is. It's that Mary Kay that she's been using for eons...I can only hope that it works on me!!! If I could have, I would have made a batch of brownies and grabbed my Steele Magnolias movie and we would have sat down and watched that today. But, I had to work....We used to watch Steele Magnolias ALL the time - we even had it memorized for the most part, and honestly, I could probably still repeat it almost word for word. I still think one of the best lines that comes to mind right away: "Looks like two pigs, fightin' under a blanket" or, "That Jackson, he's one hanging man". Lord, I could go on and on. I always referred to my mother as Ouisa, who's best line might just have been, "I saw Drum Eatenton in the Piggly Wiggly and I smiled at the son of a bitch before I could help myself"! Damn, that's a good movie. Note to self: must watch real soon! Anyway, here's to you mom! Happy Birthday!!! And here's what I made my mom for her special day:

For this creation I used Porcelin Prints Designer Series Paper, Taffy Alphabet, Make It Count (Hostess Stamp Set), Wild Wasabi and Blue Bayou Classic Stamp Pads, Wild Wasabi, Blue Bayou and Very Vanilla Cardstock. Frame from WalMart. Pretty darn cool - eh? *Patting self on back* Must make more of these. They are simple and quick and just so cool! Dontcha just love me!
