Chantilly and 50

Hi there everyone!!!

I have had a SUPER busy month! with the Valentine treat bag orders, January ctmh orders and of course my mothers 50th Birthday!

I made her several items, I will post those up later this week. To start off, The family as a whole took her out to dinner this past week to one of her favorite restaurants. They asked me to make her a birthday card... go figure! I should have seen that one coming LOL!

Any way, her other gifts took so much of my free time between work, and family stuff you know how it is that I did wait until the day of the  dinner to put this card together. So I did the easy thing... a Mojo Monday sketch!! I was so excited that it was one that I really liked and saw that it had major potential. Plus I had been itching to get back into doing more mojo monday cards. If you dont know about mojo monday feel free to check them out HERE.

Ok so enough chit chat... here is my Card: 

I absolutely LOVE it!!!!! I love how when I am on a crunch for time... and dont have much time for contemplating my ideas and design, things just turn out SO much BETTER than expected!  Plus I used NEW products from the New Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Book!
