Happy Birthday mommy!

My mommy's birthday is today, I made this card for her a few months ago.  I can't remember where the sketch came from exactly....I misted the back of the card then I used my cricut gypsy to space and cut these flowers out of the card top.  After the mist dried I attached the top to the bottom with adhesive and sewed around the edges.  After that was done using my paper piercer I punched around the edges of the flower and along lines that I created using my ruler & pencil.  After all of that I placed the pearls in the center of the flowers & added this rubon.
I was really happy with how this turned out, it took some time but was SO worth it!

Today is our Primary Program for church.  I have the blessing of teaching the children from the ages of 4-11 to sing (there are around 60 of them), we have been practicing 8 different songs (one of them in sign language) since the beginning of the year.  The children not only sing but will also have speaking parts.  This program is our sermon for the congregation today, it's always every one's favorite because of the children and the special spirit they bring to the meeting.  I'm excited for them because I know they will do well!
So with that I need to run and get ready for the day so we can be on time to make sure I have the right music stand!  (there is one that is loose and dumps the music right on the floor!)
Thanks for stopping in for the visit--have a GREAT day!
