This is the card I made for my mom for her birthday. It's her birthday today!!! :) 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!! I'll love you forever. I'll like you always. As long as I live, your baby I'll be. 

If you all know that book, we put it in every birthday card to each other. :) I have the best mom and am so blessed! She is the reason I started making cards... and then she demanded that I make cards for her throughout the years - and then that turned into a true love of making cards and here I am today! So while this one was not made with scissors and construction paper, it is made from the heart. 

I made this card at the most recent Circle Crop last Friday - which was a blast! A huge thanks to Rita (the Circlet that put on the event), Monique and Wendy who helped out a ton, and of COURSE Provo Craft for putting it on!!! Thank you so much! 

My new friend Diana Larson inspired me with the idea of two patterned paper strips which when accordianed (new Court word!), turned out to be a great idea! Thanks for the idea Diana! 

I made this all using Artful Delight's June Kit! Make sure to grab yours before it's too late!!!

Great card...I don't know why...but whenever I read that book to my kid's...I would tear up. As soon as I read what you wrote...I teared up. Lee-Ann :)

You are so funny Courtney, thanks for the shout out and the new terminology. I had a blast. I'm sure your mom loved the card. I posted a photo on my blog of the two of us and more. I don't know if you have had time to check it out. Your mom must be thrilled to have such a thoughtful and talented daughter.
hugs. Diana
