Mom, Sweet Birthday Wishes!

Hello and happy Sunday Ohana!  Can you believe it's already May?!!  Time is just flying by!

I'm here today to share a card I made for my momma.  Today is not only the first day of May, but also her birthday!  I chose the cute Cupcake Marci to shine on her card, (Thank you Irina).  Of course I had to pair her up with some fun BG cupcake paper, and I just happened to get some in the mail the other day, (Thank you Irina).  I paper-pieced her outfit with some scraps from a project Renate and I are working on, added a paper rose to her hairband and colored her in with Copics.  I substituted the heart on top of the cupcake for a yellow rose, which I stamped.  Here she is up close:

The rest of the card came together pretty quickly.  A fun sentiment, a hand-cut banner, a MS border punch, another paper rose, some distressing and here is what the finished card looks like:

This card is going to be accompanied by a yummy lemon-meringue cake, my baker friend, Doreen, made for me.  That's my mom's favorite pie, but she wanted to experiment with a cake version.  Can't wait to taste it.

Ok, just a reminder you can purchase any of the wonderful and cute stamps from La-La Land in the store.  Digital image or deeply edged red rubber, your choice, either way you will love them all.  Lastly, don't forget to upload your cards or projects to the Customer Gallery, I've been enjoying them and we love to see a full gallery of your projects featuring the cute La-La Land images.

Happy May 1st everyone and enjoy the rest of your weekend!!  MAHALO for stopping by!
