Birthday Wishes!

Hi Friends!

Hope you had a lovely Mother's Day!  My son picked up BBQ
chicken dinner from the fire station in town.  He bought a
charm for my bracelet.  My husband bought me flowers.  And, 
I joined my sisters and Mom for a Mother/daughter banquet on Saturday.  We really enjoyed ourselves with the men serving us for once!:-)  The food was delicious, and we enjoyed watching the wonderful skit done by several ladies.  The message was to appreciate the here and now.  Isn't that message so true?!  How often do our minds wander to the past of "Oh, I shouldn't have done that or have said this.  Or, ok I have to hurry and do this for tomorrow, etc.  Appreciate each other for we don't know what tomorrow brings.  Anyways, I'll take this moment to say that I appreciate my friends and family!  I thank you for taking the time to view my cards and projects here.  Truly, it's appreciated! 

So, onto my card.  I was late with this entry for Tuesday Morning Sketches.  But, it's ok because I got a card made for another birthday next month.  The card is self-explanatory.
And, I had fun with the Martha Stewart butterfly punches!:-)  Take care and thanks again for dropping by today, hugs!!:-))

  6. Oh my gracious Maria - your creation is absolutely gorgeous. I am sorry but I have gotten behind in my blog snooping. Nothing new for me -- I am slow with everything!~

  7. Maria, this is so pretty! I love blue and yellow together -- and that MS Butterfly punch is my absolute favorite!!! (I confess I think I might use it too often!!!)
