Mom's birthday

My sweet Mom turned 90 on November 25th!
She is doing amazing and is the sweetest woman
you could ever meet.
We invited a few family and friends to celebrate
with her.
This is the card I made for her.
The Happy Birthday is from
and the poppy stamp is one of my favorites from
I colored the poppy image with colored pencils
and Gamsol.
I love how this card turned out.
Poppies are one of my favorite flowers.

Here are some pictures from Mom's party.
She'd probably be mad that I'm posting them, 
because there had just been a huge snow storm in
our area (several feet, up to 7 feet in some areas)
and the hair dresser couldn't get in, 
so she thought she looked a mess.
None of us cared what he hair looked like.
I think she looks beautiful no matter what.
This is Mom with "Uncle" Jack a friend of over 70 years.
My #2 brother with his grand kids.
With my daughter and her boyfriend.
With my brother again and his wife.
With my son and his girlfriend.
With my #1 brother's wife.  He was sick and couldn't come.
Never want to spread illness to a 90 yr old!
Getting ready to blow out the candles.
Missed the actual "blow out"
Good thing we didn't have a candle for every year!
We couldn't have fit that many on the cake.
The party was a great success,
we all had a lot of fun, but I wish I 
would have gotten more pictures with the
other guests.
Maybe my sis in law has more.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Come again soon, you never know what I'll be posting about.
