Here is the backstory and why I started out my blog today with the above confession. Today is my mother's birthday. Happy Birthday Mom! I won't tell you how old she is because I do value my life but it is not a big one, that was last year ---hint, hint. My mom not only loves Halloween but choclate too, so I had to make a card that incorporates both (at least that is my excuse). Like the loving and wonderful (favorite) daughter I am, I called her this morning to wish her a happy birthday. And I have to tell you I was really offended. The first words out of her mouth were, "You know your sister already e-mailed me this morning to wish me a happy birthday." Well it is not my fault that my sister is so sneaky. Naturally I told my mother that that did not matter seeing as how I am her favorite daughter and the only one who sent her a hand made card and made her a hand made gift. And can you believe it she just laughed at me. The nerve of some people! So here it is:
The inside is stamped Happy Birthday!. For this card I used some patterned paper I bought a couple months ago at Michael's. The chocolate chips are stamped from a Stampin' Up stamp set called Oh So Sweet. The trick-or-treater is from a stamp set by Storage Units inks and more called Kooky Kostumes. Isn't he adorable! I colored him in with my stampin' write markers and then stamped the sentiment with a letter set I bought at the dollar spot at Michaels. I finshed the look with a spatula button and a piece of brown ribbon. It turned out perfectly.
