Happy Birthday Mom

Happy Birthday Mommy!!!
Thank you for being such a wonderful Mother and Friend.
I love you.

It's so great having a crafty mom who appreciates and supports what I do.  It's great having a mom who listens to me bounce ideas.  It's great having a mom that doesn't hesitate to jump in and help me move.  It's great having a mom that will sit quietly with me and just create and play.  It's AWESOME having "My Mommy"
This was a joy to color and make.  Yet another I had no plan, it just came together.  The final piece of air brushing over the entire colored image was last minute and I am so pleased with the result.

Here is a quick little step out tutorial.  You can apply this to almost any image you color :)


Here is the color palette...feel free to pin it :)

What a gorgeous card. Love those flowers and how you colored them so perfectly. At first I thought it was a photo of some and did not realize you had colored them yourself. Amazingly lovely!

I love my birthday card . . . but love my daughter beyond beyond and keep going. She's so awesome; both as a daughter and an artist. I am a very lucky mom. I love you, BG, miss you and don't get to spend nearly enough time with you.

This is gorgeous! Cherish every minute with your Mom. I had a Mom similar to the description of your Mom. She was my crafting buddy and my best friend... most of the time (:. She is gone now and a piece of me is forever missing. As soon as I finish any project, my first thought is, I can't wait to show my Mom. I think it will always be that way. It used to make me sad. Now I hope that I always have that thought pop into my head when I finish something. It's somehow comforting to me. Hey, maybe I can borrow your Mom for a little while. I'll give her back, I promise.
