Sweet Kiyomi...

It is a bitter sweet dad passed away 5 years ago today and it was my mother's birthday yesterday. As the years go realize how precious life is and to enjoy every moment you have with your family and friends. So with that, I really wanted to create a card for my wonderful mom. I had to stop by my dear friend Teri's house the other night to finish up a project for someone who asked for some box #2 favors. So Teri was so sweet to let me use her supplies! I got to use her new stamps that she just got. I think this one is so cute and would be perfect for my mom. Her favorite color is everything is in blue :) I love the border punch from SU. I think I need to get this one!

I am so glad to have had a chance to craft. It's really hard to get yourself back into the swing of things. As soon as the renovations are done...I can't wait to move back in and start crafting! will share with you my new space once it's finally completed! If you are my friend on facebook, you can see how it's coming along.

Thanks for sticking it out with me...hope you have a wonderful weekend! I have a 3 day weekend as Friday is Statehood!

Be Blessed,

Hi Joy!

Your card is precious :)


Love your card Joy! Glad you were able to do some crafting and use this stamp too. Hope your mom had a great birthday!!!


I'm sure your Mom loved her card! It actually looks purple! I loved how it turned out and can't believe how well it turned out being that it was so late when you made this. I can't believe that it's been 5 years already. You are right about treasuring each and every day we have with the ones we love. No regrets! Your living area will be fabulous once it's all done, it will be so worth it! See you soon!


Beautiful birthday card for your Mom! I know she loved it and appreciates everything you do for her. It's so nice to have a crafting friend that you can count one. Little while more and you'll have the dream space you've been wanting! Please extend my HB wishes to your Mom....she's such a sweet and caring person and it's rubbed off on to you!
Hugs, Cami

Have A Scrap Happy Day

Big hugs to you & your mom & Taelyn!


What a sweet birthday card for your mom! Love all beautiful shades of blue you used to create this treasure...I always have such a hard time getting my blues to match! Your copic coloring skills are amazing as always, and all the extra details you added make this card a real keepsake. Looking forward to seeing you back to full swing once the rennovations are pau!


massive hugs i understand too well how these horrid anniversary's next to birthdays can be, it does get easier over time. I always find the days leading upto the aniversaries are worse than the days themselves. a beautiful birthday card for your mum x
