Papertake Weekly–For Mum Challenge

Today’s challenge over at Papertake Weekly is a card for Mum.  With Mother’s Day not too far off, this should be a super easy challenge, but for me, if was even easier, since It was my Mom’s Birthday on Sunday, the 16th.  My beautiful Mom turned 84 and not a day goes by that I am not aware of how blessed I am to have her in my life. She is and always has been everything a girl could ask for and I love her  so very, very much! 

By the way, I know you’re wondering how my Mom could have a 26 year old daughter…and all I can say is…just go with it. Winking smile

For my card, I’ve  chosen this sweet image from Lili of the ValleyA Special Gift along with the FAB sentiment set, Simply Sophisticated, that I won from Lili of the Valley!! WHOOT!! I also used lots and lots of lilacs and lavender Maja Designs papers  on this card, in particular, because, just like me, these are Mom’s favorite colors.
I saw a sentiment on Pinterest that I thought was perfect for the inside sentiment of Mom’s card.

A Mother is your first friend,
Your best friend,
Your forever friend.
Happy Birthday, Mom!!

Simple and yet true, right?
