My Mom's Birthday

Today is my mom's birthday.
To celebrate, we're going to Winnipeg
and taking her out for lunch at Santa Lucia.

Here's the card I made for her.


I used some gorgeous (& fun to use!) new stamps from Altenew called Painted Flowers.
The sentiment is Wet Paint from Papertrey Ink.

After lunch, I'm taking the kids to go and see
How To Train Your Dragon 2-- should be a great day!

I'm also linking all three of these cards to this week's 

Thanks for looking!
