Mother-in-Law Birthday

I was out reading the recent posts, on my blog friends sites and came across this layout for a card. Once I saw it, I got all excited and just HAD to go downstairs to make it! :o) Thank goodness the boys are in bed and Terry understands this "have to make it now" excitement, when it comes to card making! This is going to be Betty's (my MIL) birthday card; she's turning 88 on Tuesday. She's a wonderful Mom and Grandmother and I couldn't have wished for a better MIL. Our boys just love her to pieces . . . as you can see, by the smile on her face, the love is reciprocated.

I think I found yet
another favorite card! Didn't it come out cute?! I used some double-sided paper, that I had bought on a recent little shopping spree with Theresa @ Michael's (when all their scrapbook paper was 7/$1) and the Congrats stamp set (#113770 from the Sale-A-Bration promotion).

No crafting this weekend! :o( Theresa and I are spending "quality time" with our fellas (husbands included) and traveling to St. Louis this weekend, for
MonsterJam! It's just a 3.5 hour trip from Kansas City + potty breaks. This is our second year, traveling there for this event. It's loud, there's dirt involved, and monster trucks get all banged up . . . everything boys love! Our Dad & LaDonna are even going this year too! We should have a wonderful time! I'll upload pictures, once we get back . . . not too many, I promise! :o)

Once I come home, I've got to finish up my swaps, for the Nebraska Regionals . . . oh, I'm not complaining . . . I can't wait! Lincoln is only a little over 3 hours from here. I going to take parts of the swaps with me this weekend, to finish in the car . . . hopefully Terry will agree to drive?! I'll have to upload the pictures, when they're all done . . . they're pretty cute!

Thanks for stopping by the craft room!
Have a great weekend!


  1. Happy Birthday to your MIL!

  2. Hey sissy that card for Betty turned out very pretty. I bet she LOVED it!!!!! I am finishing up getting stuff ready for our traveling adventure tomorrow morning! It's a big boy and little boys weekend for sure. (I will have to say that I really think that my sister and I are the ones that scream while we are there over all of the boys) The shirts are backed!! WOOHOO See ya in the morning!!!

  3. The card is beautiful. I am sure Terry's mom will love it. I hope you all enjoyed St. Louis.
