I heart my mom

Happy Friday friends! Hope you all survived the week! I'm all sorts of excited for this weekend...Sweet Sixteen to Elite Eight NCAA basketball...YEA!! Go State!! We're all really excited for the game tonight...GO GREEN!

I used some Sweet Blush cardstock, MM paper(flower patch), tissue paper, bloom nestabilites, Ocean Tides ribbon and Ink, my SU border punch, and my "It's good to be queen" stamp set from LAD.

This is a little something I made for, if you can guess, yes, my Mom. Love that woman to little tiny pieces. She is perfection in a mother, and every other way too. She is my longest and most sincere friend. She supports me, encourages me, and always has love to give. ALWAYS has love to give. She isn't ever too busy to chat. She loves to just "chat" having no specific need...just the need to chat. She is selfless...constantly thinking about her family and those around. She loves my kids...and they know it. She spends time with them, she makes cookies, cupcakes and treats them all like they are something special. She helps me be a better mom. She helps me be a better wife. She helps me be a better sister. She helps me be a better friend...She just helps me be better period.

After writing about her, I thought I'd better show you what a beautiful momma she is!! This is a photo of her on their last trip to Germany (she came 3 times in 2 years!) before we moved home. It was a wonderful trip...so many wonderful memories. That's another thing she is awesome at, making wonderful memories...I want to be even more like her. Love, Love, Love her.

I've got this card in the mail to her...and yes, she'll see it here first...(sorry to ruin the fun mail mom!) but I wanted to share a little bit of why I love her with you...she is one of my favorite people.

Have a wonderful weekend!! Make it great and Go GREEN!!

**I have added a list of Stamps and a few misc. tools that are looking for new homes. The stamps are all SU and priced very low...**You can see the list on my "Boutique" tab at the top of my blog.**
