Mojo For Mom

Today is my mom and my brother Paul's birthday's. I was headed to dinner with them last night and tried all day to make birthday cards... but ended up with a sympathy card.. So much for making it elegant!! :D

When I saw the super cute sketch from mojo monday this morning, I thought "Birthday", but was still a bit sluggish getting started.

Both the hubby and my 6 year old daughter have been sick with a stomach bug for two days, and although I'm not sick, being around that makes a person not 100%.

I think this is a cute, bright and cheery card... I may still try and make her something more elegant.. You know ~ it's my mom.. I want to send just the right thing.. :D

The top of the cupcake was done with the faux shaving cream technique. I inked the cupcake top with pretty in pink, then inked a wheel with words on it with the darker pink. A few swipes of the wheel on top, and it made the cute frosting for the topo of my cupcake.

Have a great week! I'll be back to work this week. I have one more swap to send out this week, then I'll be working on a birthday class to help my customers stuff their card pantries. :D
