Happy Birthday Mom and a SheetLoad Share!!

Today is a very special day because it is my wonderful mother's birthday!! My mom is such an incredible person! I don't know anyone who doesn't love and respect her once they know her. She is the epitomy of sweetness yet has the strongest inner strength you can imagine! I am so happy that we have a relationship that is close. Not only are we mother and daughter, we are friends. There isn't anything that I can't tell my mother... and best of all she still loves me unconditionally and encourages me with her wonderful wisdom.

My niece Lindsay, my mom and my daughter Michelle with me in the back on the 4th of July!

My sister Michelle and I are taking her out to lunch for sushi for her birthday today! It will be a treat to spend part of my day with two of my favorite people in the world! I love my mom and my sister!!

Me, my mom and my sister, Michelle

I love you mom! Happy Birthday!!!
So now I have a SheetLoad card to share with you! This month was the first time that I was a featured Designer for the eZine. I actually was an extra for this month and so I have the pleasure of being featured again next month too! It is so fun coming up with neat ways to use the great sketches that are provided by SheetLoad! I hope that you have snagged your FREE copy and are planning to create some cards with this month's sketch too!

This month's eZine is sponsored by Sweet N Sassy Stamps. They have some adorable stamps both in acrylic and digital form. Click HERE to visit the Sweet N Sassy Store!
Since we are celebrating my mom's birthday today, It thought it was a great idea to share with you a birthday card I made with this month's sketch! This isn't her card, because I can't post it here until I give it to her because she is one of my faithful blog Followers!!

I can't find this cute stamp when I look through their site, so I don't know if it was discontinued, but I was sent it when I won a challenge at the Cutting Cafe. It is really cute and I hope that they will start selling it again! Edited to Add: My good friend Gigi gave me a link where this stamp is still available in acrylic form so I wanted to share that with you. Click HERE to see the set this stamp comes from, it is designed by Korin Sutherland. Thanks Gigi!! For all the details of what materials were used, please refer to the eZine where it is all posted for you!

Here is a picture of just the card...

I used my Copics to color the image and made it coordinate with this adorable We R Memory Keeper's DP. The sentiment is a BG rub on!

Here is a close up of the coloring...

I have three more projects to share with you this month, but I will spread them out over the next few weeks! Be sure to get your SheetLoad copy and make sure that you share with us what you create and also give SheetLoad a Shout Out on your blog, because there are prizes to be won from SNS stamps this month!!

Have a great day and may your bucket overflow with special plans with special people!!
