Happy Birthday Mom

This weekend was my Mom's birthday. We got together with her on Sunday afternoon for coffee and cake and then had a simple and delicious dinner. I feel very blessed to have my parents live so close to me, making celebrating these days together possible.

Of course I made my Mom a birthday card. Using flowered paper, because everyone who has a birthday in the dead of winter deserves a flower birthday card.
The patterned paper is from the Beautiful Life line by Echo Park.

I inked the edges on this card, which is something I have not done in a while, and I love how it makes the papers pop against each other.
After I was done my Mom's card, I had a few paper scraps left on my table so I quickly put together this card, which I will keep on hand for my Oma's birthday in March.
Making cards for the special people in my life makes me so happy, especially when I see how happy it makes them to receive a handmade card. Sharing my love of the handmade and seeing the joy it brings to others is one of the many reasons I craft.

Have you made cards for anyone lately? Or anything else?

Thank you for reading and have a fantastic day.
