Happy Birthday Mom!

All my plans were for naught. I was going to add bling and gadgets to my blog and make multiple posts over the long weekend; but, alas life happened. LOL.

My mom's birthday is on Thursday and I a have mailed the card on time this year. The layout is challenge SSS37 from The Sweet Stop. The beautiful woman is one of many that Sparkle N Sprinkle has in two sizes. I colored her with Prismacolor pencils and baby oil. I read recently that baby oil works like the odorless mineral spirits and I totally agree. I have not had the greatest results with the spirits and found the baby oil to blend easily. Added a little bling with spica markers and glitter glue. The sentiment says The secret of staying young is... (outside) Living honestly, eating slowly and lying about your age. Lucille Ball (inside). I hope my mom likes it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Happy Stamping Ladies!
