{MFT} Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my sweet mama's Birthday! I think maybe she is turning 55 but I can't be sure. Just remembering that it was today was a challenge enough for me! Last night I got to thinking it was coming up and looked at the calendar and almost freaked when I saw it was today! Thankfully I'm a pre-buyer and have had her present for months!! She has wanted one of those chef's gel mats for in front of her kitchen sink! I know- she's crazy and wild!! :) I also got her some new golf socks....socks and a floor mat. Yes folks, it's heart-stopping action over here!

I made this card for her using MFT's a la mode You're my Cup of Tea.

I added a little teacup and teabag charm hanging off of the flower/button/hemp embellie. The dies (as well as the inside teapot) are from the die set Always Time for Tea. I used MFT's Hemp twine and a Spearmint button. This whole card is distressed using Kraft ink. I also used Kraft, Spearmint, sweet tooth and X-press it Blending CS. The flower die is the Layered Rose. The sentiment flag strip is from Blueprints 2.

Here's the inside. I used another sentiment from the set alm Hot Cocoa Cutie.

Here's Gramma and her boys! I made her an iced cappuccino and added a candle to the whip :) No Birthday cake, but the Birthday Cap was delish!

I think she likes the card.... HaPpY bIrThDaY MoM!

I used last week's MFT sketch:
