Happy Birthday, Mom!

Today is my mom's 65th birthday. My sisters and I (our families, too), went out to dinner to celebrate last night. We had a great time. It's always fun to get together with family, especially when all 11 of the grandchildren are there. The 11 were born within 7 years, so they're all close in age. (I shared each of my pregnancies with one or both of my sisters). The roll count is as follows: one 14 year old, one 13 year old, three 11 year olds, three 9 year olds, two 8 year olds and one 7 year old. Christmas is a blast!

Anyhow, back to the art. This was the card I made for my mom, which I thought I would enter in the Moxie Fab World's "Let's do Classy & Elegant".
For her gift, I made a money pocket/wallet to put some cash in. My mom desperately wants a new kitchen, so my sisters and I thought we may as well inch her to it. That is why the front sentiment reads: "Fresh Baked Kitchen".

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
