A Birthday Card for My Mom

First of all, I have to say Happy Birthday to my mom. She's 49 years young today! (Yes mom, I just told all my internet friends your age.) Here is the card that I made for her. I combined two stamps from Lindsay's Birds & Branches Set. This card is very much my mother. She loves the trees in the spring.
I used this week's sketch from Friday Sketchers.
Here is what the inside of the card says. (No I didn't come up w/this on my own. I looked at cards at walmart, found one I liked and used my cell phone to take a picture of the inside sentiment!)
Now I just had to show you some of Lindsay's new sets. I haven't started working on them yet, because I just keep going back to her older sets, but I wanted you to see them as well. Click on the photos below to purchase. They're just $5.00 each!
Now don't forget to stop by Lindsay's blog to get a freebie!

Now for your Thursday Freebie! I made this bulletin board for the entry way at our church (Hickory Grove Church of Christ). I used a cute little digi freebie from Dustin Pike. I printed the image on a transparency and then used an overhead projector to trace it on a poster board to make it really big. These are the cute little 3D flowers I made to go on the bulletin board. You can download them below.
