A special card commissioned by a special person - my mother-in-law :)


My mother-in-law is an amazing person.  She just celebrated her 80th birthday last month - my sisters-in-law, brother-in-law, and my husband went all out to give her a HUGE surprise party and all four of her children, their spouses, most of the grandchildren and her new great-granddaughter were here, some from out of town (WAAAAAY out of town - as in Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Seattle . . . ).  She had NO idea about her surprise party, believe it or not!!  It was great :)

Anyway, she had gotten an invitation to a 90th birthday party (coincidentally, the day after HER party!) and asked me to make a card for her.

I don't normally use much that isn't Stampin' Up! but my sweet sister-in-law from Wyoming, who is as crafty as they come, surprised me with her "old" Cricut machine when she arrived in town.  I was freaking out!!  So I just HAD to use it for this card.  No actual stamping on this one, just lots of embossing, punching, die-cutting, and bling!!!

Everyone just loved it - I'm crazy for the Concord Crush cardstock - actually can't wait to try it paired with the new Wisteria Wonder from this year's In Color collection.

Well, that's it for now - just wanted to share this card.  Hope you like it!

Happy stamping,

Jeni

Card Recipe:
