Happy Birthday Mom!!!!

Hello fellow crafters!! I'M BACK!! YAAAY!!!! Lots of amazing changes in my life which kept me away from crafting. My boyfriend and I moved to Northern California for work back in February and I've been trying to get our home back in working order. Mostly so I could craft but also so we could find our clothes…who am I kidding, it's so I could craft!

So here's my first project back! It's my moms 74th birthday and I wanted to make her something special! I found this card on Pinterest and HAD to make it. I LOVE Pinterest….sooo much inspiration there!

It's a standard A2 card with some embossing and a knife pleat ribbon. Lots of stuff I've never tried before so I thought why not!?! I pierced, layered even did some hand stitching. I'm still trying to learn how to stitch paper on my sewing machine, just got to find my sewing machine!!! Hehehe. I had a hard time with the knife pleat, big hands and small ribbon don't mix sometimes….especially when you're trying to do tiny little folds on it. So after six hours of messing with it I finally quit and asked a very talented friend of mine who makes clothing to do it. She did it in 10 minutes. JEEEZ!!!! Thanks Kaja!!!

Here's the sentiment on the inside.

I think it turned out pretty good for my first card back and doing stuff I've never tried before! Hopefully you all enjoy!!! I'll be back soon with Design Team projects for Regina at The Cutting Cafe!!!

Here's my mom and I on the trolley in San Francisco. She came up from Los Angeles to help me unpack and feel more comfortable at home. Thanks Mom!! I couldn't have done this big of a move without you and Whitney!!! I love you both sooooo much and miss you!!!

In Chinatown.

And here's one of my boyfriend and me at Alcatraz Island with our beautiful new home in the background!!

Here's one of my most favorite views ever!!! The Golden Gate Bridge!! I still can't believe that I'm here!!!
