A Very Special Hip Hop!!!

It's my Mom's birthday today!!!

Happy Birthday, Mom!!!


It's already been an amazing day. I started off the day with a breakfast of champions...or at least the Bryant women! LOL! I get my addiction to these little chocolate wonders from my mom so I just had to eat a few for breakfast in honor of her birthday (I am thinking that today needs to be a double-workout day!)

We also had an amazing sunrise this morning, but I will talk about that in a moment because I uploaded my photos in the wrong order, but if I move them then you can't enlarge them when you click on them. *ugh*
********

So first, I will talk about today's art. I made this card last night for my mom's birthday (yes, I am running a bit behind since this, and her present, will have to be mailed- Sorry Mom!)

Have I mentioned lately how much I love this months kit of the month, Perfect in Every Way?!?  LOVE IT! Most of the images here are from that kit... the flowers, the owl, "perfect", and if you look really closely you can see the faint images of the "relax" in the background of the flower piece. I also added the faint image of the worn music background on the flower piece too.

The layout for the card is based upon this week's Mojo Monday sketch (#89.)

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co Perfect in Every Way (June kit of the month)
*Unity Stamp Co. Worn Music Background
*October Afternoon papers
*StazOn jet black inkpad
*watercolor pencils
*CTMH Desert Sand inkpad
*CTMH Sweet Leaf inkpad
*CTMH Breeze inkpad
*MM mini alpha stickers
*Marvy Uchida scallop punch
*Fiskars Apron Lace border punch
*ribbon
*brads
*pop-dots
*****

And now back to that sunrise from this morning. We get up every morning at 4:00 to workout so most days, I get to see the sun rise, but this morning's was just gorgeous. When I first noticed it, the colors were super-dark purples and pinks. By the time I grabbed the tripod and made it to the end of the block for photos, the colors were a bit more muted although still simply amazing.


I hope that your day has started out glorious too!!!

Now you need to hop on over to...
