Here's to You!

My mom ALSO retired last week along with my dad.  She worked in the Fire/Rescue administration dept. (same as my Dad) for the last 23 years.  I'm so very happy for my mom.  I remember when I was a Senior in High School she worked 3 jobs at one point just so that she could pay for all of the dues, yearbooks, prom and other things that make senior year so awesome.  It's something I will always be grateful for and showed me the sacrifices that a parent makes for the benefit of their child.  
So, Here's to You, Mom!!  xoxo


For my mom's card, I used Stamping Bella's Uptown Girl - Opal the Optimist.  She was of course colored with Copics.  And although I know how much fun these Uptown Girls are to color, I still find myself thinking "WOW, that was fun!" when I'm finished.  :)  My card started with a base of Ivory cardstock paired with Terracotta Tile.  I love the rich colors in these designer papers from Carta Bella, Traditions.  I added a few clear rhinestones and a fishtail banner with a sentiment from MFT.

Copics Used:
Skin: E13, E11, E00, E50, E93
Hair: E50, E31, E35, E29
Dress: BG78, BG75, BG72, BG70
Wine Bottle: YG97, YG93, YG93, E43, E42, E41
