CCMC356, Seize The Birthday and Our Balcony ~ GREAT Combo!

The BEST afternoon ever ~ sitting on our balcony and creating ~ talk about relaxing! I found these   challenges at Create With Connie & Mary & Seize The Birthday ~ and so I got right to work!

 I need a birthday card for my wonderful mother and I'm very pleased with the outcome ~ we will celebrate her 80th birthday this weekend with a surprise Birthday luncheon ~ we have about 100 people coming to celebrate with us ~ I know mom will be blessed ~

And so while I was enjoying my time, I created two more cards!
