Happy Birthday, Mom!!

Hello all!

I want to wish my mother a happy birthday (お誕生日、おめでとうございます!). Well, technically where she lives (Tokyo) - it's Happy BELATED Birthday! LOL!! Living overseas, it's hard to keep track of time ;0P Sorry, mom(ママ、遅くなって ごめなさい~!)!

To (sort of) make up for it, I created a card which I haven't done in's usually a LONG phone call or flowers when she's in the States.

Happy Bird-day! card by Margie Higuchi
Spellbinders™ LF-246 Grand Labels Eleven, S4-323 Ribbon Tags Trio Three, S4-112 Classic Ovals SM and S5-031 Fancy Tags Three; My Mind's Eye (Quite Contrary); Bazzill Basics Paper (Pink); Die Cuts With A View (Ribbon-All Dressed Up); Layers of Color (Bird-day Party Set); Stampin' Up (Pink Passion); Prima (E Line Pearls Crystals); GlueArts (PRO GlueGlider); SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L (3D Foam Squares); Ranger Ink (Pink Stickles) and Other: White Cardstock

As you can see, I LOVE SHAPED CARDS! Ever since I got the Grand Calibur™ and the Grand Nestabilities®, that's all I want to make! LOL! SO easy to do. With its HUGE plates, you can make them in less time. For example, I fit the smaller Grand Labels Eleven, the Ribbon Tag Trio Three, the Classic Ovals SM and the Fancy Tags Three die templates all at once with room to spare! Love it!
