Today is my mother's 93rd birthday.  This isn't the card I'm giving her but wanted to mention her special day here even though she won't see it.

Using card parts from my basket always feels good.  A while ago I did make up several cards from pieces I found in my baskets (Yes, I have more than one basket of them).  The basket of flowers is actually made up from two separate stamps.  I stamped them off who knows how long ago at one of the gatherings we have in Des Moines each year.  I finally colored it with Copic markers, put it together and "sat" it on half of an SU doiley.  I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with the background so I pulled out several large stamps.  I decided on the one with the stripes and inked it with SU Soft Suede ink which tended to blend well with the brown of the basket.

Thanks for stopping by!

It was a very very long time ago! I don't know if it was mine, but I do have it. It is from Gina K and has lots of stuff to go into the basket. I like your choice though!
