Hippity Hoppity B-day....


Well, in just two days one of my favorite people in the whole wide world will be celebrating a BIG Birthday..My mama! Instead of making her a card, I thought I would take an old photo of her (a very old photo) and create this altered/vintage inspired wax collage to write our sentiments on (on the back of course). A must have for this piece was two of my ALL time fav. Unity Stamps Distressed Dots and Worn Music. I love both of these stamps so much that I find it a challenge to not use them on a project- LOL. I hope she likes it and that she doesn't see this post before it get's to her by mail..
PS Mom- If your looking at this, be surprised when you get it in the mail!!!
Anyhow, thanks for hip hoppin on by today....have you seen the new rubba? Have you checked out the specials? And are you ready to hop on over to the the fabulous blog of Patter Cross
