Birthday Card and Altered Gift Using Scrabble Tiles


My mom is turning 60 this Saturday! Her birthday is just 2 days after Maddy's birthday! I am busy getting ideas and trying to get my ducks in a row for her birthday party. Invitations went out late...oops! but I did get them out! I started decorating a bit today and can't wait til it all comes together.

Last week I took a few minutes to make my mom a card. I know she really appreciates the ones I make so I try to always make her birthday and Mother's Day cards. I saw this card on Pinterest by Amber Davis and pinned it right away. I grabbed some of my moms favorite paper that I am now hoarding for projects for her and lift the pretty card by Amber.
I just realized I forgot a pearl for the center of the flower. I better go do that before I forget! Now this doesn't seem very Birthday-ish. But I couldn't find a rub on or stickers I liked to spell Happy Birthday. So I went with 'smile'. I came across a poem on Pinterest that I really liked and wrote that out inside. You can find the poem .
I used a satin flower I had made. I just love those flowers!

I have been collection scrabble tiles all summer. I wanted to make ornaments for everyone in the family, but after adding up all the A's I decided that it just wasn't going to happen. So I came up with these instead:
I thought they would be cute sitting in front of picture or on a shelf or ?????? I used some flowers I had made on these little guys too!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I also hope that everyone is staying safe in this crazy weather we are having.
