90th Birthday

Hi Everyone,
I didn't get much done this weekend. One card that is all. I was on the phone most of the morning Satuday trying to order a treadmill which didn't happen. Long story but I think it means I shouldn't buy one. Then I got a call from my credit card company saying that someone used my card overseas and on PayPal. That took over an hour of phone calls to get settled. Now I have to wait for a new card and number. Then after cleaning and laundry we went to a wine release and tour. We tasted about 5 very small cup of wines. I think I may have gone too fast from station to station. Remember my morning. Then we went out for pizza. Our favorite pizza place closed and just reopened. It is called Pizza Plaza and it is run by the nicest man who makes the best pizza. Well after the wine tasting and a beer with the pizza I was in no shape to make cards. I still wasn't feeling to peppy today. I am a cheep date.
I made this card for my dear mother in law. She will be 90 on February 8th. Her favorite flowers are daises and her favorite color is yellow. I used Unscripted Sketches #40 and The Pink Stampers Challenge to use a favorite color and black. Robyn at The Pink Stamper had challenges all weekend. The card also fits a card to give away. The Happy Birthday stamp is by Nina Brackett from a set called Heartily Yours Additions. I embossed it with Zing EP Mustard. The yellow paper is for Sassafras called Wee Bundle. The black CS is from Gina K Designs. The flowers, ribbon and pearls are stuff I had in a basket. I did some black stitching with a gel pen. My Hubby really liked it so I think she will too.
This is all I did this weekend. Not very productive in the area of cards. I hope I get something done during the week but that doesn't happen very often.
Thanks for stopping and please leave a comment and tell me what you think.

Oh Linda, what a fabulous card! To think of being 90, WOW. Sorry to hear your weekend wasn't productive, but at least it sounds like fun (after the credit card think). Here's to a quick week and a weekend full of craftiness...for both of us! Thanks for being Unscripted as always!
