~~Happy Birthday to my MOM~~

My mom turns 81 today and I wanted to make her a special card!!!  She lost my dad a year ago and I want so much to make her day special for her!!  When dad passed i moved her in with husband and myself because she is no longer able to quite take care of herself..  Dad played the most important role in her life and she has been somewhat lost without him!!!  So today like everyone else in my family I always make their favorite meal a desert of their choosing and a special card and present just from me!!!  Not only is this day special to her but with all the difficulty in adjusting to each other on a daily basis it is special to me because of the years I was not able to spend her birthday with her due to distance of where we live!!!  Happy Birthday Mom you are very special to me!!!!!

I used SYI and Serenade carts for this card !!!  Embossed the birdcage with Tim Holtz distress embossing powders.  Anyone recognize the little felt birds from the $1 bin at M's????  This card was inspired from a card I saw on scrapbook.com which I go to often when my mojo is absent for the day!!!!!  Thanks for looking!!!
