Happy Birthday Gift Bag

I just love making my own gift bags.  Tomorrow is my mom's 77th birthday.  I got out my Gypsy and cut some flowers from the Art Philosophy cartridge and then added the Happy Birthday phrase from Paper Lace.  The tag is also from Art Philosophy.  I kind of customized the sizes to fit my bag.  The flowers were cut at 3.50 (for the tag) and 4 inches.  The scalloped oval and the tag and the phrase were customized sizes.  I hope Mom has a wonderful day.  It very well may be our last to share with her so it will be bittersweet for us.  As I have posted before, Mom is in the end stages of breast cancer.  We spend our days working and caring for her.  I love the time I have gotten to spend with her.  I just wish she had been able to get out and go more so she could have enjoyed her remaining time.  She loves being outdoors but now it is so cold.  She loves shopping (mainly just going and looking around) but I am so afraid to take her with all the flu going around.  So basically we just sit and watch TV together.  Her gift from us is an MP3 player because she loves music too and I thought that might be something to help her fight the boredom of being housebound.

Thanks for stopping by to visit.  I dont post often now as I have very little time to create.  Everyone please hug your moms if you are still fortunate enough to have them.  Most important of all.....encourage every woman in your life that you love to have their yearly exams and get their mammograms!!

Until next time......Tracy
