Add Another Candle...

Last week it was Dad's birthday... today it's Mum's special "cake n' candle" day! *wink* Other persons to celebrate is Bill Cosby the actor/comedian, George Washington Carver who studied the peanut and according to historians... Julius C'sar the Roman Emperor all celebrated a birthday today... or would have!

What can I say about Mum's... the care provider of the family, keeping constant vigilance over us from the day we're born until the day one of us leaves this Earth. I feel that Oprah has said it best... "Being a mother is the toughest job!"

My own Mum is always generous with lending a helping hand when I seemingly need it most! For instance... spending quality time with our daughter during the summer while I work or lending me her vehicle when mine's in the shop... never mind the occasional "surprise" meal on a day that you truly couldn't think your way out of a paper bag by dinner time! *wink* Mum's truly know the meaning of selflessness, which we can only understand fully once a Mum ourselves.

Supplies List: SU! Rose Romance, Basic Black and Pretty In Pink cardstock, SEI "Penelope's Potpourri" adorned dots double-sided 12 X 12, VersaMark ink pad, Outlines Dot Background Sm, Xyron 250 Create-A-Sticker, Barbara Trombley's "Ultrafine ANGEL DUST" Art Glitter, AC Moore $pot ribbon, Sakura Gelly Roll "white" pen, Kandi-Tool pearls and paper clip.

Modifications made to this card include the use of black cardstock with white piercing and paper clip. The love of a mother is like a butterfly.

I look forward to our next visit. Until then...
