Mojo Birthday Wishes

This is for my SIL, Mary, who will celebrate her birthday next week. Happy {early} Birthday, Sis! And the fun part is that I will in MN to celebrate with her!

I used Julee's Mojo Monday #88 sketch for my card. This doubles as my card for the Mojo Monday challenge and also for Stampin' Out Alzheimers (SOA). My starting point was the big bird on the pink patterned paper. It was so cute that I didn't want to cover it up, so I moved the rectangular panels and sentiment to the left side. See the big green button? It's not really a button -- it's actually a punch! Pretty fun, huh?!

Personal Note: I'm going to take about a week off while we take a vacation to visit family in MN. I had planned on having some scheduled posts for while I was gone, but my cervical disc issues have really slowed me down -- it is nearly impossible to tie ribbon with 2 numb fingers! I'm hoping to relax a bit while I'm gone and hopefully the time off will help speed up the healing time. As always, thanks for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful week! I promise I'll back soon!
