Mother's Day Card for My Mom

I just returned from a quick trip to Oahu (as always) to spend Mother's Day with my mom.  Shucks, hubby couldn't make this trip.  We had a little family brunch with Mom today.  Yikes, sorry, no pix.  Here's the card that I made for her.  The happy little girl image is "Misaki" by Sister Stamps.  So kawai'i (cute).  I paper-pieced her kimono with washi paper.   

Also used the following to create this scene:
DP from stash
Bamboo die by Hero Arts
Bamboo Trellis dies by Elizabeth Craft Design
Balloon die - C.C. Designs
Scallop and Butterfly punch by EK
Loop Die by Sizzix
Distress Ink
Pearls by Kaiser Crafts

I also ran into my dear friend who was my Maid of Honor at our wedding.  Though I only got to chat with her for 10 minutes, it was FUN and so exciting to see her again.  Being on a different island, we kind of lost touch over the years.

I really miss our eldest son and his girlfriend so it was WONDERFUL to spend time with them.  Yesterday, we enjoyed dinner at El Churro, a Mexican restaurant.   Here are pix of what we ordered.

I had the Chicken us locals would say, "Broke da mouth."

My son's girlfriend always eat healthy.  I should learn from her.  She enjoyed the Chicken Salad.

And our son grinded the Carnitas.  He has a HUGE appetite and I actually find it entertaining watching him eat.  LOL

Thought I'd share more pix of their pets.  Here's Ripley (mellow kitty) and the 2 rats.  They don't even faze her.  LOL

And here's Eli ready for nap on his kitty hammock.  All of their pets live a good life.   :-)

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous week.  Till next time, HAVE  A SCRAP HAPPY DAY.
