A Very Special Birthday

Today’s my Mom’s birthday!  Yay!  She’s a young 84 today.  I wanted to make her a card like the favorites she loves when we make cards together.  She loves cards with flowers and/or butterflies, so I’ve given her both on this card with my beloved Butterfly Basics stamp set.

FMS239-Butterfly-BasicsI’m still smitten with this stamp set and butterfly dies.  I’ve seen the vellum card stock embossed with a polka dot embossing folder and I love how it looks.  I sandwiched the delicate butterfly between two layers of vellum and added pearls.


And here’s the sketch that this card is based on:

    According to my study, after a property foreclosure home is bought at a sale, it is common for your borrower to be able to still have some sort ofthat remaining balance on the personal loan. There are many financial institutions who try and have all fees and liens paid back by the future buyer. However, depending on certain programs, restrictions, and state legal guidelines there may be some loans that are not easily sorted out through the transfer of lending options. Therefore, the responsibility still falls on the debtor that has had his or her property in foreclosure. Thanks for sharing your notions on this blog site.
