My mom's birthday card

This week at Tuesday Morning Sketches..we have such a pretty sketch..i've made it several times..well two times because i like it so well!  Our sponsor is "There She Goes"!

This week i used a stamp that has a great memory for me.  I used to have a candy store (short period of time) above a Cross Stitch Market..remember when those were really popular in the late 80's?  Well, there was this pamphlet i just loved and had purchased with the "someday" intention of stitching it up...well that day didn't come and in the moving i did, i got rid of it.  Well, the silly part of me, tracked it down and purchased it again..(Yeah, it will probably not get stitched again...)  I will share a picture of the pamphlet below and you will see how similar this stamp is from Penny Black.

Here is my card with the stamp called "Best Friends" from Penny Black:
