Hello to you from Missouri and Happy Mother's Day to those of you celebrating today!!
Just want to invite you all to another Linky Party at Make It Monday. Feel free to showcase something new, something old, something borrowed, or something blue. We want to see what's happening in those creative minds of crafters all around the world!
Meljen's Designs rocks, and they have offered up images to use for this weeks party as well as sponsoring the prize! I actually went on their website to pick one for the challenge and ended up buying a boat load of them for my personal use. This is one called Family Flowers.
Card base is standard white cardstock with a layering of corrugated cardboard from Linda's shop located here. The image is then framed with black cardstock. Added some twine and a lovely felt heart gifted to me by my grandmother, 'Thank you Grammy' and viola...happy family card.
Ohhhh, the clouds! Did you notice the clouds? LOL...Thank you Chrissy for the tip on these. I have so far to go before I get to her level of expertise. Hers don't smear. I just convinced myself that a storm was moving in to justify the eye sore smudges. ;)
This little card is in the mail for a very dear couple, my grandmother's BFF and her hubby, to say thank you for their most generous and thoughtful donation to my son's fundraiser. Family is that which you are born into and the rest are those that supersede friendship and find a very dear place in your heart.
Speaking of the heart, here's a card that I love...
PICK OF THE WEEK!
I chose this amazing carousel card, designed by Laurel at Laurel's Crafty Retreat. This project is beyond amazing and the horses even go up and down!! See more pictures by clicking here.
Here's my Mother's Day gift.
We took the pictures yesterday and spray painted the old brown frames black as well as the wooden letters. The mirror was $5 at a thrift store. I asked that it be fun and a little topsy turvy.
I LOVE IT!
My son put on a mustache for his photo op and my daughter posed as to say, "goofball" while looking at him. :)
Favorite quote from my favorite author, on being a mother...
