Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms, Mommas, Mommys, Mommys to Be, Hope to Be Moms and Furbaby Moms!  Of course, the Happiest Mother's Day to my Mom! And my Mother-in-Law. I seriously don't know what I would do without them.

I wanted to share the card I made for my mom this year and the gifts the kids and I made. 

I used the stamp set called Everything Happens to be Wonderful by Unity Stamp Company. I made a mask so I could stamp the flower repeatedly around the edge. 

I colored the flowers with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and used a white paint pen to add some details around the flowers. 

I stamped the sentiment on a piece of vellum and cut out some little banners. I hand stitched those onto the card.

Spectrum Noir Markers Used: LV3 PL4 PL3 PL2 CR8 PP5 PP4 PP2 TN6 

For the gifts the kids and I searched Pinterest. We found these cute photo frames made from Washi Tape and popsicle sticks. Lily was a big help in picking out the Washi Tapes and Deacon helped with the photos. The other kids weren't that interestd in actually making the presents once we picked them out. 

This is the one we made for my Mother-in-Law.

And we made this one for my mom. She took the girls to Disney last year so Lily was thrilled when she saw all the Mickey Mouse tape I had.

We put magnets on the backs so they could be hung on the fridge. I think they came out so cute! Now we need to get some more popsicle sticks so I can make one for myself. Or maybe I should have the hubby and the kids make it for me!
