A Special Gift for my Mom

So I know that it has been forever since I have been able to get on here and
give you something new to look here is what I have for today...

My Mom just celebrated her birthday on Friday and I wanted to make her
something she would both use and enjoy so this is what I came up with...

A decorated box in her favorite

The box is from Close To My Heart.
It is there Recipe/photo box.

I was happy with the way it came out.
Inside of it I enclosed a whole bunch of handmade cards using
the same blue papers as the box was covered in.

The papers were from the dollar bin section at Michael's.
The sentiments are stamps from Papertrey Ink.

So there you have it...a sampling of the cards I made her to use...
although she always says they are too pretty to use...
that people will just throw them away and she can't see my hard work in the garbage.

I hope to be back soon with some more things to show you.

Have a great day!
