This was a card made for my Mother in law for Mother's Day 2008. I thought it was a cute stamp. The inside has the sentiment from Stampibilities that says "You're my Cup of Cocoa". The background was embossed using the Cuttlebug A2 folder, Swiss Dots. Also used the Gamsol Technique on all the cards that are listed.

Mothers Day Gifts for my Mom

These were made for my mom for Mothers Day 2008. The first is an altered clipboard, middle is an altered easel, and last picture is an altered shadow frame of my moms first great grandchild.

The Clipboard, easel and shadowbox frame was bought from Tuesday Morning and then altered to my liking. You can buy them in kits with all the needed supplies, but I never like the papers when I get started, so I go off on my own. May or may not be a good thing sometimes lol

The clipboard was made for my mom to use up at work. It's pictures of her husband that died Feb 2007, and their poodles, Precious(white) and Tiffany(brown), that have since both passed away over the past 6mths.

The easel pic is of my mom and Doug, and their two poodles, Tiffany and Precious.

Altered Shadowbox with picture of my great niece Nicki. It proved a little more challenging for me but enjoyed making it.
