~The Cutting Cafe Inspiration...For That Wonderful Mom & 2011 Calendar Set~

The cutting cafe blinkie
I hope everyone had a wonderful President's Day for those that had it off. Back to work but at least it'll be a short week for most! Today I have some inspiration for you from The Cutting Cafe! Why?? Because they're our monthly sponsor over at Craft Us Crazy for the month of February and I just love all of Regina's stamp sets and files, probably why I'm on her DT as well. It's easy to promote a company when you love their products!! 

My moms birthday is coming up on March 5th, and with not being close to home, I wanted to make her something special that she could use at work. So as soon as Regina showed me this sweet set, For That Wonderful Mom, I knew I wanted to use it for her birthday. Don't get me wrong, there's so many wonderful verses, that I'll be using it for Mother's Day also. But I knew I wanted to use these sweet words to tell my mom how special she is on her birthday. I used the 2011 Calender Printable Stamp Set from The Cutting Cafe as well. I immediately knew which image I wanted to use with these sweet words. It's Dress Up Time from Kelley Kid's. I thought she was just adorable and would look perfect on the gift I wanted to make my mom. Soooo...with that said..this is what I came up with...
 I made her a post it note and calendar frame that she could use on her desk at work. It's made with an 8 x 10 acrylic from that I picked up from Michael's the last time I was in Tucson. I've always wanted to alter an acrylic frame, but have always been intimidated by them. I have to say though I had fun with this one! 
I know I won't be able to wait until March 5th, so this will be shipped out this week I'm sure lol I'm bad at keeping things until the right dates. But anyways, I hope you like it, and I really hope my mom likes it when she gets it!  Below are a few more pictures of the back and again of the front so you can see the glossy accents on the shoes and bow, and the liquid pearls on her necklace. The image is up under the frame, so it's not easily seen. 
Thanks for looking and I hope you'll check out The Cutting Cafe and Kelley Kid's for more inspiration!! And we hope you'll join us over at Craft Us Crazy for our current challenge!!
