thank you, mom...

To the best mom there is...

She is truly a beautiful person inside and out, and even though I have been thousands of miles from her the past 10 years, I still feel closer to her than ever. Every time we talk, it's like talking with a best friend, you just pick up right where you left off. She never judges me, she always wants the best for me. I can only hope I do as well of a job with my daughters as she did. I wanted to thank her for always being there for me...


This card is stamped with My Mind's Eye - Stella and Rose Gertie Girly Stamps (doilies) onto white cardstock, then I used a Pink Paislee Parisian text paper, a Studio Calico sticker, and a Papertrey Ink Turning a New Leaf die cut (with Crate Paper). The thank you stamp is from their Mat Stack 1 Collection. See the little zigzags? Those are from the Button Boutique stamp set. I'll be using those a lot when I need a quick stitched look! I stamped them on the tag above and below the sentiment as well.

On the inside, I decorated the bottom border using Papertrey Ink's Tag-it's #2 stamp set.

I bought my mom one of these, along with some other stuff. She loves to decorate her house and I thought this one would be so pretty with photos hung below it. I also wrapped up one of these little chocolates (below) to tuck inside with the other gifts...I printed out the saying, cut a long strip, wrapped it around the package and stapled it, then trimmed the ends.

To all the moms out there, have a happy Mother's Day this weekend and I hope you can enjoy a day of NO cooking *wink*!

(I'll be back soon with the winner of the mini book!)
