It all started with one of my little berry baskets that I had been saving because "I just might need them someday" and I actually did. I cut a piece of patterned paper to fit in the bottom and glued another underneath (I sandwiched the basket in between the two pieces of paper) for stability. Then I wove a ribbon through the basket and tied a bow. The card is made from my usual Doodlebug embossed white cardstock. The rub-ons are American Crafts and the letter stickers are Making Memories. The strawberry is my own design and pieced with My Mind's Eye and We R Memory Keepers. The flower is cut from Doodlebug's glitter cardstock. I filled the basket with a bag of strawberry bon bons. I love how it turned out. I think she will like it.
Remember all of the square cards that I have been posting lately. Well, I have been slowly getting them done for my mom for Mother's Day. I have to start early and I still usually end up staying up really late getting them done (like last night). Anywhoooo.......here's the last one. There are 16 in total. I was planning on 20 but the container I made for them is at maximum capacity with 16, so 16 it is.
And there you have it. My mom loves giving handmade cards and I make her a stack every year. She is the BEST mom and so amazing. I admire all that she has accomplished and she is really the greatest grandma. I love watching her with my kids and my niece and nephews. We are all getting together for a little cookout tomorrow. I can't wait to spend a little time with my family. Hope you have a nice, relaxing Mother's Day (whether you are a mom or not) because you deserve it!
