Mother's Day Surprise

I thought I would share this wonderful gift set that I made for my mother and this stamp set, Messages to Mom, will be retiring after this month.  I hate to see it go!  I have made cards through out the year with this one stamp set.

Here are views of each item individually!  The gift bag first!

Here are the items I used for the bag!
Stamps: Four Frames, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card Stock: Whisper White
Designer Paper: Summer Garden (retired) 
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Daffodil Delight for sponging
Accessories: Markers for coloring and frame, Scallop round punch for flowers, Glimmer Brads, Decorative label punch, Extra Large two step bird punch, Scallop edge punch, riding hood red ribbon (retired)
Technique: altering gift bag (brown gift bag bought in bulk)

And here is the candle!

Stamps: Messages for Mom
Card Stock: Riding Hood Red, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive
Designer Paper: Summer Garden (retired)
Ink: Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Fire Circle Rhinestone Brads, 1 1/4 round punch, Shimmer paint diluted in spray bottle, Extra Large two step bird punch, markers for coloring, white tissue paper 
Technique: altering candle

And now the card!

Stamps: Messages for Mom
Card Stock: Riding Hood Red, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Daffodil Delight
Accessories: Markers, Firecirlce Rhinestone brads, extra large two step bird punch, Top Note Die, Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder, 1 1/4 round punch, shimmer paint diluted in a spray bottle

And, I had to show the inside of the card which expresses my Mom to a "T"!

The verse is computer generated and then stamped around it.

Thanks for looking and hope you have a very blessed day!

BEAUTIFUL gifts for your Mom, Jonia! How wonderful that you can use those verses in Proverbs to describe your Mother. As a Mother...that is what I intend to be as I grow up! With lots of help from the Lord! ;o) Isn't it nice that we're both back in the blogging world? lol I missed you! :o)
