After returning home from my shopping trip, I was able to put the finishing touches on the mother's day projects for my mom and Ron's mom. I made them both the same thing and got the idea for the frame from My Mind's Eye blog. You can look at my inspiration here: http://mymindseye.typepad.com/blog/2011/05/mothers-day-frame.html
Here is my take on it and the card that I made:
I found $5.00 frames at our local Pamida store, sanded it lightly, and applied crackle glaze. Once the glaze dried, I applied white paint. I used Fancy Pants Road Show papers for both the cards and the frames. Other supplies I used was the Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Tim Holtz stamps, Doodle Bug and October Afternoon rub-ons and Thickers. The flower on the card was made with ribbon I had on hand and Cosmo Cricket Glubers......love these........they are awesome.
Now, for the rest of my Mother's Day.......my son, Tyler, took me out to lunch at Ground Round. We had a great time and so enjoyable to be able to spend time just the two of us and catch up. In case you are wondering why we left my hubby at home, Ron has been going pretty much 24/7 all week planting corn. We had enough rain this morning that he couldn't get back in the field and he decided to stay home and get some much needed rest. The only thing that would have made it better is if my daughter could have made it home from college and have lunch with us. Tyler also presented me with a gift certificate to a local green house. When we got home, I had a much needed nap as my early morning shopping trip caught up with me.
So looking back on the day, even with the early morning shopping trip, it was a great day. Did some crafting, shopping, lunch with one of my two favorite guys and a nap, yes it was a pretty darn good day. Until we meet again on my gravel road.
