DH is traditionally awful about doing anything for Mother's Day and the fact that he thought about it while in Iraq, well let's just say that I definitely cried.
The other thing that makes it easier is that my mom is coming to visit today. I pick her up from the airport in 6 hours and I cannot wait!!! My mom and I are very close and it's very rare that I get to actually spend mother's day with her since we normally are so far away. It makes it extra special when I can.
I took a bit of time off from my cleaning yesterday to create a little something up to go with her mother's day gift. The tin is full of little candy bars that have been decorated using the Little Label 2 Kit from Unity.
I talked about the Autumn Leaves calendar page from Friday. This tag was totally inspired from that page. I used the background stamp, TeaTime Pattern, from Unity to make the red medalion. The "M" stamped on top of it is a stamp from Great Impressions. I don't know if you can quite make it out in these photos, but there is a little bit of detail work colored in using my white sharpie on the scroll work around the M. The flowers are also done from the Little Labels 2 kit...first I stamped the circle from that set and then punched it using my flower punch. There is a label in that kit that has flowers in it made from the graduated circles...for my flower centers, I punched those out using a small circle punch...added a brad and a drawn stem, and they were done.
I hope that you all have a fantastic mother's day today....and remember, you deserve a bit of spoiling. If someone else doesn't do it for you, then do it for yourself...you've earned it!
