Happy Mother's Day!

Good Morning! 

I wish all of you Moms out there a very HAPPY day!  Hope you are surrounded by love and laughter today and always!

I altered a mini wooden clipboard for my little project today.

I found this at my local craft store for a buck, complete with hardware on back for easy mounting!  I first painted it white and then covered it with Designer Paper by Craft Smith, Tea Party Collection.  And then the FUN began! 

I added a pretty sparkly glitter to the metal clip and topped it off with a chipboard heart, jute twine, button and a tulle doily.  Also added a strip of pink pleated ribbon, string of pearls and adhesive pearls.   Hummingbird die by Cheery Lynn.  

Next I began to create my little garden.  Many dies used; Paper Smooches, Foliage 1, ferns in white.  Frantic Stamper, Mix & Match Poppies, leaves in green.  The flowers are by Cheery Lynn, Gardenia strip small (my Mom's favorite!).  Sentiment by MFT, Sweet Roses, stamped in Melon Mambo ink on a hand cut banner flag.  Lots of adhesive pearls for accents.  As well as tulle added here and there.  The heart tag was created using texture paste and a Teresa Collin's stencil.  Die cut with a Spellbinders Standard Circle die, added eyelet and ribbon strips.  Then I 'painted' on a coat of Wink Of Stella Clear.

The 2 little scattered butterflies are by Memory Box, Butterfly Exhibit die, which I snipped apart from a die cut of 5 of them.

And I added a lone white fluffy feather to the left side....cuz let's face needed one!  lol
Quite FUN to make....and of course......FABULOUS!  Even if I do say so myself.....and I am!!!
