Mother's Day Gift

Hello!
I want to share with you a special gift I made for my Mom.
This was her Mother's Day gift.
Mom lives in an assisted living center,
outside her room there is a place where she can hang a picture,
a sign, a wreath, whatever she likes.
I wanted her to have something pretty showing everyone her family.
I started to create this many months ago, thinking I would make it for Christmas,
but life got crazy and it was put aside.
I finally finished it for Mother's Day
and I have to say, I love how it turned out and so did Mom.
It is now proudly displayed outside her door.
I got the raw wood frame from AC Moore
I used distress inks to color it.
I made these paper flowers with  files from
They are "Rolled Flowers 1,2 and 3"
The leaves are from "Flower and Leaf" cut file.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut them then rolled them by hand.
They were all adhered with hot glue
The veins on the leaves were added with a ball stylus.

Here is a close up of the background on the first "page"
If you click on the pictures you should be able to see the
design a bit better.
I used "Snow Background" (#27301) from Eureka! Stamps

For this page I used
"Heart Background" (#57901) from Eureka! Stamps

This adorable bunny is
"Daydreaming Bunny" (#15209)
he was stamped, colored and fussy cut.
The sentiment is
"Some Bunny" (#10603)
Both these stamps are from
QKR Stampede

For this Easter themed page I used
"Lg Chicks in Egg" (#3406) and 
"Bunny with Flowers" (#13407)
both from Eureka! Stamps

"Picking Dandelions" (#31702) and
"Field Grass Left (#38901) from Biblical Impressions

This border was made with
"Tulips" (#28502) from Eureka! Stamps 

"Lg Patriotic Star" (#11603) from Eureka! Stamps
was used to create this background

"Sunflower Background" (#35808) from Biblical Impressions
and "Eureka Butterfly" (#9702) 
were used to make this summery page

"Shamrock Border" (#40502) from Eureka! Stamps was embossed on this page

Here is a closer look.

"Witch" (#3901) and
"Fall Frame" (#56801) from Eureka! Stamps
were used for this fun Halloween themed 'age

"Fall Frame" (#56801) from Eureka! Stamps was used again
for this page.
For this page I stamped it once and colored it,
 above I stamped it twice onto orange paper
I used Pan Pastels and a Tim Holtz Ivy Stencil
to create this background.

For this fun Christmas background I used
"Christmas Balloon" (#16402)
"Reindeer Balloon" (#2602)
"Snowman Balloon" (#11805) and 
"Elf Balloon Holder" (#6509)
all from Eureka! Stamps
