A Mother's Love Blog Hop

Welcome to A Mother's Love Blog Hop hosted by Lynne and the place to begin your hopping. . . What a wonderful blessing of a "mother's love" as it is unconditional! Today we are expressing our love for our mothers and all female role models in our lives.

We have the very most phenomenal blog candy to one lucky winner to either keep or give as a gift. Lisa Woodward, who is not only an awesome crafter but also owns her own business: Simply Silverton, is offering a soap, lotion and baths gift set in the winners choice of fragrance!!! How great of a blog candy is that! Lisa's business is simplysilverton so please take a minute to stop by her site and see her wonderful projects.


 For my first project I make this lovely gift bag for a mother. It's just the perfect side for some delicious chocolate. Yum!
 I re-enforced the inside fold of the top with tape so it wouldn't rip.
 I used Velcro to close the top.
 I created the flower myself in Inscape and used Tatter Angels Glitter Mist on it.
 I made the tag with embossing/cut out for my Cuddlebug and the stamp is from the Mother's Day stamps from Shabby Chic Stamp Co.

My second project is a card I designed in Inkscape and cut out using my Sizzix eClip die cutting machine. I found a card similar to it on Piniterest and said to myself that I could design something similar and make it and I did.

I love the sentiment I used on the inside of the card. The stamps for the outside and inside are "Mother's Day" from Shabby Chic Stamp Co.. I love their Mother and Father's Day stamps.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and now continue on to Anita.
