A Special Mom

 This is a special gift for my Mother in Law's Birthday.  I have been anxiously waiting to post this one for you. It had to make the trip from Wisconsin to Ohio.  Finally, we got the call today that Sandy had received her gift.  So... I am now sharing it with all of you.  My husband scripted this letter to his mother.  I am just so proud of him for putting down into words how much his mother means to him.  As a mother, you know that your child loves you.  However, it always means so much to hear them say it and their written word always means so much.
This picture shows a close up of the details that I put into the gift.  I took Eric's letter, printed it out and gave it a cardstock cocoa mat.  I used the Mayberry paperpack for this project.  It is one of my favorites!  I know that Sandy loves green.  Plus, I did a project for her at Christmas with the same paperpack.  So, I wanted to tie the two together.  You will notice that I used the Close to My Heart Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge to create a number of fun flowers and scallops for this artwork.  I used sparkles in multiple flowers to dress up the middle.  I used one pack of CTMH sparkle flourishes.  I just cut them in multiple places to make them flow as I wanted in my project.  I also added in a few Sparkle brads and butterflies to finish off the project.  I love the vintage feel with the modern twist.
