Happy Mother's Day!

Evening hens!  Just wanted to pop in and show you these three Mother's Day cards I made, and of course to wish all mothers a wonderful day on Sunday! Isn't being a mom one of God's GREATEST gifts?  

I saw this card by Kelly Alvarez on the Simon Says Stamp You Tube channel and fell in love with it, and therefore ordered every stamp and die to make them for Mother's Day this year.  I just love how they turned out.  Each jar is a shaker box with sequins inside and a jar shaped card with a printed Mother's Day greeting is attached to the back.  It's not visible from the photo but if you watch the YouTube video HERE you'll see how Kelly made it.  I also used my 1-2-3 punch board to make the envelope boxes for each.  While these cards do fit into an A2 envelope, I felt it was a bit big as well as lumpy looking, so I decided to make an envelope boxes for each from old scrapbook paper.  Take care, and stop back by next week for a special post from the hen house, ok?  {{{hen hugs}}}
