So I know mothers day was a little while ago- but I just got around to taking pics of the things I made her today..
She got this card and canvas with some chocolate, her very own atc (egyptian themed that I gained in a swap with Katxena) and a beaded ring made with tiny pink crystals and white pearls that I couldn't get a decent picture of!

The card is leopard print with all different things- a butterfly with little wire and beads antanae, some tulle and cute fabric and a button resting on handmade paper, an Australian one cent coin and a few other bits and pieces...
The canvas I painted in all different browns, reds, blacks, pinks, greys and got the funniest pic of my mum laughing hysterically to put on top of it all.. the letters strung along the wire with beading spell "SMILE" !!

She liked it all and I hope you guys do too!!

Oh, that is wonderful.
I am so glad your mum loved it, she would be crazy not to!

The tulle is my favourite, it looks like you put so much work into the whole card!

Thanks Queen of the Savages! The card was actually the easy part- the canvas was a bit harder though; I wanted to seal the picture, but my mod podge dried out and everything else I tried kept smearing the image Sad So I think she's still unsealed!

wow the card looks great and i love the canvas idea!

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.
