Happy Mother,s Day Projects

I decorated this candy dish for my Mom for Mother's Day. I filled it with her favorite candies and it was a huge hit. I got the dish at an auction and I colored the images with Twinkling H2Os on water color paper.
After cutting each image out with a craft knife (this took the longest time) I used Modge Podge to connect it to the dish.

I ran 1/4 inch ribbon through the holes of the dish to decorate and make that home-made appearance stronger. I put this Inkadinkado bird silhouette on two sides and the Me and Carrie Lou images on the other two sizes.
I was asked to make this next project using a shadow frame and this Lavender Flower Fairy Stamps Happen image. I colored the frame mats using a bayer with lavender lace and bashful blue SU ink.
I colored this image with Twinkling H2Os after embossing it with Gold Detail Powder on watercolor paper.
I am very pleased with both of these projects and hope the receivers enjoy them as much as I do. I hope each and every Mother had a fantastic day. One of my sons gave me the MM spinning carousel and the the other gave me beautiful panzies for one of my planters. I had a wonderful day and think Mother's Day should happen more often.
