Happy Mother's Day to all the mommies that read my blog! I feel like everyday is mothers day around here because I was blessed to be given the chance to be a mother. Emilia will always be my best gift. It is pretty much just a normal day around here since my mom didn't want to do anything special, she will be by later to pick up her gift though. Rich surprised me with a PTI gift certificate and Emilia got me this bracelet that I am have been wanting for awhile now though. I am also very thankful to have a wonderful mother too. She is the reason I am the mother I am today. My sister and I gave her a gift certificate for a facial but I wanted to make her something special too. When I asked her what she would like she said she needed a new checkbook cover so that is what I made her.
I got the pattern from this blog. The material is Daisy Chain from Amy Butler. I made the flower by cutting out the scallop shapes with my Cricut and Cuttlebug dies using PTI Hawaiian Shores Felt. The rest was from Felt On The Fly. After I was done making the flower I attached it to the cover with Heat and Bond.
The inside looks like this.
I also saw this cute template last week and thought it would be perfect to package the checkbook cover in.
I made the base from Tempting Turquoise Cardstock that I ran though my Cuttlebug using a Sizzix Embossing folder. The Pattern paper was from Martha Stewart.
I included this tiny note card in the inside pocket too.
That's it for now. I hope the rest of your day will be a great one and I will be back soon with more things to share.
