Happy Mother's Day!

I hope all you stamping mothers out there are relaxing today and enjoying yourselves.  
Are your kids behaving?  I hope so.  I'm pleased to say my canine kid is doing very well, today, thank you!  :)  
Just sharing photos of some cards I handmade to give to my mom for Mothers Day.  
The stamp is from Stampabilities.  Such a cute mouse & hummingbird don't you think?  
I stamped the image with Staz On ink onto watercolor paper, then used my pens and a water color brush to color them.  Colors shown are Cameo Coral (retired), Blushing Bride & Mellow Moss (retired).

I used SU! Tulips border embossing folder for a textured frame around the image.  
This is a great folder to add a nice touch directly on your cardstock base.  
It fits perfectly on the front of an A2 size card (4.25" x 5.5").

I made a matching box for the cards as well.  A set of six cards (2 of each color) with envelopes with little birds stamped on the outside were nestled inside a box that looked just like one of cards.  
Who says you ever get too old to make your mom something for Mothers Day?  Not me!

So pleased my mother liked these cards.  Enjoy your day! 
Love you, Mom!
