I received the most lovely pair of diamond hoop earrings from one of my daughters for Mother's Day, because I had so been admiring these same earrings on her ears every time she wore them for the past three months. She said I made it easy for her to decide what to give me for my special day. In addition, she left this lovely gift here in California while visiting her Grandma, because she knew I would be coming to California to celebrate my Mom on Mother's Day, and I would be away from home. I wanted to thank her by sending her a handmade thank you card for all her many kindness she has given me this Mother's Day as well as for a good many years in the past!
I completed my first masked watercolor, bokeh background card at a stamping event given by my Stampin' Up upline, Liz Thayer back in February. I absolutely loved the bokeh effect with the rich shades of watercoloring, and stamping with as well. I knew I would be saving it for a very special person, and it was perfect in every way to add a little thanks inside to finish it off just for my daughter. Take a peek below at my finished card inside and out:
