Happy Birthday, Mom!

Oh my!  I can't believe it's been over a month since my last post....where does the time go???  It has been a super busy summer and there hasn't been much crafty time.  But, I did manage to make time this weekend to create because today is my mom's birthday....Happy Birthday, Mom!...and I had to make her a card.

The technique for this card can be found at Ellen Hutson, The Classroom.  I didn't have the Copic reinkers, so I used ink straight from the marker with the colorless blender.  It resulted in a paler effect, but I like it.

It was also time to create my Tim Holtz tag for August.  I did create a tag, and I loved it so much, that I used the same design for the cover of an envelope book I created for my mom which holds five different gift cards.  Tim, it's another beautiful design and I know my mom will love it!

The frame is a Memory Box die, the silhouette is a Dreamweaver stencil and the sentiment is from PaperTreyInk.  All other supplies & embellishments are Tim Holtz.


The idea for the book came from PaperTrey Ink's Stamp-a-faire Mini Book Challenge by Ashley Cannon Newell.  This is the second one I've made...super easy and lots of fun for the recipient!

Well, I'll try to make sure it doesn't take another month before my next post!  Enjoy these last couple weeks of summer!!
