Mother's Day 2013: Part One

I love making Mother's Day gifts and cards!  Generally, it is the time of year I get all feminine and flowery.  While I did just that for my Mom and Mother-In-Law, I got a little fresh and funky for my daughter, Kass.  I am absolutely sure she does not follow Scissors, Spatulas and Sneakers, so today I am going to share what I made for her.  

I made this fun, colorful altered clipboard (and the card) for Kass in my Helmar Live Ustream Class this past Tuesday.   You can watch the video here....

A close up of my sweet grandsons, Chase and Seth:

Kass' card uses the same fabric & stitching technique as the clipboard.  I just love the fun texture added with the fabric ruffle.  

Clipboard Supplies:
DecoArt Paint
American Crafts Alphas
DMC Thread

Card Supplies:
Core'dinations Cardstock
JilliBean Soup Paper
Unity Stamp Co. 
Ranger Archival Ink
DMC Thread

I hope you are inspired to put a little fresh and funky into your Mother's Day creations!
