Mother's Day

I get to make/send three Mother's day cards....I made the all different - as different as the Mom's!
This pink/blue purse is made from a tag punch, folded down to make the flap. An idea my Mom sent me a month-or-two ago and I decided to use it on her card. :)
I decided to showcase the die-cut letters on this card for my mother-in-law, and made the flower a theme, as she loves to garden. Her favorite color is blue.....
The last one is made with paper my step mother-in-law gave me for Easter. Love the earthy, rich colors and wanted to use them with this trendy bird stamp for her card.
I hope they all 3 enjoy them & feel special!

Wrap Pants

So I saw these pants and thought I would like to try them. They are comfortable, adjustable to the waist and big at the bottom, which I liked.

They look so cool and trendy on her.

Well, I got out a sheet that I had in a box and tried them. This was the original, made to her instructions, except that I used buttons because I found that they were so big around the waist.

You can see that my pair is not near as cool and trendy - and look terrible on me! So I cut the front of the pants off to make them a little less huge and put a string on them instead, thinking this would make the legs less humongous. I don't think I'll be wearing these babies anywhere except to bed! They are quite comfortable, as promised, but my, they don't look good!
