This is a two-day blog hop. So, please be sure to stop by both days to see all the amazing projects.

Now on to my project: 

I made this wall decor for my Mom for Mothers Day. I started with a frame that had three 4X6 openings. I removed the glass from the frame before beginning my project.

I cut three pieces of patterned paper from the Periphery collection by Basic Grey for the openings. On the first I printed the word Nest with the Edwardian Script font.

On the second opening I glued a nest and some speckled eggs which I had purchased at Jo Ann's.

For the third opening I printed a vintage bird Image which I downloaded from the Graphics Fairy, fussy cut and attached with Pop Dots.

I hope she likes it!!!

Supplies used: frame - Walmart; patterned paper from Periphery by Basic Grey; font - Edwardian Script; nest and eggs - JoAnn's; bird image - Graphic Fairy.

I'd also Like to share the card I made for her. The silhouette is from Silhouette Studio and cut on my Cameo.

Supplies used: cardstock - light grey, black; patterned papers from Emma's Shoppe and protrait collections by Crate Paper; silhouette cut with Silhouette Studio cut file; ribbon - Michaels; Lace - Walmart; rhinestones - Kaiser Craft; alphabet stickers - Making Memories; antique button - my sister; twine - my stash; sewing machine.

I have some blog candy:

Thank You from the bottom of my heart !!! I LOVE your beautiful, thoughtful, loving creation. I already have picked the place I will place it. I love all the embellishments - the colors, the nest with eggs, the mother bird and her babies and all that those beautifully chosen details say about being a Mom. The card is lovely-soft, romantic and a work of art in and of itself. THANK YOU WITH MUCH LOVE !!
