I found these little notebooks on clearance at Archivers. There is a notepad and a tiny pen inside with a space for a picture. They were plain with a metal tag on the front. I ripped off the tags and decorated them. One is for my mom and the other for my dad.

They both use Grundgeboard. The one with the lock is painted with Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber Pearl. The key is painted with copper Perfect Pearls. The letters are just some stickers I had laying around. My mom's is dabbed with various Alcohol Inks. The antenna are two curled paper clips. The letters are some Creative Memories ones I found in my massive scrapbooking stash. :)

Cards for my mom

Sorry it has been so long since I have posted anything. My mom has been in the hospital for a week. She was very, very sick but she seems to be coming around now. Hopefully she will get to go home sometime next week. Thank you so much to everyone that has sent her cards. She just loves them!

Here is a card that I made for her when I brought her flowers yesterday. I finally had a few minutes to break into my new stamps! I took a picture from the side so you can see the little bird and bird house are cut out seperatly and poped up.

CS: Chocolate Chip, Garden Green, White, Pacific Point
