Mothers Day Tag for 1st time mommy

Hello fellow crafters! Hope everyone is having a great day and is looking forward to the wonderful weekend ahead of us:)

One of my Bestie's is a 1st time mommy, yay! I wanted to make her something special to celebrate her 1st mothers day:) My boyfriend and I got her an edible arangemtent bouquet and I think this cute tag is just the perfect touch:)

The tag is pretty simple but I think its so cute:) I got a chance to create my tag with my scraps, so I was super excited about that. Yay!

I used alot of My Creative Time products. I love her stamps and dies, they are truly the best!
Wish I had more time to make more of these tags to put on my moms and mother in-laws gifts. Maybe next year:)

The cute pink rose was made with some glitter scrap paper I had in my stash. I used the rolled flower dies and some glossy accents as glue, and in a matter of minutes I had this super cute rose:)

I also used the tic tac toe sketch from Crafts 4 Eternity I used the Ribbon, use some scraps, and Bling line. The cute little hearts were my bling:)

Mothers Day Flower Pot

Good morning fellow crafters! Hope everyone is having a great day:)
I have a cute Mothers Day gift to share with you all today. I made this cute flower pot for my mom last night. Thought it might be cute for her to put on her desk:)

I used a lollipop as the flower base. I tied some green curly ribbon to make the leaves of the flower. Then I went Peachy Keen Stamp Crazy:)lol.

To make the flower I used Peachy Keen's  May 2012 stamp of the month set. I used PK-145 Piles of 3/4" smiles stamp set for the adorable face on the flower and I colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers. The adorable bee is form Peachy Keen's  April 2013 stamp of the month set. Again I used my Spectrum Noir markers to color the bee in, and then went Stickles crazy, lol. For the mushrooms I used I used the May 2012 stamp of the month set, and the cute tiny butterflies came from the April 2013 stamp of the month set. (Sorry I didn't put a picture of this stamp set).

Here are some close ups
The cute sentiment and the die is from My Creative Time's "Mom you Rock" stamp set and the "Fancy Frame and Die Set." These dies are so great and super easy to use with the CuttleBug.

My Creative Time products used:)
