Something new......

Okay, it has been way too long since I posted something new. Honestly, I haven't done much lately. My creativity has disappeared to somewhere unknown and I am hoping it comes back soon! But before it left, I made this for my Mom. Her birthday is this month and I thought it would be nice to make her something that showed how I felt about her. She is one truly magnificent woman that has been through a great deal and took on three children to raise that was not so easy at times. She is my hero, my role model, and I love her more than words could say!

I bought the letter M at Hobby Lobby (have I ever mentioned how much I love that store?) and painted it a olive green. I used some DSP that has been retired for a while but I still love it and am just about out of it. The word "cherish" is stamped but the other sentiment I printed on my computer. I sponged the edges in chocolate chip and finished it off with the wide chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon . It was quite easy and turned out very elegant. I wish I would have thought of it at Mother's Day but that's okay. I know she will love it!
