Coloring Card Set and Crochet Basket for Mother’s Day Gift…

Look at this adorable little basket!  I wanted to give my mother in law a Coloring Card Kit for Mother’s Day so I stamped a bunch of cards and ordered the Zig Brushables Markers from Hobby Lobby.  I love these brush markers…BOTH ends are brush tips!  One end is one color and the other end is another color!  So in the pack of 12 you get 24 colors!  Pretty colors too!  Win!

Oops…took a few pictures before we took this over to her house but I didn’t realize I was focusing on the bow in all of them. lol  Oh well, I think you can see the markers ok.

The little tag is from Papertrey Ink and I tied on a roll of Doodlebug Washi tape.

Here’s the cards I stamped for the kit…two of each one. Penny Black, Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamp images.

I die cut the felt flowers with Memory Box dies out of Taylored Expressions Felt. I used dies from 3 flower sets, Plush Gardenia, Plush Ranunculus and Plus Moda Petals. They all have holes in the center so it was easy to put the centers through the layers.

One of our daughters crocheted the basket for me following this tutorial online HERE… so cute!

I hope you all had a lovely day/weekend! Thanks for clicking over to see what I’ve been up to!

    I should go to summer conference (graduate classes) the W, Th, and F through June 2, but I am not sure yet since I am unsure of Mom and Dad and if I need to be there ASAP or if it can wait until June 2. 🙂 I have no idea…as I told Tim yesterday.

  12. Hi Pam!
    I’m a little late in my comments but better late than never! 🙂
    I love the idea of stamping cards and letting your mil color them in! My mil and granddaughter like to color so I’m stealing this idea for them. Wonderful gift idea! And the basket is so cute! Your daughter did a great job! I think homemade gifts are much more personal. Let us know how she liked it!

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
