Belated Mothers Day Celebration

Whoa! Life took me into quite a tailspin this past month!  Thankfully things have finally begun to settle down now so I can get back into some sort of normal routine.  We didn't have the chance to properly celebrate Mothers Day with family until just yesterday, had to really scramble to put a few things together.

Thank goodness for the Lori Whitlock Shop! I chose to use her Butterfly Shadowbox file to make super quick but beautiful shadowboxes as Mothers Day cards for our moms.

Here's the view from the top showing the three intricately designed layers inside the box which give this shadowbox impressive depth and dimension.

Baked up batches of pound cake for the special moms in our family and put them in gable boxes which I quickly put together using a file from SVG Cuts. Resized the box file to fit the mini loaves in Make the Cut  and kept the decorating to a minimum with a just few butterflies and pearls.

Here we are at our belated Mothers Day celebration. Heartfelt thanks to all these wonderful moms  in our lives who helped us get through all that life has thrown at us this year. We never could have survived without you. Love you all.

Beautiful card. Love the dimension. I am glad that you got to celebrate Mother's Day this weekend. Those pounds cakes look delicious and I love the box you made for them.
