Anyway, you may remember that the Basic Grey Stella Ruby birds gift card set I made a while ago was made with my mom in mind. She really likes all things vintage and I knew she'd love the look of this particular BG paper. (See that post here for details and close ups of each note card.)
I made a coordinating gift box to go with the note card set. It's topped off with a flower made the same way as the ones I did on the Wish layout.
I also stamped each note card envelope with a coordinating bird, but I didn't get a pic of those.
Of course, no Mother's Day present is complete without a card for mom. Again, vintage birdcages, sooo my mom. Gotta love Basic Grey!!
Including a coordinating envelope, too:
And, finally, here's the whole gift ensemble. I was in Michaels getting the ribbon for the gift box and happened upon the vase of hydrangeas and knew that it was sooo my mother's style.

Now off to work on my mother-in-law's card. She such a sweet woman who is so great with my kids. I've got to come up with something special!
