Designed to work with your Ultimate Crafter’s Companion Tool, but can also be used as a stand-alone product.

Ultimate Advanced Techniques DVDThis inspirational DVD is crammed full of crafty tutorials for advanced construction techniques using the Envelobox Creator and Boxer boards in conjunction with the Ultimate Crafter’s Companion tool. The DVD features 12 step-by-step projects including stepper cards, tea light holder card, accordion file box, swing cards, treasure chest, hinged box, set of drawers and more. 2 ½ Hours of instruction and projects!

You won't see my card on the CCCB site :( Apparently there were some technical difficulties and my card was not posted, but that's ok :) Our DT coordinator went out of town, so I'll forgive her ;)

For my card, I used the Sheena Douglass As Scene On Screen - Wouldn't It Be Lovely 1 stamp set for this. I just loved that cheerful bunch of flowers sitting in the wagon. As my mother is an avid gardener, this image is perfect for her. I colored it with my run-of-the-mill colored pencils (I dream of Copics!). I thought that Webster's Pages Spring Market paper was a lovely fit, complete with these FloraDoodles red flowers.

Isn't that image to die for? It is so detailed and it was a joy to color.

The sentiment (wish I had manufacturer info, but alas, I do not. I've had it for about 13 years now!) is stamped and the heart is red glitter, accented with some green bling :) What mom doesn't love sparkle?
So there you have it, grab your Crafter's Companion stamp, or head over to their online store to buy one, and show us your Mother's Day project!
