May is Mothers Day
My May calendar page is for Mother's Day, "I never knew how much love my heart could hold till someone called me Mommy". I have heard many people tell me they could never love a second child as much as they love their first, I'm here to tell you your heart just grows and grows and grows. After six children my heart is so full it could just bust!! I used three strands of embroidery floss for the green vine and the pink flowers and french knots. The brown and pink satin flowers are just circles cut from satin and you singe the edges. The top flower is paper, a yoyo and a button. In Microsoft Word I choose; Insert; Word Art, pick one of the fonts and type what you want it to say. You will get a new header that says Drawing Tools;Text Effects;Transform and then select how you want your text to look. I choose a rounded look and then printed it onto paper. I placed a template on top of the text, traced, cut out and inked the scalloped circle. BAM your done.
