NSD RAK!

NSD RAK............lots of initials there and just in case you are not a scrapbooker or crafter it means National Scrapbook Day (tomorrow May 2nd) and Random Act of Kindness also known as a giveaway or Blog candy. We do not have a local scrapbook store so there is nuthing going on in Stevens Point but there are quite a few virtual online crops that I might partake in tomorrow.

So in honor of this I am giving away a dozen packages of embellishments (a mix of flowers and raindots etc). Adding these to your cards or pages can turn them from ordinary into amazing.

I like that the Heidi Grace flowers come with matching brads too! Oh there are 2 packages of the metal shapes & words also. So to win just leave a comment and tell me about your best mothers day gift that you either got or have given to your own mom! I used to love when my sons were small and made me precious cards with their crayons and picked me dandelions off our lawn. Now they are all in their 20's and I'm lucky if they take the time to pick up the phone just to call. So share your good memories and I will draw on Sunday night so you will have them before Mother's Day in case you need them to make that special card!

Hi Louise! My best Mother's Day gift was a dandelion necklace made by my daughter. She was about 6 years old. She is now 15 so, I don't get those anymore :-(. Boy did I sneeze for a few hours!

Thanks,

Tonya

What a generous RAK. Last year was my first Mother's Day as a mom, so it's my favorite so far.

Carol N said...

What a great give-away. I love flowers and raindots. You really know how to do a neat RAK.

Tobey said...

OH, what pretty flowers and raindots, I love the colors!!! Happy NSD!!!!!

Donna said...

Hi Louise, your RAK looks awesome. I have recieved many sweet gifts for Mother's Day from my kids, but the one that always comes to mind first is when the kids got older, they went together and bought me a set of colbolt glasses, because they knew I loved the color!!! So sweet of em!!

Kathy said...

Great RAK11 Thanks for offering. I'm not a mom but I do get my share of dandelion and weed bouquets in the spring:) First ones up in the school yard to be sure.

sandyh50 said...

Great giveaway Louise! I love both flowers and raindots!

Lesa said...

Well, we don't have children and my mother has been gone a few years so I'll share what I sent my MIL last year. She was complaining that she didn't have a recent picture of her son & I--just from out wedding 19 years ago, LOL!
I made her a sort of embellished photo cube from a chipboard box. Three sides had a recent picture of her son and the fourth was one of us together. Embellished with butterflies, flowers, and a big chipboard monogram.
Generous RAK, Louise. Thanks for the chance, Lesa #5200

marla said...

Louise you are such a sweetheart always giving away. I think the most favorite mothers day gift I ever gave my mother was when my daughter was very young we went and had professional photos taken together with my sister. So we gave my mother photos of ALL her girls as a gift. We really NEED to do this again soon!!

Scrappy Rat said...

Hmm...I'm not a mom so I don't think I've ever received a gift for mothers' day. Ungrateful little dogs I have, huh? ;)

Barb - Fiskateer #2975 said...

Hi Louise - This year for Mother's day, I'm asking for my boys to come and scrapbook/make cards with me. I'm sure it will be one of the most memorable days! (and hopefully helps remind them that the time they spend is more valuable than any gift they spend $ on!)

Christy said...

My mom loved yellow roses, so that was one of her favortes to receive. Thanks for the contest!

Tona said...

I think this Mothers Day will be my best gift ever. My son & daughter-in -law will be here, (from 2 states away), so this will be the 1st Mothers Day that we will be together in 9 years. I'm really looking forward to spending some time with my son, (& daughter-in-law).

Maxine Hodges said...

Hi Louise,
My nicest Mother's Day gift was a clothespin that had a little girl picture on it ( from a magazine). I still have it clipped to my kitchen curtains.

My very first Mother's Day was when Caleb was ten months old. He had started walking a few weeks earlier and on Mother's Day, he RAN to me and gave me a hug.
And then later in the day he started saying "NO!" which was his first word so it was really special.. even though he was being defiant, LOL :)

Renee said...

My favorite gift for my mom was an album I made for her after her 65th birthday...took me a while, but she loved it.

java diva said...

Hey, Louise! I will miss you tomorrow!
The best Mother's day gift I got was the birth of my son 2 days before my first Mom day ever!

Karee Sue said...

What a great RAK, thanks for the change.
My mom just loves her garden, so for a few Mother's days we (my sisters and I) got her some cute garden statues. She loves those things and I don't think we could give her a better gift.

Mary said...

The mother's day gift was when my daughter was about 5 and she proudly gave me "presents" toys that she had wrapped from her toy box! it was the sweetest thing.

paper bag create said...

Yummalicious blog candy! The best Mother's day gift was to celebrate with my Mom and Grandma together...we went out for lunch and than came home for dessert. Really difficult to get together as we're spread across the country.
Cheers.

valken said...

My best memory was when all 3 of my kids were home with their families on Mother's Day. Usually they visit in the summer time so it was a special day and then they had a picture taken together and gave it to me next time they visited.

Happy NSD to you. Love the raindots. TSF Chris 5011

Vicki in MD said...

Thanks for the chance to win and the time to think back - one of the most memorable one was a wall hanging that said how special mothers are from my son in high after a particularly hard time.

Betsy said...

Happy NSD I'm getting ready to leave for the crop I"LL MISS YOU!!!!!

Ziggyeor said...

I made my Mother and Altered Board Book filled with photos of me and her as I was growing up. I had given it to her at the restaurant and she was trying so hard not to sob.

Love those Flowers thank you for doing an RAK!

Mardi said...

You can never have enough raindots. TFS!!!

NanaBeth said...

Louise-it's flowers and lots of them. I'm swooning already!

NanaBeth said...

So excited about the flowers I forgot-my favorite was a little wooden outhouse my husband gave me the first year I was a mother. When you opened the door he had a put a little note inside that said "Happy Mother's Day from your little s--t".
I still have it.

TracyP said...

Thanks for the opportunity for an AWESOME rak!! The best Mothers Day gift I get every year is a sleep in and breakfast in bed!! That is what I like rather than gifts, as well as hugs and kisses from my kiddies!

rayasunshine said...

Wow, what an awesome RAK!! I would love to win this!!!

sPaRkLiNg sCrApBoOkS said...

Hi Louise! How sweet of you to do a RAK! My best Mother's Day gift was my son- he wasn't born on Mother's Day, but I had 3 miscarriages before him and I wasn't sure if I'd ever BE a mom! So Mother's Day 1998 was a very happy day for me!
Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my blog btw!! Have a Happy NSD! xOxO deb

Lorraine said...

Louise....my best Mother's Day gift was last year when DH bought a big bouquet of yellow mums (and scrapping goodies). I kept it all year and it's going to bloom again for Mother's Day this year, hopefully.

Brenda - "Wild About Scrappin" said...

Wow, Louise that's an awesome selection. Thanks for a chance, and happy NSD.

AmyB said...

My child is a canine, so he needs a little help making his Mother's Day cards. One year my husband made a special card, with the dog's picture on it, and his pawprints!

patty w said...

One of my best was the year I had my first baby, my daughter Chloe. I had her the week before Mothers Day, brought her home the day before MD and my sister brought me over a card and little plaque for my 1st Mothers day..it was so sweet and I couldn't believe I was a Mother!

And today is that babys 13th Birthday! Can't believe it!

Great RAK Louise! Happy National Scrapbook Day!
My most fav mothers day gift was, a handmade card from my daughter when she was three. Apparently she took about an hour to make it and even attempted all the writing!!

katherine said...

Oh those lovely cards the children give me each year along with DH

Mandiannie said...

i love coming up with unique cards to give to mom on Mother's day. One year I made a shadowbox with a poem in it and it's wonderful to go visit her and see it hanging in her bedroom.

doverdi said...

My best Mother's Day gift would have to be the year DS made me breakfast in bed. He was about 7 or 8, he decided to make me cereal & toast. Of course he pour the milk over the cereal first & let it sit while he made the toast. Needless to say the cereal was disgustingly soggy but since it was made with love, I ate it. lol Thanks for the chance to win.

Jacquie Hart said...

My best Mothers Day gift was breakfast in bed totally made by the kids with some supervison from dad.

aloha, Louise. my best mom's day present was a bracelet made by my 9 year old SON. he picked out each and every stone for my bracelet. he made me cry!

nancy said...

I'm hoping this will be my best Mother's Day gift. I made my mom a table runner. She is always sewing for others and I thought she might like something someone else made. Thanks for being so generous.

BishopsMommie said...
