A very Happy Mother's Day to everyone, and a very Happy Birthday to my beautiful mother, who I one day hope to be, just a fraction of the amazing woman she is ( I love you mom!)
In honor of Mother's Day, here's a little poem that was sent to me by a friend:
A mother’s love is something that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it or take that love away…
It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking.
And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking…
It believes beyond believing when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems…
It is far beyond defining. It defies all explanation, and it still remains a secret
Like the mysteries of Creation… a many splendor ed miracle
Man cannot understand and another wondrous evidence of God’s tender guiding hand.
And now for the cards...
Here's the Mother's day card I made for my mother with one of my favorite stamps. Take a close look at the dress...do you see it? This stamp is call "Pasta with Peas"...isn't too cute!
Here's the same stamp, but using a slightly different layout, that I made form my mother-in-law.
Here's my mother's birthday card. Lately, I've been into PTI's Text Style - I love stamping it in London Fog (my other fav right now), and using it for backgrounds.
And, yet another card for my mother-in-law's birthday...yes, this time of the year is busy...two moms' birthdays and plus Mother's Day.
Okay - it's time to spend my Mother's Day with my kiddies, and my mom.
Card Recipes to be added shortly (time to give my mom her presents).
