Mom's Day

Mother's Day is just around the corner.  Unfortunately both my mom and mother in law live over 600 miles away so we won't be seeing them on Mother's Day.  I had to send out both of their cards early in hopes they will get them by Friday.   Below is the card I made for my mom.

My inspiration came from Dawn Griffith.  She made a card very similar to this, and I loved her color combo.  I didn't have the same stamp set she used and I don't have any Sahara Sand re-inker, so I improvised and came up with my own version.

The inside is stamped with the sentiments from Wonderful Mother (retiring).   The sentiment on the front is from a Verve set I won. :)   I loved this card so much that I made a second one for my friend.

Here is the inside of her card.  The clear stamps make it so easy to place your words together.   I changed "Mother" to "Friend" for her card.

Did you know that you don't just have to send a card to your own mom?  You can send it to any special woman in your life who has mothered you or is a great mom to her own kids.  For that matter you can send it to a nurturing dad.  :)  Consider giving a card to someone who has lost their mother or child, especially those who have passed away in the past year.  It means a lot to know that somebody cares about their pain.

For many of us Mother's Day can be difficult.  Those who do not have a mother or child to spend this special day with are hit the hardest.  My heart goes out to you.  I pray you have some fond memories to hold you close.   I feel blessed that even though I won't be with my mom on Mother's Day I will be able to call her and tell her "I love you".

Creative Blessings,
