Happy Mother's Day to You

Hello Crafty Friends,

I sure hope you are enjoying your day. Mine has been peaceful since I am allowed only to do mimimal work. My hubby took me to the craft stores this morning since my son gave me a Joanns gift card, which was completely unexpected. I was extremely surprised and that doesn't happen often.  I wanted to purchase a new Spellbinder since I have seen so many projects using them (and I have become fascinated with them too!). The store we went to didn't have the one I wanted, so I will check another location tomorrow. We were going to go to the Olive Garden for lunch, but I said I wanted to wait until tomorrow since my son had to work today.  Instead of one day...I will get two days of spoiled motherly fun. : )

Since my Mom past away 1 1/2 year ago (many of my close crafty friends may remember it was very unexpected ~ she was only 54), I wasn't able to make her a card. My grandmother whom I was very close with past away just over 10 years ago; therefore, I bring live flowers to her grave.

I have definitely enjoyed making Mother's Day cards for others though.

Here is a card I made for the school's secretary's sister. She requested flowers and the sentiment.

Enjoy the time you have with your family.
