It is Mother's Day weekend...yes, Mother's Day should be ALL weekend not just one day! One day just is not enough with all we do throughout the year.
How about a little history about this important holiday...
Mother’s Day is a holiday honoring motherhood that is observed in different forms throughout the world. The American incarnation of Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914. Jarvis would later denounce the holiday’s commercialization and spent the latter part of her life trying to remove it from the calendar. While dates and celebrations vary, Mother’s Day most commonly falls on the second Sunday in May.
Here are my Mother's Day cards I have made for a few special friends...
|Heritage Cricut cartridge for title and Creative Cards for butterflies|
|Birthday Cakes Cricut cartridge|
|Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge only|
|Freshly Picked Cricut cartridge|
|Florals Embellished Cricut cartridge|
I used my new Scrapbook Expo paper (only $2 per 6x6 stack) on all the cards. I sure do love to buy paper even though I know I do not need it. I seem to never finish a stack, but you can never have enough, right? I also added ribbon, buttons, my handmade stickpin, gems/pearls, flowers...lots of different embellishments to make each one slightly different.
The last two are personalized and I used Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge to cut the letters. I cut on the shadow feature at 1/2". One of my favorite carts still for simple fonts. Cuts nicely too!
Hope you enjoy the weekend. My hubby already asked my this morning what I want to do this weekend (yes, we celebrate all weekend...milk it while you can!). The only thing I said so far...go blueberry picking. Better go get ready!
