Mother’s Day has been an emotional one for the last 27 years.  That’s when I lost my own mom.  My Mother-in-Law passed in 2014.  For the last 5 years, I’ve just not wanted to make Mother’s Day cards.

Then last year, it all changed.  Two of my daughter in laws gave us granddaughters, so now making Mother’s Day cards is back on the table. Literally.

I did struggle a bit with what to do, but I shouldn’t.  I took a look back (way back!) into my own portfolio and found one of the oldest cards I have ever made and it was a simplified version of today’s card.



Now it’s time to get busy making Father’s Day cards.  I need several of those!


I used:

Stamp Simply Clear Stamps – All Occasion Sentiment SET 2

Authentique – 6 x 6 – Springtime
Spectrum Noir Ultrasmooth Premium White Cardstock

Distress Ink Pad – Mermaid Lagoon
Divine Twine Baker’s Twine – Aqua/White

Simple Stories – I Am – enamel dots
Kaisercraft Mini blooms – sea breeze
Spellbinders Nestabilities – Classic circles

1/4″ ScorTape
Thermaweb 3D 1/4″ foam squares
cardstock scraps (teals)
copy paper



Thanks for stopping by!
