Mothers Day header 2

With Mother’s Day just a few days away, I didn’t think I’d have a need to make any Mother’s Day cards.  My own mom passed in 1992 and my sweet mother-in-law passed in 2014.  But, my hubby, sold one of his co-workers on giving handmade cards this year.  So I have TWO for you today!

I’m really not expecting much from my own sons.  You know the old saying that you teach people how to treat you.  Well, I’ve never made anything special of Mother’s Day and now I’m sorry I did.  Three of the four are married.  No blood related grandkids yet, but we do have a 3 yr old step-grandchild.  I am training my son to make it a priority so that Delilah knows what to expect when she grows up and has kids of her own.

Mothers Day L 2

First up is a pocket card.  I fell in love with the new Flourished Frame Pocket dies.  I see a great deal of potential with them!

The sentiment card pulls out for a nice interactive feature

Now, the inside sentiment was one I found online.  I thought it was perfect!

My second card is much simpler and not as frilly.  I always ask the questions (favorite color, frilly or not, religious or not)

Mothers Day 2 R1

Now, by some twist of fate, I had NO white 1/2 pearls.  I wanted to use them.  I substituted white brads, but if you’re going to make this card… use the pearls!
