Happy Mother's Day!

Tomorrow is Mother's Day!  What a special day to celebrate!  Already I have received a project that each of my kiddos made in school, a pipe cleaner & bead bracelet from my daughter, cards hand drawn from both and a bouquet of flowers!  They sure know how to make a mom feel special!

We celebrated Mother's Day with my mom a little early this year and so I already gave her the card I made.

AE Mom's Day 2014 Side

It doesn't actually say mom on the outside of it, but that's OK!  I started with patterned paper from Dear Lizzy's Day Dreamer set and die cut it with Lil' Inker's Stitched Mats Rectangles die.  The sentiment that is stamped is one of my favorites from Avery Elle.  It is from the Oh Happy Day set.  Since I die cut the word "love" (from Paper Smooches) I masked off the AE sentiment and only stamped the "you" from the set.  I just LOVE the scripty font in this stamp set!  The flowers I stamped are also included in that same set.

I die cut the "love" from black glitter paper and adhered it to two others that I also die cut from black cardstock.  I also added some white enamel dots.

She loved it and said it reminded her of her mom that passed away this year.  Kind of a bittersweet Mother's Day for her but we know that Grandma is celebrating in Heaven!

I am entering this in the Avery Elle AEI♥U Challenge which is to make a Mother's Day themed card.

Thank you for stopping by today!  If you are a mother or a mother at heart, I hope you have a wonderful day!
