Happy Mother's Day!

Today we honor mothers everywhere!  I'll be joining my folks at Red Lobster in Tucson to celebrate after we attend church.  This wonderful day started by Anna Jarvis in 1868 and was signed by proclamation  on May 9, 1914 by President Woodrow Wilson.  We have been celebrating the day ever since.  And this is the card I'll be giving my mom...

The technique is called Cut Borders in my Technique Junkies newsletter.  The flowers are from a The Angel Co. set called Blossoms & Blessings and the text is from Red Rubber Designs called Contemporary Greetings.

I embossed my card front with an embossing folder by CuttleBug.  And I used a scalloped oval punch and hearts from the Clear/Pearl Gem collection.  Ribbon was purchased at a craft store.  I did have a problem when stamping.  I had to re-ink my pad and it was so juicy that I have a couple smears.  I hope I hid them well....  So please give a hug to your mama.

My heart does break for our daughter-in-law as she is flying to her mother's.  Her mom passed away late Friday night from cancer. I would appreciate prayers for Amy and her family for comfort and strength as she and her brothers prepare the funeral.  So again I say PLEASE try to spend some time with your mother.

Lovely card Carol. I used that same sentiment on the inside of the card to MY mom lol. (We do shop at the same places, don't we.) I ache for your DIL. No time is good to lose your mother, but so close to Mother's Day? It will be a bittersweet holiday for her from now on.
