My mail carrier probably wonders why I send so many cards near Mother's Day. Surely I don't know that many people having birthdays and since they're all addressed to women, they must be Mother's Day cards. She might think that I was literally raised by a village of special mothers. The truth is . . . I send a lot of cards. Some of the cards that I send are to friends of my mother's (some were even friends with my grandmother), and some of the women that are on my mailing list I have known for as long as I can remember. It's great to hear that the cards are so well-received. I think people don't send cards as often as they used to, but the joy of getting a greeting card in the mail cannot be duplicated with an email or a verbal claim after a holiday or occasion such as, "I thought of you on _____________ (your birthday or other occasion)!" Following are some of the Mother's Day cards that I made. I loved these cards! They were actually fun to make, and Stampin' Up!'s Stamparatus tool made the stamping a very, very quick process. The Petal Garden designer paper was a perfect feminine choice, don't you think?
For my mother, I made an easel card (literally, with strips of cardstock), and the focal point was a cut from one of the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum papers (a new product available next month) that I colored with Stampin' Blends.
I wish all mothers a very happy and blessed Mother's Day!
