Mother's Day

This Sunday is Mother's Day...the day we all tell our mom's we love them and thank them for everything they have done for us...which we really should do each and every day of the year!!  We should thank them for soooo many things, including giving us life, a wonderful childhood, standing beside us when we made bad decisions, helping us when we wanted out of those bad situations,  showing us what a loving, caring family really is (and teaching us how to extend that love to our own children so they would grow up with the same sense of family!), making sure we went to Sunday School every Sunday, and even for fixing breakfast every Christmas morning! I know I don't thank my mom near enough for all she has done for me over the years!!  Love you Mom!
I have made a card for mom this year.  I used my copics to color 'Princess Party Tilda' from the 2012 Prince and Princesses collection.  Isn't she a cutie?  The card is a criss cross card like we did for the last round of the Magnollia Swap (see my prior post).  Those cards are fun to do!  The DP is Graphic45 from the Once Upon A Springtime Collection.  LOVE IT!!!  The solid papers are DCWV.  I used Memento ink to stamp Tilda, and the rest of the ink is TH Distress Ink 'peeled paint'.   The sentiment is from a CTMH set called 'Say It In Style' and I used gold stickles for the crown.  Ribbon and bead string is from my stash.  I hope you all (and especially my mom) like the card.  I was happy with the way it turned out and have been saving this G45 paper for just the right project, and my Mother's Day card was perfect for it! 
Now I just hope my mom doesn't look at my blog before I give her the card on Sunday!!!

Happy Mother's Day MOM!  And to all the Mom's who visit my blog, a Happy Mother's Day to you too!

found this poem on the internet...

"Happy Mothers Day"
"Happy Mother's Day" means more
Than have a happy day.
Within those words lie lots of things
We never get to say.
It means I love you first of all,
Then thanks for all you do.
It means you mean a lot to me,
And that I honor you.


Thanks for stopping by my blog and come back again soon!  Happy craftin!
