A mother is a special person.

It wasn’t until I had my own child that I truly realized how special a mother’s job is to the next generation. I always knew my own mom worked really hard each day, but it puts your own life in perspective.

I always try to make the day special for my mom, who is now a grandmother.

Here’s a picture of my awesome mom (and little man when he was younger).

She works hard as a farmer’s wife, gardens the most beautiful flowers I’ve seen, and is a retired school bus driver and caretaker.

I also have a really cool mother-in-law who will bend over backwards for her kids and grandkid. 🙂

Here’s a photo of my mom-in-law (also with little man).

She works hard as a nurse, farmer and housewife. She’s not afraid to get her hands dirty.

I am always trying to think of ideas for Mother’s Day cards during the month of April. After all, April showers bring May flowers … and mothers like flowers!

Here’s a cute and easy punch art card that brings out the spring tulips.

This was made with the builder bird punch (wing) and with an embossing folder.

I may use the pansy petal punch (which happens to be discounted on the weekly deals until Monday, April 20th 11:59 p.m. MT) and flower shop stamp set.

Of course, I won’t be posting my card design until the big day in order not to ruin the surprise (Hi Mom!).

No worries, for those of you still needing to order supplies before Mother’s Day, there is still time.
