If mom’s happy, so are we!

Did you wish your mom a happy Mother’s Day? Fortunately, moms come in all forms … caretakers, friends, family … so, I ask again, did you wish your mom a happy Mother’s Day?

I certainly had a great day (weekend). I was spoiled with “free time” to do what I wanted/needed to do. It was a nice, sunny day and so I was able to focus on my green thumb and weed my garden beds.

I was also able to work on a few cards for the special mom figures in my life, too!

I think gardening runs in the family and so, for my own mother, I created this cute little garden-themed card. I just love these paper colors and stamp set.

I was able to spend Saturday with my mom and mother-in-law at a local greenhouse. This was just the thing to brighten our day as it has been raining non-stop for about two weeks.

Since my family is close by we were able to enjoy the whole weekend with our moms. The card on the left is what I made for my mom-in-law and the one on the right was given to my husband’s grandmother. She really likes the color pink!

I love the definition of mother in this stamp set. Stampin’ Up! always has some really cute greetings in their stamp sets.

The last three cards are made from a retired stamp set, so don’t worry about your sets going out of style! Check out the current retired list before it goes away for good!

My son (and husband) joined in the card making fun as I was presented this card over pancakes this morning at breakfast. I especially loved the tractor. 😉

I also received a few cards from others … hand-made and hand-picked!

Hopefully you had a wonderful Mother’s Day, too (if you are a mom of little kids, big kids and pets) or wished your mom a great day!

Here’s some of the products used to make the cards above!
