Mother's Day Cards

Hello, everyone! Can you believe it's May already? That means Mother's Day is next weekend...are you ready?

Here are the cards I made for my mom and MIL. My mojo was not cooperating, so I went with the same design for both. These cards fit two challenges: Flutterby #107 and this week's CARDS challenge--Mother's Day.

We are sending my MIL a HUGE bouquet of roses, and my siblings & I are all chipping in to buy my mom a computer... she's in her 70's and has never owned one. I plan on spending some time this summer giving her lessons on how to use it.


What are you doing for your mom this year?

Stamps: Signature Greetings (PTI)
Paper: Basic Black, Taken with Teal, Raspberry Fizz

Ink: Basic Black

Accessories: Martha Stewart butterfly punch

Wow, these cards are fabulous. They will love them. I found some really nice wall hangings for both my mom and my MIL and I'm making cards for both of them.

Lovin' these cards, particularly the teal one :)
We've already had our Mother's day this side of the pond, I treated my mum to a box of Hotel Chocolat chocolates and gave her strict orders not to share 'em!

love the butterflies and how they stand out on the card stock :) Unfortunately, this is the first year I won't be making a card for my mom...she passed away 4 days after Christmas. However, I will be helping my class make Mother's Day cards...I started bringing in my Cuttlebug and letting them emboss some paper. They love it!!!
