Happy Momma’s Day… and a fun giveaway…

Hello!

I am wishing you all the best day ever.  Being a mom can be so stinkin' tough (and glorious!), so you/we all deserve a huge pat on the back.

And, a big special blessing to all you fellow step-moms out there.  Yes, Disney gives us a bad rep. (All step mothers seem to be evil in their stories.)  But I am so proud to be K and A's step-mom and wouldn't want it any other way.  It is so hard to explain, but the love I have for them is more powerful and amazing to me than the love I have for my "own" child.  Why?  Because it isn't a bond that was formed at birth, but rather a bond that was formed purely of out love.  A love that wasn't "automatic" due having given birth a child, but rather "chosen."  God had a hand in it, for this I am sure.  Love them…

And a huge hug to my mom.  Clearly the best mom in the world.  Every single day I try to be as good of as a mother as her.  That is all I want to be.

And my mother-in-law.  Mother-in-laws get a bad reputaion, too.  But mine proves it wrong so very much. I adore her and am so thankful she raised such an amazing son.  Great admiration here.

OK… so… I said my thing for today. :)  Time for stamping…

I have been loving all the cards I have seen out in the blog world using My Favorite Things stamps.  I just had to get my hands on them!  I decided to use them for some Mom's Day cards.  This one is from Colin to my mom. The clouds?  I used a My Favorite Things die for that – so easy.  (Cuttlebug with the A, B and C plates.)  Colin, of course, added the "I love you" message…

  1. What a great article, I’m really glad I stumbled across it as I found it to be really informative. A good article on mothers day cards is not that easy to find but I’m amazed at how you touched on all the corners and how brief and to the point it was. I personally liked the cloud style card. I highly recommend checking out twent3 for mothers day card, as I’ve used them on several occasions and the cards they produce are really unique and also customized in 3d. So if you want to gift a birthday card to your friends, loved ones or even just for yourself, I can assure you these greeting cards will keep your long-lasting memories alive with the clever lenticular lens they use.
