Mother's Day Cards to share...

Hi All,

I wanted to share with you the Mother's Day cards that my children made for me. It didn't matter that they gave me a new clock and a water fountain for my kitchen - the cards said it all.

First up is the card my oldest son made. Actually, I think he might've finished something his sister already had started. Although Hollyanne gave him full credit!

I'm so proud that he chose to use one of the new Wild Sprouts stamps from TGF.

The card to the right is the one that my daughter made. She used the beautiful digi image that Toni had offered for free when she introduced
the Cherry Blossom image along with a sketch challenge. She colored the image with Stampin' Write markers, used Papertrey Ink stamp for the sentiment and added a bit of interest with a Lizzie Ann border stamp and then a small touch of bling. She did a great job!!

And then last, but not least was my love letter from my youngest son.

He made this at school and it's his very own design. He made the envelope, the card and all his words are his very own. He signed it "Love Sincerely, Levi"

I feel very loved by my children and I thank God everyday for them - even if they're bickering over which movie to watch, or squealing and running through the house when what you really want is peace and quiet. I wouldn't trade these noises, arguments or whatever for all the peace and quiet, stamps and markers for the world.

I learned today that Kayleigh Anne Freeman is now playing amongst the clouds and dancing with Jesus. My heart goes out to these parents who finally got to hold their precious baby girl in their arms with nothing attached to her as her sweet little spirit floated to heaven. What a beautiful gift for them to have had her for these past 11 months, how that precious little girl has touched so many lives and made such a huge impact for being so small. Please visit their blog.

In Memory of Kayleigh Anne Freeman 6/23/08 - 5/11/09

You have to love the homemade cards, My kids surprised me too with some lovely ones, I love the way my 6 year old spells. I feel so bad for those parents who lost their baby on mother's day, I hope their pain is eased by the support of thoughtful folks like you.
