A Couple of Mother's Day Cards

I've been making a menu and trying to get the house ready for the 20+ family members who'll be coming to the house on Sunday for Mother's Day. Here's a couple of the cards I've made...

During my recent retreat to the Dells Vi was trying to show us how to sew on paper with her embroidery machine, so I decided to use my "attempt" at sewing on this card. Vi also used her Cricut and SCAL to cut the design in the paper...N-I-C-E, don't you think? The flower is absolutely gorgeous in person and was handmade by DeeAnn, lucky me for having her as a partner in STSB Round 8!

This is one of my favorite cards! I went out and bought the MS butterfly punch and am now asking myself why I waited so long to get it!

"I Love You" by Carl Sandburg

“I love you,”
said a great mother.
"I love you for what you are
knowing so well what you are.
And I love you more yet, child,
deeper yet than ever, child,
for what you are going to be,
knowing so well you are going far,
knowing your great works are ahead,
ahead and beyond,
yonder and far over yet."

I don't know why, but EVERY time I read this, I get chills and I've been reading it for years.

Wishing all of you a blessed day!

I looked at your cards and hope my MIL doesn't see them or she will realize that she got ripped off in the one I sent her. I also used the stitched card we did with Vi. But only thought to stamp it with gold and no other embellies. Really, I need your mojo.
