Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!! To all you Mom’s out there! 


I love Mother’s Day! I love the little things that my kids make me at school. Yesterday on the way home from school Lily asked me if she could clean out her backpack all by herself…I said,”Lily, you dump that thing yourself everyday…” she was quiet, then as we were getting out of the van she said, ” I have to be real careful mom, I don’t want to squish my backpack..” She is grinning from ear to ear. I had to tell her not to tell me cuz I think she was about to burst! I just love it! Then last night when she was getting ready for bed she comes creeping out of her bedroom with her hands behind her back and the biggest smile on her face….”Happy Mother’s Day Mom.” I sadly had to tell her that it isn’t till Sunday. She ran back to her room real quick without showing me her treasure, and pretended she never said it! Too Cute! I can’t wait to see what she made. She is my little one that dots her letters to make them fancy! I have high hopes for this crafty little girl!

My youngest son, Ben has been telling me “Happy Mother’s Day” for weeks now. The funny thing is that he says Mother’s Day is for his grandpa. Hum….I tried to explain that I was the Mother and he just smiles and says it’s Grandpa’s Mother’s Day. maybe next year, he is only 2.

My oldest treats me like every day is Mother’s Day. He is so sweet! Can’t wait to hear the children sing on Sunday at church. It is the BEST!

Well on to the Mother’s Day card…

We made these cards for my Stamp Club. They were fun to make! I love this punch. I was inspired by Nancy Riley’s purse card here…I just changed it a little.

Recipe: Stamps: All Holidays, Ink:Night of Navy, Paper: Night of Navy, Real Red, Very Vanilla, Cerise DS paper (retired) Extras: Tab Punch,mini square punch (mine is a creative memories punch)  Gold Brads, Gold wired (from Michaels)

Today was GREAT!! I love to hear them sing. Always brings a tear to my eye! Though it would have been better if I could have seen Lily! Her little friend Gracie was leaning over the edge of the stand singing away, and Lily was hidden behind her. Next time I will sit on the other side of the Chapel… Next year Ben gets to sing too!!

Lily’s present to me was a little picture frame that she made herself and  a picture she drew inside it.  She was so proud!! Then my husband got me something that he thought was funny…but I am sooo excited about! A Ped Egg! I have some smooth feet now!! Greatest gift ever! Love that guy. At least he was paying attention…some times we don’t need diamonds…just something practical that we won’t buy for ourself…even if it only costs $10.00! Ladies, if you don’t have one…get one!

Hope your day was great!!

    Pam, this card is so cute. I still haven’t tried the purses and I keep meaning to! I can just picture the events you described with your kids! Ben is getting so big. Lily is a doll and what can I say about Jake…He’s a charmer with the prettiest eyes ever! Missed seeing them sing. I remember Jake singing louder than all the kids when he was younger! Glad you had a nice day!

    Well, Gracie may have been leaning over in front of Lily but she certainly WASN’T singing! 🙂 The girl didn’t move her mouth once. geesh. Yep, I think everyone should head to the left of the chapel on Mothers Day 🙂 Glad you had a good one!
