I will confess, Mother's Day is a little rough for me. It's always been that way a bit because I have great sons, who I know love me dearly, but they are terrible about remembering me on my birthday or Mother's Day. Every year I set myself up to think it will be different this year and they will show their adoration appropriately....but I shouldn't do that because it'll only lead me to a little sorry for myself party by the end of the day. Since my own mother died, it's been even harder, because I would like to get the opportunity to talk with her again and tell her I love her.
This year, and previously, I have tried to counteract Mother's Day blahs, by make a few cards to give to my Daughters in law. It helps me feel like I am participating with the holiday in some small way. This year, I decided to make a card to tell them I appreciate them for the beautiful grandchildren they have given me.
I am using some new designer series paper not yet available, but soon will be June 1st. Additionally I have used some new layering dies also available June 1st. What IS available I will list at the bottom of my post.
I thought the butterflies were cheerful and reminded me of springtime. I hope you like it as well!
