Mother's Day is just around the corner and I have some ideas for you to help with your handmade cards! Today I am sharing the card I made for my mom using one of my favorite sets of ALL Stampin' Up! time... Elements of Style (wood, clear).
This jewel of a set is on the Stampin' Up! retiring list so if it's not in your collection, you better act fast! It will not be available after June 3.
I believe I can honestly say that I have used this set more than any in my collection! ...even on masculine cards! Believe me...there's a way to use ANY set on a masculine card! (Try my Mainly Manly Card series to see how!)
Now, back to Mother's Day! Need some help with sweet wording for the inside of your hand-made creations? Here's a collection of a few quotes and thoughts for you to use or inspire you for your own sentiments:
Your arms were always open when I needed a hug. Your heart understood
when I needed a friend. Your gentle eyes were stern when I needed a
lesson. Your strength and love has guided me and gave me wings to fly.
- Sarah Malin
Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.
"All that I am or ever hope to be,
I owe to my angel Mother."
- Abraham Lincoln
When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.
- Sophia Loren, from Women and Beauty
Mothers are like glue. Even when you can't see them, they're still holding the family together.
- Susan Gale
"I may call her mom, but she's the best blessing God ever bestowed on me."
A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us;
when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine,
desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and
endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness,
and cause peace to return to our hearts.
- Washington Irving
