Happy Mother's Day Weekend

I only had one grandmother growing up and she was amazing. She was a story-teller and wrote a book for her grandchildren when she was 74 years old-- because she knew how much we loved to hear her stories. I read it every year at this time. During one visit with her, she told me that "every day should be Mother's Day" and I never forgot it. We sat for hours that day and she told me the most awesome stories about my Mother growing up. From that day forward, I always quoted my grandmother in cards that I gave to my Mother.

Two years ago on Mother's Day, I knew it would be my Mother's last. We sat and read my grandmother's book together. We laughed as my Mother, in turn, told me her version of the many stories that are told in the book :)

I made this card to put on my Mother's table this year.

I used paper from the new DCWV Spring Fling/Summer Combo Stack and Old Paper Distressed Ink. The cherry is quilled and adds a bit of dimension to the card.

Thanks for looking.
Have a great Mother's Day weekend!

You are so right. The quilled cherry give this adorable card just the right touch. I did quilling on a few Valentines Day cards, the first time in a VERY long time and really enjoyed it.
