Happy Mommy Day

Do your kids call you Mom or Mother? Mine call me Mommy and I love it, that is what I called my Mommy. My Mommy went to be with Jesus 28 years ago next month, she was only 44 years old and died from cancer. Mother's Day always brings tears but I am more able to celebrate her life now than I used to be. I wasn't a christian when she died and I didn't realize that she was in a much better place. So, if your Mommy is here CELEBRATE with her and if she isn't CELEBRATE her life.

I made today's card from left-overs from my Technique class last weekend rather than put everything away. The Scallop oval is Rose Red but doesn't clash as much IRL as it does in the photo. The other colors are Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink. I also used a MS embossing border punch and MS pearls.

This is beyond gorgeous! I love it! The colors are beautiful together and I just love the way you laid out the card. That sentiment is one of my favorites. May I CASE for my mother? I knew I wanted to use that sentiment for sure, and this would make a perfect card for her. I even have that border punch! Soooooo pretty! Soooooo glad I saw it before mother's day.

I love having my mother nearby and I do celebrate our relationship. She is my best friend. I thank God daily for her. Thanks for the reminder to treasure the most important gifts God gives us!
