Happy to Be a Mother

Although - as I write this little feet (that should be in bed) keep running up and down the hallway!

I had a wonderful Mother's Day. I made some yummy french toast to compliment the beautiful brunch that Brian prepared. Lots and lots of lovely fresh fruit, strawberries and whipped cream for the french toast and Brian's specialty - hash brown casserole.

The kids gave me some really sweet gifts too. Michaela gave me a miniature tea cup and saucer that said "mom" on it. It was very special since I'd given it to my mom almost 30 years ago. Jacob twisted some very artistic and creative shapes for me with chenille stems and pom poms and Zachary drew me a very lovely picture of a great white shark. (?) I also got a creme brule chocolate bar, some craft keepers from Brian and a wonderful blender stick from my inlaws. Brian gave me the afternoon to play in my scrapbook room. My mom-in-law came back over and played all afternoon with me too.

Of course - the best part of Mother's Day is the hugs and kisses. Who could ask for anything more than that?

The card at the top of this post I made for my mom. It's My Mind's Eye double sided cardstock (from the Tres Jolie collection). The rub-on is Basic Grey, the flowers are Prima (Target issue) and the center stick on pearls are K&Co. I used a Creative Memories oval cutter to make the hole and my mom-in-laws Bernina to stitch the front. All the little glitter (including on the stitching) is done with a gold Twinklette pen from Marvy.
