Well, it was tough getting these cards done, but I finally finished. Probably a day or two later than I should have. : / But perhaps the recipients will see them on my blog! (silly) I did put them in the mail (I actually drove to the post office on thursday after work, unfortunately it wasn't early enough for everyone to get their card on time...SORRY!)
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
TO ALL THE GREAT MOTHER'S OUT THERE.
YOU INSPIRE AND MOTIVATE ME!
Thanks for ALWAYS having my back!
I LOVE YOU!!!
