Button, Brad, Balloons and Presents!

Good morning! Happy Mother's Day to all the ladies (and some men) who hold it down in their families. Sometimes there can be a mom and dad, and the mom is STILL the mom and dad (in a manner of speaking). But truly I just wanted to acknowledge and express appreciation to all those moms. What would this world be without us! Chuckle!

Here is a Mother's Day poem just for all of you!

She is the guardian angel of the family, the queen,
the tender hand of love.
A mother is the best friend anyone ever has.
A mother is love.


These cards were made from that SAME inspiration photo as the balloon cards, the brad and button cards. I forgot I had made them, and they were not photographed. I still have a couple more sets of cards that were made using that one inspiration photo that will be posted eventually...

Thanks for visiting! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to stop by.


  1. Hi Rae,

    You know I love to visit you because you offer that little extra by way of a lovely quote - I call that food for the soul!

    I simply LOVE this card... the colour combo is awesome and the gifts looks so sweet.

  2. Rae- I love those presents. What a cute card!

  3. Hi Rae, you must be the most wonderful person in the world to say I don't look more than 30, I was actually 51 last birthday, so I could hug you:)))
    I was in my 20's when my mum died of leukaemia but my sister was only 10 so it was very hard for her, but I am so proud of her now because she is a molecular scientist in Perth, devoting most of her life to cancer research..And Colin lost his mum and dad a year apart but we did spend lots of time with them over the last couple of years so that was really good.
    I'm so glad you had a lovely Mom's Day you deserve to be pampered from your wonderful son!
    So who is your super hero??? Just maybe I will whip up a card just for you..
    Anyway love the cards you have here, very pretty and love the colours!!
    Better get to bed, gotta get up at 4am (yuk)
    Have a wonderful week and catch you at the end of it:)
