Hey everyone! I truly wasn't going to do another post this week, but I just couldn't help myself....lol! My sweet friend, Dawn at Creative Cain Cabin, had this adorable Free Mother's Day Printable HERE. Well, I was planning to simply copy it and pop it in a frame, but then decided to make the print smaller, as in card-size, and whip up some special Mother's Day pretties for some special people. The Man & I no longer have our Moms with us, so I made these for some other dear ones. Here is what I came up with.
I made the card base out of red card stock, and the inside is a pretty golden yellow -- for the verse.
I added a Baker's twine bow and gave the cards dimension with some paper flowers & then some sparkle with glitzy faux diamond centers.
Now, I'm no poet and certainly do not claim to be one. When I make my cards, I try to just allow the words to flow that I feel fits the person or situation. That being said, and knowing that you are all very kind and would never judge my lack of poetic talent, here is the verse I wrote for the cards.
Happy Mother’s Day!
Mother’s Day is really every day,
But according to the calendar,
we only get a big “to-do” one day in May.
Every mom deserves some recognition
for the choices she has to make,
the boo boos she kisses,
the interest in Barbies or light sabers
that she sometimes has to fake.
A mother’s day begins with that first “Mom”
shouted from a crib or a teen’s unkempt room,
and doesn’t end until all are safely abed &
she can finally sweep away the last crumb
and put away the broom.
Mothers are not always the most popular,
with cries of “No!” or “That’s not fair!”.......
But still, mothers forge ahead,
greeting each day with never-ending love for
each of her children -- one, two or more than a pair,
Babes or adults, you are always their Mother.
Got these in the mail today to some sweet friends who just might need a little extra love this Mother's Day. I hope they will enjoy receiving them as much as I enjoyed making them. Thanks so much for stopping by, and please know you are always welcome anytime.
These are perfect! I'm hosting a new linky party at http://hickorytrailblog.blogspot.com/2013/05/efforts-and-assets-linky-party-1.htmlReplyDelete
I would love to have you!
That is so sweet of you, Angela, but I really don't care to link up this particular post. I have added your party to my list and will be linking up plenty of other posts down the road. Hope you understand.Delete
So pretty. Thanks for sharing. Happy Mother's Day.ReplyDelete
Hi Carol! Happy Mother's Day!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you for the comment you left in my "sad mother's day post" It meant a lot to me because the words come from a real and great mom.
I never knew that you can write a great poem. I love it. Aside from being a great wife, mom, grandma and blogger, you are a great writer / poet too :)
Hope you are having a great Mother's Day!
Oh my, Diane, you will make me cry with all of your sweet, sweet accolades. Thank you so much!Delete
I've been meaning to ask, do you realize you have "no reply" on your email? It means that no one can reply directly to your email message. It's an easy fix (if you want to change it) on your Blogger profile page. Most Bloggers don't even know it's set up that way.
