She is the one who is always there for you: to bandage your skinned knee, to pack your lunch for school, to hold you when you cry, to help you out with those major teenage problems, and to help you understand how to be a mother to your own children.
Moms are the best, and we take them for granted too often. Today, we are gearing up for a great Mother's Day by creating projects that highlight and honor our moms! Let's start the Mother's Day celebration early by leaving some love for your mother in the comments! Let us know what makes them so great, or one of your favorite memories of your mom.

"A mother is your first friend, your best friend, your forever friend."
”I created these two special cards with matching envelopes for Mother's Day featuring the beautiful Misty Rose collection. I cut a card (3 1/2 x 6) from white cardstock using the measurements on my We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board (this is the card size for my 8 x 8 envelope) and matted it with watercolor paper and a sheet from the A4 collection pack, you can use your own discretion when measuring, I normally leave a small border so that I can still see a bit of the card itself. Cut your envelope paper size from a 12x12 pattern sheet measuring 8 x 8 and then punch the envelope on a 3 1/8 scoreline using the envelope punch. I added colour to the background of my cards with some of Finnabair's Impasto paints and paper texture paste, apply this randomly with a silicone brush. I coloured the chipboard pieces with metallique paints. I then adorned my card with some die-cut pieces, decorative tape, string, gorgeous Prima flowers, say it in crystals and sequins." - Tanya
