Handmade Mother’s Day Cards

As a new mom, I know how meaningful it can be to hear the genuine words, “You’re doing a good job”.  Those simple words can bring me to tears, given the day.  So, I wanted to let some of my favorite mamas know I think THEY are doing a great job.  I mentioned the other day that I was inspired to create handmade mother’s day cards because when Nancy and Laurel brought hand-crafted gifts for us to the blogger meetup, the feeling was conveyed that they cared enough and took the time to create something with their hands for us.  I so appreciated that and wanted to pass it on. image The cards aren’t fancy or elaborate, just simple little notes with a heartfelt message.  I made them with cardstock and embellished them with ribbon, Japanese tape, stickers, rhinestones, and hole punches.  I had fun personalizing each card for the specific recipient.  image image image image image image I hope y’all have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

    I knew you would find a great use for that Japanese tape! And you're so right about the power of the "you're doing a good job" phrase. Especially when you have a one year old. Especially when you have a 3 year old. I guess always… 🙂

    I hope you have a fabulous Mother's Day, too!

    The cards look fantastic, you did such a good job! Handmade cards are my favorite, J always makes cards for special occasions or just 'cause…they're not as pretty as yours, but they're the ones that bring a huge smile to my face.

    Just beautiful, and so thoughtful. It is always nice to receive a homemade card/gift, as it shows the love and care someone put into making your day special. I miss those finger painted cards from the girls preschool days!

    You did a great job on the cards Megan! So glad that you made them cards as I do feel that handmade gifts/cards are truly appreciated. I am working on my cards now and on decorations for our Mom's day gathering that I am hosting for the "moms" in my life. Will be sure to post photos on the blog! Hugs from Conroe, TX!
