Mother's Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Mother's Day" Blog Hop!  

We're so happy you could join us today to honor Mothers, Daughters, Aunts or any other woman who has been a great influence in our lives!

 You should have arrived from Carolyn.  If you happened by my blog or are joining me from your dashboard, head over to Miranda's blog to start at the beginning.  
We don't want you to miss any of the fun! 

In addition to seeing a lot of awesome projects, there is some blog candy available too.  Miranda will be giving away a Michael’s or JoAnn's gift card (winner's choice).  To be eligible for the blog candy, you are required to visit each stop in the hop and leave a comment!  
The winner will be announced Wednesday, May 15th on Miranda's blog! 

I made three different cards for this hop and sent them along to various folks for Mother's Day.  The first went out to my mother-in-law in Edmond, Oklahoma, and uses a KennyK digital image and sentiment from Close To My Heart:
The second card--a clean and simple look--went out to my oldest son's stepmother:
I know that sounds a little weird, sending a card to your son's stepmother, but I just wanted to let her know how much I appreciate the things she does in his life.

The last card is for my own dear, sweet mother:
The inspiration for this one came from a card I found on Pinterest.  I modified mine just a little bit, since I used a smaller card, but I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.  I hope my mom likes it!

Next on the hop is Sarah Mae!!!

Should you get lost along the way, here is the entire line up:
