Mother's Day is Everyday!

Today's featured stamp is Mother's Day C1577.  Why, do you ask that this stamp is the featured stamp for today.  I truly believe you should tell someone how you feel about them while they are living, cause they certainly can't hear you when they are gone to be with the Lord, therefore, I like to encourage all of you to send your Mom/Grandmother a card outside of Mother's Day to tell them how much you really appreciate them.  They will not be expecting it like they did on Mother's Day and you will make their day for weeks to come.

Joy McHargue created this stamp using Z1820 For Always Textiles; Z1904 Base and Bling Strips Adhesive; Z1864 Slate Striped Twist Ties; Z1932 Silver Geomertirc Washi; Z7183B Lollydoodle paper; cardstock Black 1386; Crystal Blue 1292; White 1385; and Black ink Z2105.

You can substitute Mini-Medley Accents Collection Black Z1862 for the buttons on her card.  Thank you for visiting my blog, and thank you Joy for creating this wonderful card.
