Mother's Day Recap
I had a pretty good Mother's Day yesterday. After church, we went for lunch at my SIL's. After lunch, we took the kids to the nearby school and played switch against the brick wall, which was a lot of fun. We came home and relaxed a bit and then went for a walk after supper. We finished off the day by watching a DVD while snuggling on the couch and then reading a chapter of Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief together.
I told the kids that the best Mother's Day gift for me would be some photos of them.... here's what I got...
These were taken in our backyard before church. And these next two were taken on our front steps after church.
And here is the card that Sage made me. She's always so thoughtful when making cards because she'll take the likes of the recipient into consideration. She wanted to add a bike because she knows how much I enjoy my bike, so she used my Hero Arts wooden stamp (she'd actually stamped it right onto the white cardstock at first, but being not used to wooden stamps (I'm not a huge fan of them either!), it smudged. I showed her how she could save her card by stamping onto the patterned paper and layering it over top.) The stamp and die she used are Lil Inkers from last month's release (I'd won these-- aren't they great?) She also asked me what colours I'd like.
I told the kids that they were my best Mother's Day gift ever. (Of course, I wouldn't have turned down a pedicure or this fabulous new stamp set and coordinating dies!)
Thanks for looking!
