Mom's 94th Birthday Card Set


My Mom is going to be 94 years old this Friday. She has lived a good long healthy life. She has always loved flowers. Throughout the summer when her flowers were blooming, I made a special effort to take pictures.

So today, I have been busy making her some cards that she can use all year. I have 15 of them, stamped with different sentiments. As you can see, I also stamped the outside of the envelope, because I once read that you should never send a naked envelope to someone if you have handmade the card. I never forgot that either!

I still want to do some monogram note cards for her with my JustRite stampers. Curt did some for his Mother and I just love them. I know Mom will enjoy them too.
Be sure and check back to see what I come up with for Mom's birthday!
