Mother's Day sort of snuck up on me this year. And this year, of all years, I think my mother needs the most encouragement. It didn't take long to realize my recently arrived monthly subscription of My Paper Pumpkin would be perfect! I had already watched the monthly video to see the contents: a 4x4 frame, a sleeve, 2 ink spots, 3 stamps, 12 tags, several hearts, 2 flags, glue dots, 2 buttons, ribbon and twine.
I ended up tweaking the frame to use my own piece of gray paper as the background and a different stamp embossed in white with a Bible verse, which would be more customized to my mom. But I did use the included heart to serve as a frame to put around a picture of my parents and the Happy Mother's Day stamp on the sleeve that wraps the frame. I used some of the extra supplies to make the card pictured below with the included For You stamp and more of the heart punchouts. Plus, I still have several supplies left over!
I sent the frame and the card to my mom early since this week leading up to Mother's Day my family is trying, more than ever, to trust in the Lord with all our hearts and lean not on our own understanding. If you think to, pray for us...and make sure to tell your mom you love her this Mother's Day!
