Happy Mothers Day!!!

Every Day should matter for not just mom but for everyone. I made this Mother's Day card to share on my blog today just to let everyone know that you matter, are loved and good thoughts are being sent your way. I made my card using Teresa Collins "Everyday Moments" paper pad and sticker sheet.
The flowers are fussy cut from the paper and they along with the sticker sentiment were placed on pop dots. I placed the larger flower I cut out on to a 2" and 2 1/2" circle. On the center of the flowers I placed a pit of Ocean Flower Soft using a little dab of Scotch Quick Glue. The "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment is from a rub on that I had. I hope everyone has had a blessed Mothers Day - I know I have. I would like to end my post with the sentiments that were in a card I received from my dear niece Tanja. Tanja lived with us all of her teenage years, became a part of our family and we look at her as a daughter more than a niece, she has always been a blessing to our family and we love her dearly.
"Things I Learned From My Mom"

What I learned from Mom
Where do I start:
It's like a book
that's written on my heart,
and wherever I go in life, 
it guides me in ways
I bet she doesn't 
even realize.

 First of all, I learned that 
sometimes a hug 
can say more than words.
And that I could trust myself
as I began to make my way 
in the world,
because I was standing on the solid foundation
she gave me.

I learned 
that strength comes 
from standing up 
and doing what's right,
even if sometimes 
you stand alone.
 that excuses
don't  work
(no matter how many good ones
I came up with!)

I learned that success 
comes from trying, failing, 
and trying again, not from everything 
being perfect all the time.

That kindness 
counts more than 
getting ahead. 
That times may change,
but the important 
things don't.

I Learned
that no matter
where I am, there's someone who cares
and believes in me. 
And I learned 
that there really are
angels on this earth... because my mom 
is one of them.
