One of the things I have enjoyed doing (for years and years...probably for over 20 year now) is making handmade greeting cards. I use different things to embellish them~ ribbons, raffia, rubber stamp, cut outs, computerized text phrases, glitters, pressed flowers, charms, buttons, stickers, artificial flowers, and many other things. I have my own line of cards at my flower shop and some are available on my Etsy shop. I just like making (and receiving) handmade cards because they look so special and pretty!
I have them in English, Spanish and Tagalog ( Filipino ).
Here are a few of my Mother's Day cards...
It seems like we just had Valentine's rush yesterday... then Easter...and now, it's Mothers' day!? Already? Wow..time is just zooming by! Anyway, I love decorating at my flower shop (Fitzgerald's Flowers, Gifts and Home Decor). I have so much fun putting vignettes together for the holiday, as well as making greeting cards. I do this way ahead in advanced so I can get ready doing all the prep work for fresh floral arrangements. Mothers' week started today. We're delivering flowers and plants, balloons and gift baskets all throughout this week. Friday and Saturday will be more hectic though. We're usually closed on Sundays, except of course when the holiday falls on a Sunday, which Mothers' Day is this Sunday, May 8th. Then Tuesday, May 10th is Mexican Mother's Day, which means we'll be busy too.
Well, let me wish you all Moms ( StepMoms,Grandmas, Aunts, Godmothers, Sisters, etc) out there a Happy Mothers' Day!
Thanks for stopping by!
