Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and Mother's Day!  I did.  Jordan went to church with me and sat through service.  (This was a big one for him!)  Then, we had lunch at my favorite restaurant, Posado's Tex-Mex!  Yummy!  My husband went overboard and got me a beautiful James Avery bracelet with the birthstones of my two boys and some silver charms.

Here are some hand-made cards I made for my mother and sister-in-law.  Hope you like them as well.
