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.
