I appreciate anything and everything my children give me. However, I have to say I’m partial to homemade cards where the kids have had a hand in the making process.

If you (or Dad) are stuck for Mother’s Day Card or activity, this simple card is ready to print and fold. Click the front cover above for the PDF file.

Mother’s Day is a day of mixed emotions for me. I love celebrating the blessings of motherhood with my children but my own mother isn’t with me anymore. I always miss her but it’s even more obvious on days like this.  I would love to give my mum a hug this Mother’s Day and say, “I love you so much Mum. Thank you for being my mother.” So, if you can, make sure you do! Don’t miss an opportunity!

    I love the personalised tea bags too! When I was about 16 I bought a pair of Mickey Mouse tea squeezers back for my Nan as she’s a big tea lover. She brings them out when I’m there but I know she secretly prefers her other ones as it has a bigger “squeezing” area. If I made the photo large enough for her to grip, i’m pretty sure she would love these!

    Hope you have a lovely Mother’s Day. I can only imagine how hard it must be without your Mum.

      Aren’t they just gorgeous! Yes, I think it would work just as well if the photo was bigger. I am going to make some for my Grandmother with pictures of the kids. She’ll love it!
