Mother's Day Tribute - Creative Monday Blog Hop

   Like many countries Mother's Day 2013 is celebrated on Sunday, May 12, in Jamaica. It is always a very special day for me as my mother is a very important person in my life. In fact she has been the only parent that I have had since I was 13.  Mom has always been there for me in good times and bad times proving to be a tower of strength through many of life's trials.  On this Mother's Day she is celebrating with 2 children although she gave birth to 4.  I know that my twin sister Janine and brother Sutcliffe are here with us in spirit so when I make a card I never leave their names out.  Below is the card that I made for Mom. I  got cartridge paper, old calendars, paste and scissors and got busy. Of course two of my favourite things had to be on the card - a bird and flowers.
  A mother's love is very special. Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers who are celebrating this special day.

I love that you make your mom's card. I thought about doing that this year too, but bought one in the end. The kids made their own for their grandma's though. :)
