Mother's Day cards

Good Morning all! Long time, no talkey.... Sorry, I've been out of the loop for so long, but this weekend I was crafting like nobody's business (what does that even mean, btw...). I had a custom order for 4 mother's day cards that I needed to have done by today, as well as get my mother's and MIL's cards out today, plus get my FIL's birthday card out (his birthday is on Mother's Day this year). I still have 3 more mother's day cards for the pastor's wives in my husband and I's lives and a 3 more birthday cards, but I still got 7 cards done this weekend so I was pretty happy.

I didn't take a pictures of my FIL's birthday card or my MIL's card (oops), and one of the pictures for the custom order didn't save in my email, so I will post that one tomorrow. Below are pictures of my mom's card as well as three of the cards that I made for my boss.

And.... as I actually remembered to write down the brands before I left for work tomorrow I can remember the supplies today, lol.... I kept the designs similar for many of the cards, since I was putting together so many in such a short period of time...

    I'm at least glad that you were feeling well enough to be busy...that in itself is a great thing! =) Have a wonderful week!
