Mother's Day Card


Today I made my sweet mother in law a mother's day card. She was a war (WWII) bride from England. She is amazing. She has done many kinds of crafts from making beautiful rugs to painting wonderful watercolor pictures. Now at 89 her hands are to arthritic to even tie and button. We still have those rugs and the watercolor painting are all over our house. I am honored to call her Mom. This is the card.

A beautiful card - she will love it.

How lovely that you have the things she made as treasures. I have a crocheted apron that my Grandma made - gosh it must be over a 100 years old now. It's lovely to hold and imagine them crafting in the same way as we do now.
