None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Mothers Day (Mother in Law)

A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.
Irish Proverb

Good morning ... Mothers Day is coming!
I made this card for my Mother in Law
I have to say I am most  grateful that I do not have the stereotypical Mother-in-Law!
She is not intrusive.
She does not tell me I need to treat her "boy" better. 
She never told me how to raise my kids.
And while she may not approve of everything I've done is the 30 something years I've been with her son, she's never been spiteful or mean.

I think I am one lucky Daughter in Law!

Here is the card I made for her!
Yes, the banners are hand cut. I keep telling myself I should buy the banner dies from SU! but I can bring myself to invest the money on something that I can, more or less, cut by hand. :O(


Size: 5 x 7

I had to smile about the stereotypical MIL. When my husband was really sick the first time his mother showed up on my door step to check and see if I was doing a good job. LOLOLOL You are a very lucky lady! Your card is beautiful and I know she loved it and will keep it. Lovely colors and embellishments too! Very pretty!
