May is Mothers Day

I wanted to share an excerpt from Jeanette Lymon’s blog.  I read this today and thought how true that is.  If my mother was someone else besides her, I would also be different than I am today

 “Because of you, I am me.”

Could there be a more touching way to tell your mother that a piece of her lives on in you?

Mothers deserve to hear that they’re doing their job well on more than one day of the year. Giving her a little artwork that she can display in her home all year long will be like telling her how much she means to you every single day. It’s a tiny way to repay her for all of those sleepless nights and messy bedrooms. It may seem small, but to her it means everything. So this Mother’s Day, give her everything!

Close to my Heart has everything to make your mother a beautiful card and paper, ribbons, and embellishments to make your mother a beautiful scrapbook full of memories and memorabilia.  Check out our special Mother’s Day Stamp set in time to make your special Mother’s Day Card.  You can order here. The My Acrylix® Flowers for Mom stamp set (B1473).  With this set, you can grace all your artwork for this special day with an extra touch of love.

Your mother has devoted her life to giving you memories, so a fitting gift would be scrapbook pages full of your memories of her! Cards, too, give a special mom in your life the opportunity to glimpse the ripples her loving care has created across generations.  Check out and like my facebook page for inspiring cards and layouts and monthly specials.
