Give a Poem a Home: Mother's Day Card 2013

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms of the world!  I made a card for my mother-in-law.  I used a technique I saw on Stamp TV by Gina K. Designs to make the background design.  I love her tutorials for the clarity of instruction.  It's just the right pace and, even when something takes a little longer to do than to explain, she offers great little tips and tidbits while she finishes the step.

My own mother passed away years ago.  When I saw this die cut butterfly by Memory Box, it called to me.  It's name is Vivienne.  That was my mother's name.  I rarely see it spelled this way.  I knew I had to have this butterfly no matter the cost and no matter how far it had to be shipped from.  (Luckily for me, I found it in province!)

So, this card is extra special to me.  It is has both my mothers in it!  Here is the poem I composed for the inside:

You are a mother, so loved, so kind.
We could search the Earth and never find
A mother quite as good as you
To raise us up and see us through.
With a smile and hug we say
Have a lovely Mother's Day!
