umbreallas + mother's day = love

Mother's Day becomes more special with each passing year. Our little brood has increased to 4 over the last few years. As our children are getting older.....I realize that this is the most critical time of motherhood. What they learn now will shape them into the adults they will too soon become! It is important to me. To spend enough time with my children. So that when they're grown and gone and our nest is empty....our little broad will want to come home from time to time and spend time with us. Here is a little something I created for Mother's Day.....

I mostly used Cosmo Cricket goodies here. The card stock is stampin' up. I think the border is Heidi Grace. The sentiment is a cheapy and the little primas are making memories.

EDIT: the umbrella is in the Cosmo Cricket kit. it's a die cut. but be sure I'm going to use the negative to make my own!! :)

Did you have a template for the umbrella or cut it free hand? Very pretty indeed

Super super cute!!! I love my parents but never really close to them. I try but just not working out. I was very close to my grandpa. I felt and still feels like he brought me up. He's gone now and I am less motivated to visit Indonesia. Sounds terrible, huh? So, due to that, I try to do my best to be the best mom to our daughter and soon two daughters. I don't want them to be like me.

I am so with you on the mom thing. Let me tell you that those days never come again. My girls are all away at college and it gets lonely. Those precious minutes go so fast. SUper job on this card. I am quite sure you are a great mom...

Absolutely stunning! Enjoy your mother's day and your family! You're totally right...they grow up so quickly and your investment in them, innumerable.
