Every day is kids day...

I just realized I had not posted my cards I made for Mother's Day.  Sheesh! It's amazing I managed to get anything done this month!  I really wanted to get this one posted because after June 1st, this stamp will no longer be available.  It is in the Celebrate the Everyday catalog and I fell in love with it the first time I saw it.  The sentiment, while absolutely wonderful, can easily be changed by adding a new one using the decorative label punch.  Beautiful and versatile!!

My post title probably doesn't make a lot of sense at a glance, but it comes from a family discussion that occurs every year on Mother's Day.  I come from an amazing, large family and we are still very close, even though we are all very busy with our own families.  We still manage to get together for special occasions like Mother's Day.  The guys do all of the grilling and the moms get to go through the food line first.  This usually starts the discussion from the guys.  "Hey, we cooked the food; we should go first." followed by "When it's Father's Day, you can be first, today is OUR day!".  Then the kids chime in "We NEVER get to go first... When is Kids Day?!" to which the response is always in unison "EVERY DAY is kids day!"

It is all good natured fun and we all have a great time teasing each other.  I am so blessed to have a wonderful mom who is such an awesome role model, and two fabulous sisters who mean the world to me.  I would not be nearly as independent if not for their examples of strength.  Mix in the mother-in-law and all of my sister-in-laws and I am surrounded by amazing women!  I hope my girls will learn from the women in their lives and turn out to be strong, amazing women too.  They are already well on their way!!!

There won't be much time for crafting this weekend, but I am hoping to get some scrapbooking done.  Haven't made a page in quite some time and I'm hoping my mojo hasn't packed up and moved out!  Wish me luck!  I hope you have a marvelous weekend and find some time to be creative!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Seriously...what is it with men and their food though?? LOL! Sounds like the perfect day filled to the brim with wise and wonderful estrogen. It's not even a worry that your girls haven't had the best roll models. Your card is gorgeous Margaret and reflects your love and appreciation so very well.
    Happy Belated Mother's Day to you my friend,
