Happy Mother's Day

To all the Mamas out there, Happy Mother's Day. I hope you're all being spoiled rotten! And to those of you mothers who can't be with your children, and all of you who cannot be with your mothers today....big hugs to all of you. 

Today is a very sad day in my house and especially for my mother. In the early hours of the morning, my mother's brother lost his battle with cancer. He passed very peacefully in his sleep with his sisters and brother by his side, and he is free from pain now.. Rest in peace Uncle Jim. 

You know, I think the most heartbreaking thing is seeing deep sadness and pain in your mother's eyes, and not be able to do anything about it...and I never want to see it again :( She's been in the hospital with Jim for the last week and it's an hour's drive away so she's been staying up there, so it will be nice to have her home tonight to take care of her and give her lots of hugs. 

So here's the card I made for my sister to give Mum. I hope you like it. I made it an easel card because both Mum and Sam like the easel cards.
