Inspiration Friday - Inspired by Mom

This coming Sunday in the United States we celebrate Mother's Day. And who better to inspire us than our dear and darling mothers!

Our moms taught us a lot (and continue to teach us!), so let's hear it for mom — for all she does for us!

I searched the web for some quotes about mom, and here is a look at a few of my favorite finds:

I'm betting that your mom has made proud, made you grateful, and made you laugh, too. Here's to all of the wonderful moms in our lives!

With products from My Favorite Things you can create the perfect card for your mama, no matter her style. Let's take a look at some awesome cards created with different moms in mind!

And if your mom is just as sweet as can be, you can thank her for always "bee-ing" there with this adorable design using the Fly-By Friends stamp set and Die-namics. I love Laurie's use of the fence at the bottom to ground the scene she created.

No matter which type of mom yours is, be sure to give her some extra love with a handmade card. Surely, she is your biggest fan! 

Here's to a creative weekend!
