**Happy MoTHers DaY!!*~

My card for my Mother

And card for my Sister in Law ~ Marlene

Here are 3 blogging mothers
whom I really love
and enjoy their parenting
adventures, you can find them
herehere,  and here!

On Saturday afternoon I received my bottle from
Anitra in our Mother's Day Bottle Swap
hosted by Mollye.

Here are some pictures of the bottle's contents.
We were to place things items in the bottle that
reminded us of our mothers.  Anitra's bottle was
filled with delightful objects and lovely pictures.

Meet Anitra's Darling Mama

All of the treasures the bottle contained.

Pictures of Anitra's mom through the years

Anitra's coffee pot people magnets
These are so adorable and she sells
them in her Etsy Store.

A recording of her mother's music, a cartoon
 recipe bookmark, angels, a ring Anitra created
(from her other Etsy shop), vintage hankies,
a deck of cards  from Japan (dad was stationed
 there) to show how her mom loves games,
and some delicious candy.

Her sweet mom today with her sisters!
Thank You Anitra!

Happy Happy Joyous Day to ALL!

The little gal in my cards is from paper whimsey there is a link on my
sidebar to the store. The paper is from paper source
 ~  I love that store!

you had time to make cards?! you are my hero! I did go over for a great visit - poor mom has been in a wheelchair for nearly 2 months and can't stand not being mobile, though it's necessary, hopefully only for now. love the 29 days of giving - you're always an inspiration¡
