I needed some new Inspiration for Mothers day cards. Thanks so much! Would love to win!!

Tracey Magner April 19, 2017 - 2:22 PM

Beautiful cards and Beautiful stamps. I am so so HAPPY to see a profit is going to the Syracuse community which is near to my heart, My Mother has and continues to live there for 83 years and myself (56) many years (delete my age after you read this, lol ). We have supported them and the Salvation Army for many years. I was also so pleased about your Parents Blog Hop, my Mothers best friend who is almost 92 yrs young is unfortunately in a nursing home in the Syracuse area, the sad part is it has been rated the worst one in the country, yes the country, which upsets us very much and we have had no success in getting her moved. I worked in a nursing home many years ago and they can be the loneliest place sometimes so this Blog hop you are doing is a wonderful thing, you all are amazing for doing it. I have been very ill myself but I will try to contribute as much as possible. You are wonderful people for sure.

It is a wonderful thing that you are doing to help the elderly. Senior living places can be very depressing and you will lighten up them a little bit. Love your cards :)

I have had terrible luck finding Father’said Day cards for my Dad. He doesn’t have any hobbies. I really like the stamps you offer above– for Dad’s and Moms. The cards are dynamite! Your stamps never disappoint…they are great!

He IS Able!

As always, your stamps and cards are beautiful. But more importantly I love the Cause!! I’ve been taking cards to our local Senior Care Facilities for years. They love the cards but more importantly they just want someone to spend a little time with them. Now that my grandparents are gone …. I love to hear their stories. Thank you again for such a sweet post!!

I’m ordinarily drawn to the stamp sets with the larger, layered flowers, but this Mother’s Day set has “spoken to me.” I’ve seen so many possibilities for using it on this Blog Hop!
