CAS Mother's Day Cards

It's sort of a CAS weekend here on my blog!  Today I'm sharing a few of the Mother's Day cards I created for my sisters-in-law.  Mother's Day, to me, is not just about celebrating my mother (and stepmother, and two mothers-in-law, lol). To me, it's more a general celebration of motherhood; it's a glorious club to be a part of!  The card above is for my husband's youngest sister, who is expecting her second child early this summer.  And happily for my son (currently the only boy on that side of the family, amongst 4 girlie girls!), she's having a boy.  I used the large flourish from the Romantic Border cling jumbo stamp set from Stampendous in the lower corner, and added a blue baby buggy

For my little brother's wife, who I'm thrilled to say is expecting their first baby (a girl!!) later this summer, I kept the same layout but I swapped the buggy for a sweet pink baby girl.  I'm so crazy excited about this new addition to the family - my kids are the only two grandkids on that side, so they are thrilled to be welcoming a baby to the clan!

This last card is for the older of my husband's younger sisters (got all that, lol?).  She's not expecting like the other girls are, but she is a momma to two beautiful girls, so she deserves to be celebrated too!  There's just something about cameos that say "mother" to me, so I stamped her this one. Unfortunately, it's retired, so it's no longer available in stores (it was the cling jumbo Cameo by Stampendous).

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there - I hope you have an amazing day filled with love and laughter!
