Show & Tell Friday for May 8

For Show & Tell today, a few of my favorite Mother's Day cards, old and new, and a couple of other spring cards.

Here's a vintage card with the traditional Mother's Day carnations.

Another vintage one, this one with a musical theme. Love the detail!

One of my daughters gave me this one year. I love picnics, and so do they, so this is very appropriate.

I love this Mother's Day card with the dear little ladybugs having tea. I had to snip off part of the envelope too, with its matching ladybugs.

This may be my favorite Mother's Day card of all. Isn't this a wonderful quote from Louisa May Alcott? I display this card in various ways throughout the year.

I couldn't resist sharing this vintage spring birthday card. The little gate actually opens!

And here is the inside of this card.

Last but not least, a little vintage birth announcement. It fits the spring theme (and the motherhood one) so I had to share it.

That is my simple Show & Tell for today. To see what others have shared for Show & Tell Friday, head on over to There is No Place Like Home.

Happy Show & Tell Friday... and happy Mother's Day to all of the moms out there!
