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!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
