It's that time of year where we celebrate those wonderful women who brought us into this world, or to give thanks to those special women in your life who have been there for you whenever you have needed them.
Mother's Day is celebrated in the UK and Ireland on Sunday March the 10th. Originally Mothering Sunday had it's roots in the church, however by the mid 1930's the custom had largely declined in the UK and Europe. During WWII US soldiers re-introduced the holiday to the UK and by the 1950's it had a resurgence of popularity and was celebrated on the fourth Sunday during Lent to bring it in line with the centuries old tradition of Mothering Sunday.
In the USA, Canada, Australia and in many other countries Mother's Day is celebrated on May 12th 2013. If you are interested in learning more, why not have a look here.
Without further ado, here are the cards I have created for those special women.

The next two cards are newer creations.
This one is for my Nanna using Papertrey Ink's Spring Friendship Fillers and coloured with Promarkers.
I had best be off, I need to find that perfect present to go with the cards!
