I finished the Mother's Day cards. Whew just in time for the mail. They are all tags, vintage, distressed and ready to inscribe many sincere words on the back.

This one, is a picture of Bill's mom, after the birth of her first daughter, Bill's oldest sister. This will be her Mother's Day card. I love the picture.
I had fun making this one, a bit whimsical for a wonderful step mother in law who loves to garden.

And finally, one for my mom. Yes, that is really me as a newborn. All girlie girl pink lay out and mom will smile looking back at the photo of one of her seven children.

Art history trivia: Vincent Van Gogh had a brother, Theo. Theo suggested that Van Gogh should be a painter. He sent Vincent money for canvases and paints. Theo, the younger brother supported Vincent all his life. Vincent died in Theo's arms and six month later, Theo died.
