I have a friend just down the street who was born on Mother's Day. Of course, the date for Mother's Day moves around each year so she only gets to celebrate her birthday on Mother's Day once every few years. As long as her mother was alive, they always had a big family celebration celebrating both occasions together. Her own children tried to carry on the tradition but over time it evolved into a birthday celebration on the Saturday of the weekend (regardless of the date) and a Mother's Day celebration on the Sunday. Since they can't go out to dinner this year, her daughter is doing a back yard BBQ at her house today, then the family is coming to my friend's home for an order-in, family meal tomorrow. What a great tradition!
I made her a card and I used one of my favorite Conie Fong images, "Emma Rose." Don't forget that we have two challenges over on our Facebook page every month. One is for colored images only and the other is for the finished products. Both of them require that a Conie Fong image be used but beyond that, the theme is always "Anything Goes" along with an optional twist which this month is "Females/Mothers."
