Aah, Mom. What would we do without her? When I was a child I asked my mom why there wasn't a Children's Day. She told me that was because every day was Children's Day. And that's exactly what makes moms so wonderful; they make it possible for children to feel special all the time. So on one day a year, we return the favor.

The art on this page will allow you to honor your mom by making your own handmade Mothers Day cards. All you have to do is download the art by following the instructions below, size it to fit pre-cut cardstock you can find at art supply or craft stores and print it on your home printer. If you also embellish the art with a small amount of glitter glue, it will make the final result all the more special. Mom will love you for it!
