My Sheri Crafts Challenge #109: Mother's Day

For our challenge @ My Sheri Crafts your project should reflect what makes your Mother so unique! My Mother-in-law is a very sweet and special person and there are many things that come to mind that define her. She came from a large family and lived a busy life raising 4 children, 4 step children and helping raise several grandchildren. An avid sewer, quilter and crafter, she possesses far too many talents to list. Since I focused on her sewing previously, today I'm focusing on her joys in life.
Among them are her love of traveling and enjoying nature's beauty. She'd leave the Midwest in winter to enjoy our ocean, parks, mountains, trees, plants, flowers and birds in CA and AZ. We spent many vacation days making sure she saw as much of the two states as we could. When she had her own home, it was always filled with beautiful blooming plants/flowers/trees that would attract birds to her home, patio and yard. I hope this simple little card with glittery butterfly will bring a smile to her face, since she's so very special to us. We can't be there for Mother's Day, but I know she loves receiving cards. Her daughter posts them prominently in her retirement home room for her enjoyment.
Thanks for your visit here today and now that you know a bit about my special MIL, please share your Mother's uniqueness with us @ My Sheri Crafts!
