Hey, crafty friends! If you are a mom, I bet you can relate to things like having to leave the room to laugh at something your kids did after you had to scold them for doing it or looking forward to a little me time at the end of a hectic day… maybe with a little wine added in. Sometimes all we can do is laugh at the situations we find ourselves in! That’s what helps keep me sane through all that being a mother includes!
We are celebrating mothers, grandmothers, and special women in our lives with lots of inspiration for creating Mother’s Day cards this week on the blog. Before we get to the projects for today, here are a few of the promotions that you can take advantage of in the Taylored Expressions webstore:

All of the projects I have to share with you today are sure to bring a smile to your face and keep you laughing. I bet you can relate to some of these cards too… I know I can!
This first card by Jen Shults is created with the new Sarcasti-chicklets stamp set and coordinating dies. I love that Sarcasti-chick is a mom and that she has piles of chicklet babies along with some very relatable and hilarious sentiments. Jen colored Sarcasti-chick and her chicklets with Copic Markers and added them to a color blended background. The sentiment on this card about winging it is so true and is me every single day! Sarcasti-chick will keep you, your mom, and other mom friends laughing on Mother’s Day for sure!
Here’s a perfect Mother’s Day card if you have siblings… or how funny would this be to give to your mom if you are an only child! Sankari Wegman created this card using a sentiment from the My Favorite Mom stamp set (you seriously need to check this set out because all of the sentiments are hysterical!) along with the elephant images from the Mama & Me stamp set. Sankari stamped the baby elephant several time and cleverly added them holding on to the other baby elephant tails.
This next card by Jean Manis is all about that me time I mentioned earlier! Jean used the Choosy Moms stamp set and paired the sentiment with a wine bottle and glasses created with the Little Bits – Wine die collection. The Choosy Moms stamp set includes 6 different and honest sentiments about what it really means to be a mom. I bet you might know some mom friends that would appreciate receiving these snarky sentiments for Mother’s Day!
Finally, here’s a mom truth card for Mother’s Day created by Keia Shipp-Smith. I think most of us have had this thought at one time or another! This sentiment is also a part of the snarky, real life Choosy Moms stamp set and Keia added clothes, baskets, and a trash can using Little Bits – Clothing Confetti, Little Bits – Laundry Basket, and Little Bits – Trash Can dies.
