Celebrating Mother's Day with Hallmark

Showing someone you love them is a big deal.  The feeling of love is such an important one, so why not tell your loved ones why you love them!  Hallmark helps us share our feelings without those awkward moments!  As are fast approaching Mother's Day, now is the time to remind your mom why and how much you love her!

"Contrary to popular belief and tweets, Hallmark did not invent Mother’s Day. It was former President Woodrow Wilson who was the first to officially declare the holiday in 1914. Although Hallmark didn’t create the holiday, Hallmark does work year after year to help families celebrate the mother figures in their lives in an authentic and meaningful way."
To help you celebrate the 100th anniversary of Mother’s Day with the special women in your life, Hallmark would like to share a gift pack that includes a Pics ‘N’ Props gift and a Mother’s Day greetings pack featuring cards from the collections outlined below.

·         Pics ‘N’ Props: Memories are ready and waiting to be homemade with Pics ‘n’ Props — a fun and easy way to make a DIY Mother’s Day gift! New for 2014 is a “We Love You Because” kit that includes a chalkboard and four-photo frame, allowing multiple family members to call out their favorite things about mom or grandma.
·         Sarah Jessica Parker Collection: This collection includes 12 Mother’s Day cards created by a stylish mom herself — Sarah Jessica Parker. Parker worked with the Hallmark creative team to pair vintage artwork from the Hallmark archives with modern touches and embellishments. The designs feature simple, authentic and heartfelt messages, perfect for your mom and friends.
·         Hallmark Signature Collection: Celebrate mom or grandma with a card as unique as she is. With beautiful papers, rich textures and unique embellishments, each card in the Hallmark Signature Collection is handcrafted to be extra special, just like mom. 
·         Magic Prints: Magic Prints is a line of greeting cards and gifts designed for kids to give mom or grandma a hand (their handprint) without a mess! New card designs for 2014 include Disney® characters, Peanuts® characters, as well as a baby’s footprint format — perfect for first-time moms.  

Hallmark sent me a few Mother's Day cards to share and this beautiful and very fun Frame Kit!  The card I want to share with you today was my favorite from the batch.

I have reserved this card for my Mom.  She could never be replaced, even as she is no longer with us.  Every day I am reminded of why I love her.  Many reason pass through simple looks in my daughter's face or the giggle of my son.  She lives on in all of us and will never be replaced.

Onto the very fun frame I mentioned!  Hallmark has made a "We love you because" Frame Kit!  It includes a chalkboard and chalk to create a personalized gift.

I love this frame kit!  It is a perfect way to get the children involved with memories.  I personally hang a ton of frames and photos on my walls.  I love looking at all of our memories!  This frame will fit in perfectly with the others on the wall.

  1. My favorite Mother's Day Memory is from about 30 years ago, when my then 6-yr.old daughter and 4-yr.old son decided to serve me "Breakfast in Bed" for Mother's Day!! It was the one and only time they ever tried it. I ended up wearing most of what they served me, after they so neatly placed it in front of me, then jumped on the bed to share it with me!! LOLOL They were so upset about the mess that was made, they vowed never to do it again, and they didn't!! I still smile when I think back to that beautiful morning!! <3

  2. My favorite Mother's Day memory is when I was a brand new mom. I was just so happy and thankful as I held my sweet little baby on Mother's Day

  3. my first mothers day... how special.. justina justice

  4. My memory is when i was in Elementary School and i would always make my mom a Mother's Day present, i could see her face light up.

  5. My 1st birth is most memorable!

  6. My first Mother's Day of course! Although I didn't get to sit back and do nothing all day, I was and still are very blessed with my family.

  7. My favorite mother's day moment was the mothers day after the births of both of my kiddos!

    When I was pregnant with my oldest I was at work and my mom brought me my first mothersday day card... That was the day it hit me i was so excited!

  9. it's not my favorite by far but definitely one I will never forget, on mothers day of 2010 my mom was severely beat by an ex boyfriend. I received a call from her at 6:30 that morning to come and pick her up. something I never want to experience again.

  10. my favorite moment is when me an my family are together for the day

  11. one year at Church, each child was given a flower to present to their Mom. most of the children just handed the flower to Mom, but my son said, "thanks Mom for taking me to all the ballgames and other stuff you do". will never forget it..
