There are 8 amazing people who call my mother mom, each one of us live a happy, healthy life because of her unconditional love, her dedication to family and her compassionate nature. For over 30 years now we have all gathered together every Sunday night with our spouses and children for dinner, laughs, song, and sometimes dance and water fights. That’s over 35 people every Sunday night unless you count the dogs. Every year for over 30 years she has hosted a “Tea Party” for the girls and we wear our Sunday best complete with hats…how perfect is this card for her?

This is a variation of a “Z” fold card, I have hesitated to try it because it looks a little complicated, but it’s really very easy and I’m going to show you how.
