Precious Gifts shared this wonderful Mother’s Day card with me today – Thank you Jeanice!

The card is INTERACTIVE!

Here is what Mrs. Ripple shared: “The butterfly from the kids feet were laminated. They are on the dowel stick, which is hiding inside the card. The butterfly comes out so they can put in a plant or outdoors. We also have been eating green beans, tomatoes and lettuce from our garden the kids planted.
