Mother's Day Projects:Strawberries!

Good morning all, I trust everyone had a blessed Mother's Day filled with lots of attention from family. I sure enjoyed having all five of my children here with me and a few other family members as well. My gift from my hubby each year is that he cleans the house that day and makes the family dinner meal. Thank you honey!!
Each year I create a Mother's Day project that I give out not only to my mom and sisters, but several other moms (some friends, some family) who are really special to me. I started this back in 2000 when we were spending each Mother's Day at the County Fair with our kids who were showing their animals in 4H. It was a four day fair and Sunday (Mother's Day) was the last day and we were very ready for the end as stall duty started at 6:00am! I will always treasure those memories and even though our County Fair days are over, I still continue the tradition of my Mother's Day goodies.
This year's theme was strawberries. I decided it would be fun to do some canning , so here in the valley it is strawberry season and homemade strawberry jam is delicious. Along with the jam, I found a recipe for Friendship Scone mix and decided that would make a wonderful addition to my little package. I finished off with a card made from PTI cardstock, stamps and dies. The Mother's Day sentiment is from My Creative Time's Mom You Rock Set.
I thought this would be fun to Link Up over at Pink Cricut
