Show Your Mum You Care This Mother's Day in America Whilst Helping the Environment, and Your Pocket!

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 7, 2009) -

Editors Note: There are two photos that are associated with this press release.

Our Mums are one of the most important people in our lives, from the second we are born, that unconditional bond between Mother and child is unique and special.

Mother's Day is your chance to show your Mum how much you appreciate her and all the things she has done for you over the years. Mothering Sunday in the United Kingdom and America falls in different months, but one thing that we can be sure about is the fact that many Mums throughout both countries are being treated to breakfast in bed, a heartfelt card, and a lovely bouquet of her favorite flowers. This is the time to go that extra mile and show your Mum how much you care, after all, it's the little things that she will remember for the rest of her life.

Mothering Sunday in the UK has come and gone, but for our friends across the pond, Mothering Sunday falls on May 10th, so there is plenty of time to start planning for the occasion - no excuses! What do you normally do on Mother's Day? Maybe it's time to embrace the age of technology and send your Mum an electronic greeting card this Mother's Day.

E-Cards are definitely becoming more and more popular with many people opting for the quicker, cheaper, and eco friendly alternative to paper greetings. If you have never sent an e-card before then Mother's Day is the perfect chance to give them a go because eCards.co.uk has a wide selection of wonderful cards to choose from. You are sure to find a card that your Mum will enjoy.

This free ecard site offers a fun and funky application called 'Face It' where you have the chance to upload a photograph of your Mum and incorporate it into the card design. A great idea as this means you are able to add that extra special touch to your greeting. This particular 'Face It' card stars your Mum in the World Mum Olympics we see her making a pancake breakfast, completing the housework chores, and the mountain of ironing - all in record time! The text accompanying the closing sequence of the card is short and sweet "To The World's Greatest Mum...Thanks!" Imagine the surprise on your Mum's face when she sees herself starring in her own card!

Another card to try is the 'fan-tastic' Your Biggest Fan greeting. This card has a short sequence, and shows a group of office style fans on a table, with the biggest, and happiest fan in the middle. The accompanying text "Mum, I'm your biggest fan" displays at the bottom of the card.

A cute and caring Mother's Day e-Card to try out is Mum's Jumper, this greetings card shows a lamb having given up his wooly fleece to knit his Mum a jumper as a Mother's Day gift. This card is a great choice to show your Mum that you will go that extra mile for her and make her feel appreciated and special this Mothering Sunday.

E-Card greetings are fast becoming a firm favorite for many people as a green alternative to paper greetings cards. Since electronic cards are sent via cyber space, no paper is required, just think of the trees you are saving by opting to send an e-Card. With recycling containers from everyday household products, composting left- over food, and perhaps switching to energy efficient light bulbs, in general we are becoming increasingly aware of the danger man has put the planet in over the years, and these small actions all help to lower our carbon footprint. Why not go that extra step further and send e-Cards to all your friends and loved ones on special occasions, you will be helping the environment by doing so. Just always remember to switch your computer off afterwards, rather than leaving it on standby!

Something that is constantly cropping up everywhere we look is the dreaded phrase 'credit crunch'. With people being careful with their spending, it makes sense to try and save the pennies where possible, and opting for a free service to send your greetings card like eCards.co.uk is a great place to start. You can have fun along the way with the 'Face It' application too, a sure fire way to provide some giggles both for recipient and sender.

If you are an American Mum I hope you have a fun filled exciting Mothering Sunday this year, sit back, relax, and take some 'me time'. Enjoy!
