Default Invitation for my mother

I'd like to invite my mother from Russia to visit me here in the summer. I'm a
green card holder and my husband is a citizen. I'm wondering whether an invitation
should be made by me or by husband, because I heard it's much better than a citizen
is inviting.

Do you know what that invitation should look like? I read on the consulate's web-site
something like this: Please do not bring any notirized letters or invitations... What
should she bring then?

Thank you in advance for your advice.

I don't think it makes any difference. The fact that you are a PR and not a citizen
actually makes the situation look better, as you could not apply for PR status on her
behalf unless you were a U.S. citizen.

See http://travel.state.gov/visa;visitors.html,

I think it means that she can bring an invitation but it does not have to be
notarized.

http://www.embassyweb.com/bbs/messages/1103.html contains a sample letter of
invitation from an apparently defunct site.

This sample refers to the filing of Form I-134, Affidavit of Support. I don't think
I-134 is always necessary, though certain consulates may require it. Sometimes the
filing of the I-134 may work against the person, if there is any other reason to
believe that the person might stay permanently in the U.S.

It would be good for the applicant to show she has enough money for the trip expenses
in her bank account to pay the expenses of the trip.
