Card For Mom

I hope everyone had an opportunity to celebrate their moms, in a very special way.  My mom passed a way years ago and yet I confess to her my love and explain how much I miss the cooking lessons over the phone and our Sunday calls to discuss the week and all our activities.

I celebrate my mom by being the woman she raised me to be, and making sure that I buy and plant begonias in multiple colors to represent her flower garden which I complained about having to work when I was younger.  I still hear my mom telling me that life wasn't easy and neither was it going to be what I wanted it to be all the time.

She told me that
"Life is like a flower, 
every bloom is different in every way 
but each holds its own beauty, 
if we just take time to look beyond the flaws".

My mom was a strict, firm, God-fearing woman that had a heart filled with love for God and family (in that order).  Anyway to move this post along I would like to announce that we have our first winner in May's Challenge.  Click the Monthly Winners Tab above to see if you're a winner.

Here is a quick and simple Mother's Day card I'd like to share with everyone.   My grand-daughter made it for her mom and her mom was really pleased to know that her daughter stayed with Mema for the sole purpose of creating what she referred to as a masterpiece.

The paper she used is from DCWV and Recollections.  The verse on the inside she typed using Word and then printed them out on Neenah paper along with the image.

SB Deckled Rectangles and Lacy Circles were used and WOC flowers.  On the inside she used a doily to take up space and then added a small circle to add the sentiment.  Lastly she made the envelope using MS Scoring Board and hand-crafted the flower for the closing flap.

She was proud and so were her mother and I.  Leave a comment and let her know what you think.

Don't forget to check the Winners Tab above to see if you're a winner and if you haven't entered May's Challenge there is still time before our second draw.

Until we meet again

Hello Lesia...Just want to say thank you for visiting my Blog and leaving me such a wonderful, heartfelt comment. I am glad that you took the time to read my post and got something out of what I shared and the Word of God. I know that there's a purpose for everything that God place in my heart to do and with your comment, I know that the Lord is working in the lives of the people he graciously sends our way. Thanks for sharing your thought. I just read your post here and I feel for you because I, too, lost my Mom and happens to miss her every single day. I never understood her true value till she went to be with the Lord and I am reminded each day of the fun times we had together. She loved the Lord so much and I am sure she is perfectly happy to be with the King of Kings...I love the card you featured with the handmade envelope, super cool! Lastly, I love the quote you share of your Mom's. Great wisdom from the Lord. Have a blessed day and I will join you Challenge as often as I can.
