Happy Mother's Day!

Good Monday Morning!

I made a sweet card for my Mom and needed to wait till after Mother's Day to share it. It felt good to get in my craft room and get crafty. It's nice to know that I still remember how to put something together. 

The colors in the Card Concept photo was a jumping point for me. I used some Melissa Frances papers I have hoarded because they were so pretty. So of course who is more deserving than Mom? The pink heart is actually hand stamped by me. The rest was just little bits of this and that to embellish it. 

I will share at Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes and The Card Concept - Mother's Day. I was inspired by the pastel colors. 

Hope everyone has a good week.

With deepest sympathy

Good morning sunshines!  The sun is out this morning and I'm hoping the wind stays away and that it will warm up and feel like spring again.  

I am not sure I even know how to blog or what the cool thing is anymore. It's been over a year since I even posted anything. 

I know our world is in some crazy times and I am grateful to work in the health care industry and have a job still. I do miss crafting. I have made it in my craft room to make a few things here and there. over the last few years. I just never posted them. 

I have a lot of changes in my future, so I have gone in my beloved crafty space to see what I can part with. I have a lot of downsizing to do. My craft room was always a place that brought me peace and calm. It was my outlet. I just don't have the opportunity to do this anymore, but I do hope to continue from time to time.

Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card. One of our doctor's just lost her mother to this dreaded COVID-19 virus. She is coming back to work today, so I wanted to have a card made with love to let her know I am thinking of her in this difficult time.


I had the patterned paper you see on the bottom still laying on my desk to be put away with my other scraps, so I decided to use it as my starting point for my design. I have a mason jar on the shelf that has circle cut outs of burlap, and I grabed that next along with a chipboard butterfly that I painted and distressed. I have always loved working with seam binding, so I grabbed a length of that to create a fussy bow. 

I am going to join at a few places for fun.

I hope everyone stays healthy and safe!

Warmly,
