Mother's Day

I am blessed today to be a mother and have my wonderful mother still with me. I never thought I wanted to be a mother. Frankly, it was one of the things that was furthest from my mind. Since becoming a mother of two, my life has never been the same and I am so thankful and humbled by it. There is always a new "normal" that I have to adjust to, and adjusting is not one of my strong suits. Be that as is may, I couldn't be happier even in moments of extreme frustration. (After those moments have passed...) I pray that I can be the mother to my children that my mother was to me.

A little about this card for my mom...this was my first experience was "fabric paper". I love the look and effect, but it is a real pain to get straight! You cannot see it in the photo, but I sprayed it with pearl glimmer mist and distress inked the edges.  All of the paper flowers and die cuts were in white and sprayed with starbursts, flat fabios, glimmer mist or inked. I always purchase my flowers in white to color them to my preference.The  center of the card is layered above two different doilies, which are dies from Cheery Lynn Designs. Very intricate and beautiful. I cased this design from Arlene.
