For you, Mom

I finally got a Mother's Day card made for my Mom last night.  I've been struggling with it but its finished now and I quite like it.  My Mom and me are close.  I consider her one of my closest friends as well as the best Mom a girl could as for.  :-).  Unfortunately, we live really far apart.  I'm in NB and my Dad and her are in Calgary, AB.  It's been hard not to see her whenever I wanted since we moved here.  And while I don't miss Calgary I really miss my Mom (and my Dad too!).  At least we talk often.  At least once a week (thank goodness we have a long distance plan!  LOL).  Our conversations last quite a long time.  Usually, at least, an hour.  We are going to visit them this Christmas which I'm looking forward to.  By then it'll have been almost two years since we've seen each other.  Too long, but flights in Canada are just ridiculously expensive.  Anyway, this card is for you, Mom.

I don't do a lot of stitching on my cards but I just had to for this idea.  After I sponged and splatter the blue (Brocade Blue by SU!) I stitched in white.  I stamped the sentiment (SU!) in Timber Brown StazOn then attached the flowers (Walmart) and the rhinestones.  I layered it on a floral green paper (Basic Grey) then attached to white card base.  Every year I realize that I don't have a Happy Mother's Day stamp.  This one does the job nicely but I really should get a proper stamp.  :-)

I'm going to enter this in The Paper Players challenge #144, which is a Mother's Day theme.

Now I just have to make something for my mother-in-law and then I can move onto some birthday cards.  Anyway, wishing you all a fabulous day!
