HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Hi blog friends,

This is a very quick post.  It's Mother's Day and I made this card for my mother who is in a nursing home with Alzheimer's Disease.  She's a courageous fighter and has won many associated physical battles with this disease.  It's debilitating and humiliating yet she sets the bar mighty high with her dignity and her embedded faith as she manages every day.  Never complaining and always grateful.  She is my hero.  

There's a challenge in making a card for a person with Alzheimer's.  There can be nothing they can tear off and swallow or fiddle with, so I don't put any embellishments or layers on her cards.  I love making cards for her and she seems to enjoy getting them.  My image is from GKD "Friendship's Garden" which I think is discontinued.  I colored it with pencils (something I haven't done for awhile).  




Happy Mother's Day to all of you!  Thanks so much for stopping by.

I'm entering this card in OWH Mid-week Challenge "May Flowers".  And while I'm talking about OWH...get in on the blog hop for Memorial Day weekend....the link is at the top right of my side bar.  Check it out.  

So much for a short post!!!!  :)
