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!!!!  :)

DESIGNER'S CHOICE CHALLENGE AT REPEAT IMPRESSIONS

Hi blog friends!!!

I hope you all had a chance to hop along with the Repeat Impressions Rock Star DT and check out the newest stamp set "Wine Time" by Wendy Wyman.  If not, you can start the hop HERE

Today it's my turn to challenge you all in a Designer's Choice Challenge.  I called my challenge "Bird Watching".  There are so many awesome RI wildlife stamps, but some of my favorites are the birds that Wendy draws.  Here's a link so you can see for yourself!  There are many other's scattered throughout the categories of stamps and I encourage your take some wine time and travel through all of the stamps at Repeat Impressions and The House That Stamps Built

Here's my "Bird Watching" card. 

 
I used bird image #4318-K "Stork" the sentiment is #4116-F.  So take a look around the RI Stamps and enjoy. 

How about joining in on my challenge?  Create a card using a bird image and enter it over at The House.  All the details are there.  You don't have to use an RI stamp to enter, but if you do, you'll be entered in the drawing twice!  You might just win a $25.00 certificate for some of these awesome RI stamps. 

Have fun and enjoy your week!!  Thanks so much for stopping by.
