Mother's Day

Hi Everyone,
Hope you are all doing well. I have a special post today, since this Sunday we celebrate Mother's Day here in America. Well I lost my mom 3 years ago, if any of you lost yours you know it is one of life's difficult moments. But sadly it is the natural progression of things and I celebrate her life many times with wonderful memories that I share with my crazy siblings.

But I am fortunate that I have a mother-in-law who treats me like a daughter. She always has been good to me. She and my father in law now live with my husband and I so you know we are very close. I made her this card using a Sherri Baldy stamp. I thought it was appropriate because that woman is always cleaning, what she is cleaning,  I don't know since there is never a mess in her apartment haha.

I colored her with Copics and used a bit of Stickles for some sparkle. The papers are all from a 6 x 6 pad from My Mind's Eye called Lost and Found.

I hope you all have a Happy Mother's Day and that you have someone in your life that you can share a special moment with on that day. I will celebrate being a mom the best way I know how, by loving my girls to pieces hahahaha!

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Chocolate, Coffee and Cards:  Mother's Day
Fussy and Fancy Challenge:  anything Goes
Love to Create challenge:  Mom or Special lady
Besties Challenge: Mother's day or Thank you

Thanks for stopping by!
