Mother's Love is Never-Ending

With my previous craft shows and my last spring craft show the beginning of May, I felt I needed some Mother's Day Cards. Mother's Day has always been rough for me as I did not have a close relationship with my mother but I did have that nurturing with my grandmother and my one aunt. Purchasing Mother's Day cards would be hard for me and now not only is my grandmother and aunt gone, so is my mother. This vintage card would be one that I would send to either my grandmother or my aunt: 



RECIPE and SUPPLIES:
  • size A2 card with Recollection Chic background
  • image was from Create with TLC and chalked with gel pen accents
  • image and frame was cut using Darice Embossing Die Cut
  • pearls outlining the frame was from a previous swap
  • roses are from Recollections   
  • sentiment is from Create with TLC which cut using a Darice Embossing Die Cut chalked around the edges

I appreciate and love reading your comments - and hoping you leave me some bloggie love.
