Now onto my project:

My card is a typical A2 sized card, my yellow and white card stock is from Recollections, my background paper is from my scrap box.  My image was printed and cut at 4 inches from Lori's Garden using my imagine.  I added some bling from Hobby Lobby and my ribbon is from Michael's.  My awesome sentiment is from K Andrew Designs "Amazing You".  

I created this card for a very special lady in my life.....My MOM!  She is the most AMAZING woman I know.  She has been my biggest supporter, cheerleader and mentor.  My Mom is my very best friend.  I know most of you think well she is your mom that's what moms are suppose to do but our relationship is beyond any mother/daughter relationship out there.  My mom has always been my backbone.  Even through the darkest times of my life she reminded me there is a light at the end of the tunnel, just keep trying.  She has accomplished so much in her own life, she was a wife, mother and caregiver to not only my brother and me but everyone that ever needed her.  I have never known my mom to turn her back on anyone.  She consistently puts people before her no matter what may be going on in her own life.  A few years ago, my MOM had a stroke and I remember being so afraid for her, not only the thought of possibly losing her but wondering what would happen to this very active lady if in fact she didn't make a full recovery.  I couldn't imagine my Mom having any physical limitations.  By the grace of God she made a full recovery!  Since that date, I have made an extra effort to be sure my Mom knows how much I love and appreciate her.  I try to go on vacation with her every year and I ensure we do something she wants to do!  The love and respect I have for my MOTHER is beyond  words!  Mom, I know you are reading this and I want you to know, you are PERFECT, I couldn't ask for a better role model!  THANK YOU MOM FOR ALWAYS, ALWAYS BELIEVING IN ME EVEN WHEN I DIDN'T!  I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL!

  5. Such a beautiful card!!! Perfect way to honor your mother :)

  6. I feel exactly the same way about my precious Mother ... and she too had a devastating stroke just 2.5 years ago. She was essentially "dead", but prayers and faith and the skill of her doctors brought her fully back to us with no limitations. She and Dad are still alive, kickin' and together after 61 years ... amazing! That's the problem -- Dad won't let her out of his sight, so I can't travel with her, but I can honor her. Thank you for the reminder to do so, every day!
