love you, Mom

Today I am sharing one of the first cards I ever made. I made it 3 or 4 years ago for my Mom. I remember I had seen Kristina Werner make one and I cased it. (Not that I knew what casing was at the time.)

I used some Hero Arts paper and white embossed a flower image on it. The 'love you' is hand written and I embossed the 'M's. I used a heart punched out of the paper for the 'o' in Mom. (My sister could never figure out it was supposed to be the 'o'. Mom thought that was so funny.) Then I simply added the ribbon and bow along the side and did some of Kristina's signature faux stitching with a white pen.

My Mom loved this card. Of course, she loved all the ones I made for her, but I think this first one was her favorite.

Today would be her 81st birthday, and yesterday my dad would have been 81. Love you and miss you both.
