If Mams were flowers.......

I know we all love our Mams to bits but I love telling my Mam as often as I can - I do this by sending her cards that express how I feel as she lives 600 miles north of us. It is very hard for both of us being apart but it is now coming up to the timeof the year that she hates - my Dad passed away on Nov 16th 2000 - and she still finds this time very hard. Becasue it will be 10 yearrs this year I am going up to spend a week with her but meanwhile am sending this card too.

It is for 3 challenges -
Mami Doodles Sketch;
Digistamp Boutique and
Crafty Cardmakers Clean and Simples.

Using MamiDoodles sketch, I stamped the DSB image and coloured with Promarkers then mounted it on green card and added flowers and sentiment.
Freebie image form DSB coloured with PMs~
Flower ~ Blossom, Dusky Rose & Coral;
Vase ~ Cinnamon, Caramel & Sandstone;
Leaves ~ Meadow Green, Apple & Forest Green.
Flowers from stash and sentiment made on PC using Scriptina Font.


  1. How lovely Sheila, you will have a lovely time with mum, she obviously needs you at this time of year. I made my mum a mothers day card this year and the sentiment i chose said:
    To the whole world you are just one person, but to one peoson you are the world! Love that! So did she.
