Celebrating Mom's ~ Card 4

Good Morning :)

Just a quick note about this card..

The making of this card was actually intended for a friend of mine. I plan on putting a really nice verse inside but I haven't written it out yet. I will be using vellum to print out on and attaching it to the inside loosely.

This woman who inspired this card is my personal inspiration with creativity and motherhood. She makes me laugh and comforts me when I'm feeling down, at a loss or just down right fed up with being mom. Honestly, when I feel like I lost my identity as a person/ woman/wife because I have to play the mom, warden, the cook, the cleaners, and everything else she will be the one to to put a smile on my face, calm my nerves and my stress starts to disintegrates and I start feeling like myself again...when we talk on the phone or see each other my spirits lift instantly...I am really hoping she doesn't check my blog today or at least until Mother's Day...lol...I haven't been able to express my gratitude the way I've wanted to and I thought of making her something personal from me would be perfect for Mother's Day as she too is a mother of two grown children. So with that being said I hope you all like the card :) I had to use ribbon on this one :)

Have a nice day all! :)
