I Love my Mom

I made a special card for my Mom for Mother's Day.
I credit my mother for my love of all things crafty.  My Mom can do just about anything and I have always admired her for that!  No joke- she can do almost everything, and if there happens to be  something that she doesn't know how to do- she takes it as an opportunity to learn something new.
My Mother is a phenomenal seamstress- she is "sew" fabulous!  This is one quality that I never truly appreciated about her when I was young.  I wish I had learned this skill when she tried to teach me years ago.  She has a sewing machine that she wants to give me- so I may use it as an opportunity to learn something new.  :)

I used the Nifty Fifties cartridge for the image and DCWV  "All About Girls" stack for the background paper.

I am submitting this to Getting Kricky With K Andrews Simply Sunday Challenge: Sew Fabulous.

Thanks for stopping by!
