Hello friends. I was unable to share the card I was making for challenge #64 at Tammy's Scrapin' Corner, because of unforeseen circumstances. Last week's theme was Vintage.
The wonderful paper is from the UK called Pion Design.
I'm loving the Fran' tage embossing enamel and sprinkled some on the corners and over the flowers and awesome chipboard embellishments.
I was working on this card just before my Mother passed away last Monday, May 27th.
Her name was Gail, and she would have been 91 this month.
She had recently fallen and broke her hip. She was a week in the hospital until her body started to shut down. I'm thankful that she didn't suffer but passed away peacefully with family around her.
She told us she had a long, good life and that she was ready and wanting to go home to the Lord.
I'm the baby of the family and as I watched her age over the years I realized that getting old is not for the feeble. Her strength shone through her heart every day.
My mom had 10 children, 48 grandchildren, 63 great grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren on the way. She would have been 91 on June 21st. She taught me how to be loving, nurturing, kind, and strong, as that's how she was. She lived a life of service and sacrifice...always thinking of her ever growing family, and others, before herself. I hope to be more like her everyday. Her last words were,"Thank you".
I would have loved to have given this vintage mermaid card to her for her 91st birthday.
Here's a picture of me and my mom, and my three daughters at her 90th Birthday party last year.
