To let you know....

A couple of weeks back, my bestie had the anniversary of her beautiful mother's passing. Having lost my own mother some 17 years ago (age 46) we share the bond of losing these beautiful people to breast cancer. To let her know that she was being thought of and that the memories of those close to us should be held close to our hearts, I sort inspiration from this card here on SCS. This is what I came up with....

I did not wish for this card to be morbid or sad, so I used "cherish" from the Warm Words Set.

To get the background, I sponged the ink onto the stamp which gives a beautiful, soft effect, a perfect reflection of my beatie's Mums nature and manner.

To finish it off I did something I have not yet done on any card I have made, which is stamped on the inside of it. I thought it was appropriate.

Best thing of all is that when she received it, it made her smile. For me, that is the biggest reward of all.

Stuff used:
CS: (SU) Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red
Ink: (SU) Riding Hood Red, Handsome Hunter
Stamps: (SU) A Rose Is A Rose, En Francais BGS, Warm Words, Life Definitions
Other Bits: SU Dimensionals
