Crafters of Faith: Mother's Day :)



Hi there, friends!  Today is the Crafters of Faith blogging group monthly post and this month our hostess is Olga!  She asked us to create a card with a Mother's Day theme and these requirements:  Use at least one die, 5 x 7 in size and create an envelope!  Although my card is a 5.5 x 5.5, the rest of it is right on with the challenge :)  


For my card set, I originally planned to make a more traditional card with a scripture.  But I really wanted to continue my "Take it off the Shelf in 2012" mantra so I pulled out my SU! set that I've had since it was released :)  I've only inked up the little boy so it was fun to create this whimsical card using the darling little girl stamp.  My mum - born and raised in England - loves yellow and LOVES flowers, so I think she will smile when she sees this non-traditional card (and they actually celebrate Mum's day in March in England) :)










And that's it for me - still trying to catch my breath, find my way, refresh my soul :) I'm behind in crafting - behind in all areas other than prayer and faith :)  The kids have had me running to and fro while dh rested most of the weekend - errands and 'rides' he normally would do fell to me - including driving in the rain that did not stop ALL DAY today!  Each day gets a little better, a little easier and that's just all part of the journey :)


Please be sure to stop by the other Crafters of Faith - you can find them linked in my sidebar and see what they have created with this fun theme from Olga! x0x0


Big hugs,

Bigger Blessings!
