A Mother's Heart

     A really quick post tonight since it's very late and I have to get to bed.

     I want to dedicate today's card to my mother-in-law, who's been gone several years now.  I loved her dearly, as much as my own mother, and since she survived my mother by many years, she became the only mom I had.  I miss them both.

     My MIL loved bird houses and she would have adored this card.  The image is by Beccy's Place.


I based my design on the sketch from Just Add Ink.


     Quick details about the card:  lace from my stash, ribbon from one of the ribbon sites, bow is one of those I make and keep in my stash, hearts are brads, and the 'dots' beside them are tiny green half-pearls.

I'm sure she would love it and I, too, love it. The lace backing that pretty bird house just adds that something special to it. Enjoy your day. Hope you got a good night's sleep.

Beccy said...

I agree NC, I'm sure your Mother-in-law would have loved the card you made in memory of her, it's obvious that you put a lot of time and thought into it. I love the mostly green colour scheme and I think the lace in the background is a lovely, feminine touch. It's truly a beautiful tribute.
Cheers,
Beccy
