Happy Mother's day - new challenge



This is a card I made for the Isabella's sketchbook challenge. Heard about it from Sharon a SA blogging friend who is on the DT, Thanks for the freebie on their blog, which enabled me to enter.
Cardstock white, onto this I matted a DP from the Funky Hand "Dreams come true" selection. I cut the image with a nestability, matted onto s another lilac nestie.
The digi image was coloured with twinkling H2o's
Organza ribbon, and some pearls to finish off.
Computer generated sentiment.

I made this card for my Mother-in-law. A dear lady who will be 98 in July. She is still in perfect health, just having a problem with her memory. She lives in her own cottage in a retirement village, still plays piano daily, does all her own cooking and baking. Usually will have home baked cookies, or something with coffee. Even bakes once a month for a fund raising cake sale at her village. Last week walked 3km for a fundraiser to extend their facilities at the village. Quite a remarkable lady.

I wish all Mother's a wonderful day and for those of us who aren't lucky enough to have mothers around or have children in far away countries, hope you have a lovely day. Not to forget all those who aren't able to be Mom's or have lost children wishing you a peaceful day with much love.
See you soon again.

Oh Ursula, your card is absolutely stunning. I love the design, the colouring, that fab nestie and your own sentiment. I am sure your dear MiL will love it. She sounds like a spunky lady... how wonderful for her to still be so active at that age. What a blessing. Hope you're having a wonderful Mother's Day. Thanks for joining in the FUN at Isabella's Sketchbook. Hope to see you back again next week. Hugs Sharon x
