You Are Never Alone

Happy Sunday !

I'm just popping in today with a card I recently made
to { hopefully } bring a smile to my mom.
I recently shared that she was diagnosed with lung cancer
and while she is going through treatment, I want to
make sure she knows how much I love her
and admire her strength.
She does read my blog from time to time, so hopefully
she will not 'peek in' for a few days so I can
make sure this card gets to her : )

 My mom has loved gardening since I was in high school.
She turned most of our backyard into the most
beautiful flower garden over 30 years ago and to this day, still has
the most beautiful blooms from Spring to Fall around
her entire condo.
I recently picked up these fabby vellum pages by Heidi Grace
and was so anxious to use them.
I used my Lacey Circle die from Spellbinders to create the frame
and placed it on top of yellow cardstock so the design
would stand out more.
I also created the base using the Swiss Dot EF from Cuttlebug.

The sentiment is from a beautiful set called 'Inspired by Audrey'
designed by Karen Baker for The Craft's Meow.

I simply embellished the flowers & umbrella with pearls & gems.

It's important she knows this sentiment is true and I hope
she enjoys it once she receives it.
Don't forget. . .
There's a terrific color challenge going on over at

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

I'll be back on Monday with a very special event
with The Twinery and Imaginisce !
