Sentimental Sundays




Here is my weekly post for Sentimental Sundays. This week our challenge theme is For a Special Woman (Mother's Day). Simply make a card suitable for special lady or mom in your life. I never really like Mother's Day challenges, since my mom is no longer here, kind of makes me sad. But I thought this image would be nice to make a card for a mom friend of mine. It's from one of the monthly kits at A Day For Daisies.  And as always make sure you include a SENTIMENT!

And our sponsor this week is Di's Digi Downloads, they have some adorable images. Hope you will play along for a chance to win a prize from them.

Thanks so much for dropping by today. Make sure and pop over to the Sentimental Sundays blog and check out all the fun creations from the DT.

For my layout I've use the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #152.

What a sweet image. Reminds me of that special time of day when I put my little monkeys to bed :) Mother's Day is a bittersweet time for me as well but I'm grateful for all the women in my life who have been mini-moms to me. Big hugs my friend.

Love the embossed panel I love embossing on cards it great texture for the young/old and blind. I know what you mean about Mothers Day it's 11 years this year since mum past away and only feels like yesterday and I so wish she was here to see my boys.
