Welcome to another Island Hopping Blog Hop! This will be a quick hop between 2 islands… me on Maui and my friend, Robin on the Big Island. Today we’ll each be making a card for Mother’s Day.
My card combines the gorgeous Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper and an older stamp set called Tea Together. It has a beautiful sentiment about the bond between a mother and daughter. I don’t tell my mom often enough how much she means to me. We’ve been blessed with a close relationship and have always enjoyed each other’s company so much!
Today I’ve been thinking about how proud I am of my mother! She’s always been very pretty and very independent and free thinking (especially for a preacher’s wife!). She always encourages and supports me. Unconditional love. Special moments pop into my mind like her singing solos for church and one time reciting a poem (“Poems are made by fools like me, but only God can make a tree”). I think I’ll share all this with her in my card.
Back to my card. You really need these Stitched So Sweetly Dies!! I also want to mention that the Peaceful Poppies Elements were really fun to watercolor!
Time to head over to the island of Hawaii to see what Robin has made!!Be sure to use this month's Hostess Code: BH9SMSJ7
