Greetings! Today I have a very special card to share with you. This is the card I made for this challenge but more importantly I wanted to send my Mom a hug! She only lives about 1/4 of a mile away and we see each other almost every day. I know, I am blessed in that alone. But there's never enough ways to say I love you or give a hug to someone so special. My Mom has been there for me so many times when she needed a hug herself. When I was diagnosed with this eye disease and told I couldn't drive any more, she also became my driver. It's a full time job "driving Miss Vicki"! Never once has she complained or said she couldn't help. I owe her so much more than a card full of hugs can say.
She loves vintage things and when I found this vintage post card, I immediately thought of her. I made four copies of the card and proceeded to cut up the image to make the 3 D layers. Each layer is adhered with glue dots. I mounted the layers onto card stock which I had faux woodgrained in green ink. Then I added the border which was punched with a Fiskars border punch. I then adhered all this to a kraft card base. The card is very sturdy and can be displayed as a picture. As I had hoped, she loves it!
I use the phrase Bountiful Blessings every day and I truly have many. But none so precious as the blessings I receive from my Mama. I love you, Mama!
I hope you enjoyed your visit today and you will take the time to send a hug to someone special to you. It is one of the little things we do that means the world to someone who needs it!
Blessings to you,
