Thank You Cards for Mom


I finally got back to stamping today after a few long and emotional weeks. My Mom passed away 10 days ago from complications of Alzheimer's Disease. I'm fortunate to have helped care for her a couple days a week and cherish all the time we had together. My heart goes out to all caregivers out there! And can't say enough thank you's to nurses, aides, doctors, Hospice and more that helped take care of Mom and our family.
 
Here's just the beginning of many thank you cards we need to send to our wonderful families, friends, co-workers and more. We have such a great support system and are so very thankful for everyone.

I used the Freshly Made Sketch#211 here. And paired that with the Splitcoast Color Challenge#555 here. The colors to use are Soft Suede, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry. I think it's a little sign from Mom in heaven that she's looking over me because purple was her favorite color! Love you Mom!



Here's my recipe:

Stamps: Crazy About You and Flower Shop
Papers: WW, Rich Razzleberry, Brights Color Collection DSP Stack
Inks: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Soft Suede
Accessories: Pansy Punch, 2 inch Circle punch, Stampin dimensionals

Hi Jennie. I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. I still miss mine and it's been almost ten years.
I love your card! You used some of my favorite colors. Gorgeous!
