Beautiful Mother


Made this for my beautiful mother in law and it couldn't be simpler.  Used Altenew's Beautiful LadyForest Glade, and Versafine Onyx inks. As my mom would say, what more do you want?  HA!

MOOD WHEN DONE = Happy! And now I turn my attention to making Christmas cards. Unless I run for the hills (and the hills are looking good), looks like I will be having heart surgery in August and I want to get my Christmas cards done before that. Priorities.

I've talked to several folks who have had this surgery and watched a million videos and gathered as much info as I can. Except for having to wear scrubs, I think I'm ready to operate on anyone!!!

  7. Love this in the pretty green, and what a nice, simple sentiment to go with it. That's huge news, Joan, about your heart surgery. I don't doubt you did thorough research. August is coming soon and I know you'll be glad to get that behind you. I also know your Christmas cards will inspire me to make a few CAS Christmas cards, as always. I'm going to be thinking about you a lot in the coming months.
