For Mom

Today, my post is dedicated to my Mom!
She often checks my blog (which is why I couldn't post this earlier today before I could give her this card)......... so here's to you, Mom!

Happy Mother's Day!

This is the card I created for Mom.

I chose a sewing theme for Mom's card because she loves to sew. For many years, she owned and operated a fabric store. She sold sewing machines, gave classes and designed quilts. Before that, she sewed lots of clothes for my sisters & me. I remember many times that she stayed up late to make a new outfit for me because there was some special occasion that I thought I needed something new. She taught me to sew. She helped me alter patterns to create more unique styles. I learned to value quality fabric. I learned about color combinations. I learned to appreciate good craftsmanship after sewing my own clothes. She encouraged my creativity. I later learned to apply a lot of what I learned from sewing to other creative crafts. For all that you taught me and much, much more........Thank you, Mom! You're the best!

I hope each and everyone of you had a wonderful day!
