For you Mum

Hi there,

Today is a sad day for me. It's 8 years today since my Mum passed away, so we're off back to our home town to put some flowers on her grave. This card reminds me of my childhood and the fields that we use to walk in when I was young. My Mum loved to walk and use to walk a lot in her later years to keep fit. Of course, when I was younger, we walked everywhere as we didn't have a car. When I think of the distance we used to walk in those days compared to how far I walk nowadays, I'm ashamed!!

Anyway, this card is from the 'A Walk in the Countryside' Cd Rom from Creative Crafting World, formerly Cupcakecrafting. It is an 8x8 card.

I printed some plain backing paper from the cd and matted this onto silver mirri. I then printed a patterned paper and made two rectangular pieces and matted these onto silver mirri also. I took one of the framed images and fixed using 3D foam pads so that it stood proud of the card.

I took a ribbon embellishment and three flower embellishments from the cd. I placed card candy in the centre of each of the flowers and one in each corner of the card.

Sadly, my Mum never saw any of my cards that I make as I started making them after she passed away. I think she would like this, she liked the colour purple. Miss you Mum.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment.

Take care.
