Hi hope you had a great weekend,
I'd like to say a BIG HELLO to 3 lovely new followers, Dorothy, Diane and Fluffnstuff, thank you so much for joining us!!
The challenge over at Isabella's Sketchbook is a creation to honor mothers everywhere using one of Isabella's digi images.
They are gorgeous images and well worth a visit, and to see the DT creations, which are amazing.
This is my card in honor of our mum!!
Every-body-art ~ Pastel colours
Dare you to digi stamp ~ anything goes
Little red waggon ~ pink and green
Friday sketchers ~ sketch
When I saw the digi image of the embroidery I new it was just right for my mum.
Sadly she's not with us but memories of her with my girls sat on the arm of her chair, teaching them how to sew are like yesterday.
My sister and I have to thank her for our interest in all things creative. She was so talented, emboidery, crochet, knitting, ribbon emboidery, decoupage and in later life she even mastered lace making.
She attended a center for the elderly and enjoyed basket weaving. When anyone new started and needed to be shown how to finish off the weaving, they would say " see Ivy she'll show you".
We all have stools, a baby chair and a table that she made, in our homes.
“The heart has its own memory,
Like the mind,
And in it are enshrined
The precious keepsakes”
You have given me many heartfelt
Memories and I thank you!
I used the fabulous sketch from Friday Sketchers. To celebrate their 2nd anniversary they're having an amazing blog hop, check it out!!
