Mother's Day

Happy Thursday stampers, scrappers & crafters!
Hope your week is winding down nicely and many of you have a four day holiday weekend!
I had this nice paper for awhile and I thought I would make a simple card with it for Mother's Day. I wanted the paper to be the main focal point as it is so nice! My Mom will be 90 in October, and though she is doing amazing, her eyes are getting to be a bit of a problem. The condition is degenerative in elders, and in involved the back portion of the eye, eventually she won't see much. For now, she is still able to see ,and even read a bit at night when the light is bright on the pages of a book with her glasses. Keeping all of this in mind, I think it is best to use bright colors and keep Mom's cards simple.
CS-Shimmer green moss-Bazzill, Bashful Blue-SU!, Red-Bazzill,DP-
Stamps- SU! mini flower (ink-Real Red SU! - Happy Mother's Day-Inkadinkado

Time to clean house a bit and do the wood furniture polish bit, so that in a half hour it will look as though I haven't done it forever! That's country living for ya! Well, I know its clean, and it smells yummy lemon!
Have a wonderful day, thanks for stopping by, Deb

What a nice card to give it your MOM. I'm sorry to hear about your Mom's eyes, I'm sure we'll all have to go through that as we age. I wish her the best of luck. Happy Easter to you & your family.
