From the Heart

It has been a few days since I have posted. It has been a rough few days and life events seem to be taking over. My Mother in Law has been fighting cancer over the last 4 years and that cancer is relentless!

We never do have enough time with our loved ones do we? Time passes and seems to get away from us. She is resting and we are trying to keep her comfortable. So in honor of my 2nd Mom, I decided to dedicate this Mother's Day Card to her.

A Vintage Journey is having a challenge currently with a them "through the looking glass". I created this ATC and decided to make it into a Mother's Day Card.

I decided to go with a butterfly theme and incorporated them throughout. I didn't lose focus on the challenge theme using clock faces as well as the Monocle which overlays the Mother and her children.

Hopefully I will be able to share this card with her. She is a card maker as well and actaully got me started in the crazy hobby! It is something we will always share in our hearts! 

I hope you like my card, it was made with LOVE inspired by a special lady!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Supplies I used:
