Notebook and Cards

I have a ladies conference to go to Friday and Saturday.  I decided to make a notebook and a dozen cards, six of each, for the speaker. 

The cards were made using Very Vanilla, from Stampin' Up!, as the card base.  The designer paper is from K & Company.  The clock face, from Sense of Time retired set, was stamped on Very Vanilla with Soft Suede ink, with the vine from Vintage Vogue. I layered it on Early Espresso cardstock that was cut using the the large scallop die cut.(all SU! product) The papers were sponged with Soft Suede ink.  The first card I used "friend" from You're a Gem.(SU!) The second card I use the punch Petite Pennants Builder, (SU!) but cut the scallop off the large pennant.  I also cut the 'second hand' round face out and popped it up.

For the notebook I used a compostion notebook with First Edition Specialty designer paper, (SU!) on top of retired cardstock from SU! I then used designer paper from K & Company for "wallpaper".
The clock face was stamped in Soft Suede ink on Fun Foam that was heated.  I layered it on Early Espresso.  I distressed the papers and sponged with Soft Suede ink.  I printed the conference theme on V. Vanilla and layered on E. Espresso, using the Decorative Label punch from SU!  {the brads are from SU! also}

{The notebook was suppose to look like torn wallpaper, but the family said they liked the "torn look of the notebook on the notebook".  I guess I did not get the look I was going for.  I saw a card on Splitcoast Stampers that gave me the idea, but do not remember who's card it belong to...sorry!}

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!
