Ahhh!  After cleaning the house and catching up on mountains of laundry, I was able to sit down and make a couple of cards.  I made one for Son #2, whose birthday is the fourth of this month.  I know I can show the card here safely because he never checks my blog!

I really had fun doing this card.  I used the brayering technnique I learned at
 Michelle Zindorf's workshop.  Daughter-in-law #2 liked it and wanted to make Son #2 a card with Granddaughter #1's foot print.

This was the first time she has brayered and I think she did a great job!  I did the embossing of the feet and set up the masking for the brayering.  Even though we I did not get the foot inked all the way around, I think it gave it the look of "foam" from the water!

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!
