My Favorite Pass Time

Okay, I LOVE to create cards.  Sometimes I CASE a card, sometimes my little ol' brain will come up with something by itself!  *I really love that when it happens.*  I enjoy sending out cards and letting someone know that I am thinking of them.  In an age of technology it seems that snail mail is used only for receiving junk mail and bills.  Gone, almost, are the days of receiving a card or letter from a friend/family.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoy my notes in my email box, and sweet notes left on my blog.  But sometimes it is nice to have a piece of mail to hold, read, and look at. 

I recently made a set of baby shower announcements.  Mom-to-be had an idea of the theme, but not an announcement.  So she went to her favorite site--Pinterest-- and started searching.  Below is the announcement we came up with.  This is not an original idea of mine, but I changed it up with texture, left off a couple of things and changed color for Mom.  She was pleased with the results!

All cardstock, ink, stamped image, and texture are
from Stampin' Up! (my favorite go to company
to supply my habit!)

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!
