Today would have been my Mom's 88th Birthday. She shared many birthdays with mother's day. It has been almost 10 years since she passed from ovarian cancer. Sometimes it seems forever and sometimes it seems like just a few years. If you have lost someone in your life you know how the grief comes and goes like waves on the ocean.
I thought this saying was so perfect and if she was here I would give her this card.
Today I choose some bright bold colors to create my card. I was inspired by the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8" Reversible Ribbon don't wait too long to stock up on this ribbon before it is gone!
Today's sketch marks well over the halfway through our 52 weeks of Sunday Sketches. Sketches or sometimes called card templates are the perfect starting point for your creative day.
