My Mother, My Mentor

Good morning and thanks for stopping by. Today I only have my Isabella's DT post. I am getting ready to go on vacation and wasn't able to complete the sample for the Creative Inspirations challenge but I hope you will stop by and see what the rest of the team has to inspire you.

This week at Isabella's Sketchbook, the challenge is to make a Mother's Day card. Isabella has so many beautiful images in her store that would make wonderful Mother's Day cards, but I have had my eye on this one since I first saw it. Isn't it precious? And while I was surfing the daily challenges, I found that Stamp it Crazy blog has a Mother's Day challenge this week that requires you to include a sentiment about what you love most about your mother. I knew immediately the angle I was going to take. I have always admired and looked up to my mother for the leadership she showed when I was growing up. She was a pilar of our church, always involved in so many ministries and with the youth. She taught me to care about others and to be a champion for them. I have always wanted to emulate her and be a role model for my children, hence the sentiment that I made up on my computer.

The Details: Little Mother image from Isabella's Sketchbook, colored with Copics, DP from Digtal Delights and printed on my home printer, Blush Blossom and Whisper White CS, Flourishes white CS for the main image for coloring with Copics, the chipboard letters were cut with a Spellbinders alphabet, chuhky glitter from Jo-Ann, Cuttlebug lattice and vine dies, Cuttlebug heart die, Spellbinders die for the main image, Creamy Caramel ink for sponge distressing. I made the little pink roses out of crepe paper.

Please take a few minutes stop by Isabella's Challenge blog to see the rest of the teams' samples. I can promise you it will be worth your time. I had a peek at the samples before they were published and I was just blown away by the talent on this team. I hope to see your entry into our challenge this week!

Thanks a million for stopping by this morning. I love to hear from my readers so please leave me a comment.

Blessings & hugs,
