Silhouettes of the Past:
Happy Birthday, Mom!

For Memorial Day both of my sisters posted a card for our mother. So I decided to follow. I couldn't miss the opportunity to post a comment about my mother. Check my sisters blogs for their cards. Sweetberry Designs and Mulberry Station.

I am using the AMYRS3 Sketch for the week.

I chose the SU Pocket Silhouette stamp because it reminds me of my mother's garden. She always had a beautiful yard and flower garden. I loved walking through her garden with her and watching the butterflies come to her flowers. She always worked so hard. She was up at 5 a.m. doing her work so that she could enjoy the rest of the day with her family whether is was working on another project or spending an afternoon shopping with us. I loved to shop with her because she always found the best deals.

The lace doily punch reminds me of all the sewing my mother used to do. She would stay up late at night making matching dresses for her three girls. It was so fun to wake up in the morning and have a new dress for Easter or Christmas.

I chose the polka dot paper and ribbon because Mom loved polka dots. I will always remember her in her darling black dress with white polka dots. She looked so beautiful in that dress. She was very fashion conscious and always wore the most adorable clothes.

Mom's birthday is June 2. If she were still living, she would be 87. This card is a tribute to her for all that she did for our family. We love and miss you, Mom.

Thank you, Mom, for all the beautiful silhouettes of the past.
