One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

CASology: MOM

I can hardly believe it has been 9 years since my Mom left this world to enter eternal life.
I am happy for her, but can't help but be sad for me...I miss her.
My church has a Women's Luncheon always the Saturday before Mother's celebrate all women...any age!
I sell my cards that day and give back to the church.
This is one of the cards I will sell, no mother, no mother-in-law to give it to...
stamps & dies:  Altenew: Persian Motifs, PTI: Happy Hydrangea (sentiment)
distress ink for background
PPP clear sequins
Go out and make it a great day friends!

Heart Hugs, friends!

No one can ever replace the love of a mom.
