K.I.S.S.: Keep it sweet (and) simple...

Mo's challenge for this week is to create a card using white or cream color cardstock, ribbon and that is about it.  I decided to use a digi from Mo's book "Kitchen Dance."  I love this book and currently my sister's first graders are reading it as part of their lesson plan on family.  The book is an excellent way to teach kids about what a family really is all about.

I used shades of purple Copic markers, brick beige, maroon and added red on the mother's lips and nails.  I added a sentiment that I wrote which says, "A mother's love fills your darkest moments with joy."  I truly believe this and although I am not a mother I have the world greatest mother as confirmation.

I added a pale purple polk-a-dot ribbon beneathe the score line I did with my Scor-Pal.  Out of all the cards that I have created, this one means the most to me, because I truly believe that a mother's love is a gift that God has given her to care for her children. 

I hope that you enjoy this card as much as I did creating it.  Although it is simple, I believe that it's message is powerful.

Thanks for visiting...


There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity.
