My Mother

My mother, Rose Rizzo, was wonderful  She was everything a good mother should be.  She always took care of my father, my brother and me and always put us first.  She loved us very much and always told us so.  When I was a child she would set up paper and crayons and draw animals and nature so I could learn how to draw and color, always giving me praise for my creations.  She would walk around the house singing and give me a hug.  Everyone loved Rosey, we always had relatives and friends over and of course my beautiful, Italian mother would feed everyone.  She was a beautiful woman and I miss her terribly. xoxo

Hi City Crafters!  Our challenge at City Crafter is birds.  I just love the birds and sentiment on my card, so funny, always makes me laugh.  The stamp set is from WPlus9 called Happy Birds.

So happy you stopped by today :)

Enjoy the little things

The sentiment on my card is something that's so good to remember; like pretty flowers in the Springtime.  I made my card for this week's photo inspiration challenge at Just Us Girls (see the photo below).

The flower stamps is by Penny Black and the sentiment is from Altenew.  I knew I would use these big poppies the minute I saw the challenge photo; poppies are my favorite flower.

Thank you for stopping by today and a beautiful Spring day it is here on the front range :)

Happy Birthday Columbines

Columbines are the Colorado state flower, a pretty flower they are.  I put purple columbines on this happy birthday card, added a little purple stickles and a few white gel pen dots to the centers to complete the flowers.  

I am submitting this card to this week's challenge at the Muse Card Club; this week's muse is a pretty card by Ishani (see below).  I was inspired by the flowers and layout on Ishani's card (although my layout is quite different).

So happy you stopped by today and a lovely Spring day it is :)
