There is no question in my mind that I have the best mother-in-law on the planet! She is celebrating her 83rd birthday today and she truly gets even more magnificent with each passing day. I have no idea how it's possible, but she does. Bless. I often marvel at how she manages to keep the back of her blouse perfectly wrinkle/crease-free because I am certain that she's got enormous angel wings tucked gracefully underneath. I am just sure of it. Lucky for us, she lives with us and we are blessed each day with her kindness, her love and her sublime generosity of spirit. We are lucky ducks indeed.
I had a lovely time making this card for my mother-in-law. I know I always enjoy crafting, but this was something extra special because I knew this hug with a fold in the middle was destined for our wonderful earth angel. I delighted in using only Waltzingmouse Stamps (Say It With Style, Off Beat Backgrounds, and Very Vintage Christmas) for this card. The card's composition was based on this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge sketch which I knew my mother-in-law would adore. I love how encouraging she is with my papercrafts and seems to really appreciate what I make. I love how she looked at the card as if it was the greatest thing she'd ever seen (don't worry, I know it's not, but I adore how unwaiveringly supportive she is for those she loves). I am so moved and inspired by her in every way and am so grateful that she is in our lives.
Here's a full view of the card and the WMSC sketch:
Thank you so much for allowing me to share with you just another of my cherished blessings. Have an extraordinary day!
