Mom, Forever my friend


Hello happy Campers! This is a day I have waiting for because in 4 hours we will be on a plane to our time share in Florida! I am so looking forward to this vacation. This is the first vacation in years where it will only be DH and me. . Usually we have grandchildren, parents, kids, dogs but not this time and we so need a vacation! 

My card today is using an Elisabeth Bell rubber stamp called Happy Mail Peeker. . EB is one of my all time favorite stamp artists and I love this cutie. My mom is 86 and lives 2000 miles away in Arizona. I miss her dearly and I know one of the things her and my father look forward to is mail:) My mom has been my best friend all of my life and I couldn't have asked for a better friend or mother. Thanks MOM!

Colleen, your mom will love this! It is just the sweetest card! Love the die cuts, and pretty colors; especially love your coloring!
Have a wonderful vacation in Florida! You know, I lived in Georgia for 5-1/2 years, and never did get down to Florida. Crazy, huh? (Of course, hubby was in the Army then, and we were flat broke! Trips were kind of out of the question!) Anyway, enjoy your time away! :^)
Hugs,
Penny

I'm so glad you stopped by. It has been a long time for me also. First I have to say your babies look just awesome in their pictures. They are adorable. I just love your Elisabeth Bell card I love her stamps and images and you did an amazing job with her love your colors and of course your coloring. This is so wonderful that you still have your Mom and you need to take every chance you get to be in her life and show her how much you love her. I'm so glad you have the Cameo and you love it... I did order it but I really debated it you know how it is after a while we have so much and I did not want to get something I really did not need. I have heard so many wonderful things about it I just could not help myself plus my hands do not work as good as they use to with my arthritis so why not. So I might need some help on how to use it and I love the article in the magazine and it would be nice if you do some more articles. I know I would like that. Have a super time in Florida and get some rest and have some FUN!!!
Hugs

Hi Colleen, welcome back my friend... I was missing you as well. Funny how blogland means so much to us. We may not see each other yet bring so much joy to each other.
Thanks for the warm comments - they warmed up my heart. And I am sure your lovely mum will adore this card no end, just as much you adore her. How lucky to have a beautiful relationship with your mum - one of the most fulfilling ones on the face of this earth.
Love and hugs always my friend,
Monica
