Have A Question On How I Did Something? PLEASE READ!

I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

Love You Much

Good Morning Everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoy your visit and for those that visit regularly without leaving a comment, I'd really love to hear from you, and what you think of my blog. For those that visit and leave comments faithfully, thank you so much. Your comments are a great source of inspiration to me.
Each year, my aunt comes to Florida to spend the winters with my mom in St. Pete which is about an hour and a half away. Since my dad passed away almost 3 years ago, my mom's health has declined and has had several back and shoulder surgeries and is to the point that she really doesn't need to be alone. My aunt decided that she would take my mom back to Ohio with her when she went home last month. She didn't want to go but we all convinced her it was the right thing to do. Here is a card that I made for her to keep on her dresser. The image is so me...when I was growing up (and even now) I never had shoes on my feet. Even in the heart of winter, in the snow belt of Ohio, I either wore moccasins or tennis shoes. I'm hoping she will think of me every time she looks at it and know just how much I love her. It's an easel card that I downsized so it won't take up a lot of room---

Here is the recipe---
Card Size: Mini Easel Card-measures 4"x4" closed
Prisma Markers
Stamps/Image: Magnolia
Stamp/Sentiment: Stampin' Up
Cuttlebug: Heart Die
Punch: Stampin' Up Scallop Trim Border/Corner, Nellie Snellen Floral Set
Accessories: Ribbon, Flat Back Pearls, Foam Pop Dots
That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed you visit and will be back again tomorrow. I won't get a chance to visit my favorite blogs this morning but I'll be sure to visit you this afternoon or tonight to see what you've been up to. Til then enjoy your day...I will see you when I see you!

Oh Kelly, I know just what you mean about them being alone. I'm sure when she receives this card she will think of you, and your design is just fabulous girlfriend. My Mom is 83 yrs young, but I still worry about her being alone. I'm blessed to have siblings who lives close to her. What an adorable card, love it!

Kelly, we must be kindred spirits! I never wore shoes either growing up in Michigan. I would run out to get the mail in my bare feet. What a great memory for you and your Mom. She will love the card. Thanks for being such an inspiration to me. Your comments on my blog mean a lot to me. Thanks!

Kelly, how sweet this is! Your Mom is sure to love this and treasure it. I can't believe you're from Ohio, too....My husband was born there and I grew up there most of my life...another small world we share.
