A Picture of My Mom



The picture on this card is of my Mom circa 1965. She is about 30 in the picture, and she is a knockout sitting on the beach in Florida with the wind in her hair. I have always thought she looked like a movie star in this picture. I have to tell you that she is my hero. She has faced some giant hardships in life, yet she still smiles just like she is smiling in this picture. I have been so blessed to have her as my Mom. I know it isn't Mother's Day but I woke up thinking of her and just sat down and made this card.

Hugz!!!

  4. Yes your Mom does look like a (beautiful) movie star. Your card just added to her beauty. I love how you framed her picture with your precious flowers and your colors are soft and sweet, just like your Mom. I'm sure your Mom will be very honored to receive such a loving card from her daughter. Outstanding job on this one. Enjoy your weekend.
