Hello my crafty friends,
Today's challenge at Craftitude Challenges is to use leaves. The image is from Milk Coffee and is called I love you mom.  My mom passed away only 7 weeks ago.  For Thanksgiving she and I liked the  turkey wings and the crispy skin over the breast. If she had Thanksgiving at her house she got the extra skin and if it was at my house I would get it. That is, if she didn't get to it before me while I was doing something else. LOL.  Mom's can be the strength of a family unit and the Darice Wood Design Embossing folder inspired me to use it as the base of the card.  Have I told you lately that I love my Silhouette Cameo. LOL. I love the way it cut the leaves.  I used a digital sentiment and frame and left a white edge to give it depth.  I also added some pop dots to a few of the leaves.  The bow was in my stash and I attached it with a glue dot.  Of course I used my Spectrum Noir Markers. I used IG1,2,4 for grandma's hair Skin color TN2,FS1,2 little girl the same. Her hair GB2,8, their outfit colors, LG2,IB2,CR3,PL1.GB5.

  1. I was sorry to read about your mum, mine died 5 years ago and I miss her all of the time. Like your mum, she was the center of the family and a good cook. I think it is a good thing to remember the good times and the things that made us laugh.
