"Mom" Greetings

After just returning from a trip to Arizona where we visited my mom and brothers I wanted to send a quick "Hello, Mom" note. My mom has Alzheimer's and doesn't remember much of daily life, just details of her growing-up years. But she does like cards and pictures, which she sets out on display and is reminded of people and events...sometimes. Even  if she can't remember who sent her a card, I want her to remember she is loved.


Ingredients used:
Card stock- solids from my stash & patterned are Authentique "Winter"
Stamps- Stampin Up "Mom" & "Hello", Sweet Stamps "Riches in Glory", Simon Says Stamp! "Miracles"
Dies- Spellbinders "Labels15", "Pendants Fleur de Lis", & "Tudor Rose Card Front"; TH/Sizzix "Tattered Flower Garland"
Embellisments- Ranger Liquid Pearls "Platinum", Karen Foster "Charcoal" twine
