Turned in my Gallery Idol card

Here it is. Hubby doesn't like it but I really do. It's not 'his' style. It does encompass a lot of what my momma is though, so I wanted to make sure that stood out.

-Flower: She loves gardening
-Bird: Loved bird watching and knows more about them than I could ever know!
-Sparkles(round glitter): I swear the woman has something sparkly on her clothes at all times! Whether it's beads, glitter, or shiny thread. My kids call her Grandma Sparkle.
-Faux Stitches : In the evening after dinner mom would always pull out the needle and
thread to sew up dad's jeans or my sister's sweatshirts, and even my barbie's clothes.

  • PAPER: SEI patterned paper, Unknown red CS
  • STAMPS: Rhonna Farrer Swirls stamp set
  • INK: Stazon Jet Black
  • OTHER: JoAnn's Craft Essentials chipboard letter, blue acrylic paint, JoAnn's Chipboard pack bird, ric rac, push pin, white Souffle gel pen, black brad, flower from stem, round glitter, pop dots
Final size is 4x8.

If you like it, please make your vote count, or even if it's not mine, just take a second (really, it only takes a second, no need to get a user name or anything) and you never know, your one vote could put someone through to the next round!!! The voting will begin at 2:00pm EST tomorrow and will go till Thursday at 2:00pm EST.

It's beautiful, Heidi, and even more so knowing what a tribute it is to your mom. I would be blessed to have my daughters grow up with such wonderful, rich memories of their old mom!

What do men know??? I think it is a wonderful tribute to your mom...I will be voting!

Anne Marie said...

Wow! I just checked out the other cards and voted for yours. At the risk of sounding like a suck-up (LOL!), yours really is the nicest, by far. Yours and the one shaped like the little house are the only two I'd give my own mother. I can't wait to hear if you make it to the next round!
