Wonder and think...CR84FN54 53

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, May 12, 2012 @ 8:55 PM | , , , ,

I would like to wish all who celebrate, a VERY Happy Mother's Day! This day always makes me a little sad because my Mom passed away nearly 10 years ago already. Not a day goes by that I don't miss her. I thankful for my wonderful, loving MIL whom I speak with several times a week, just wished she lived closer or visited more often. 


It's time for a new CR84FN Color Challenge! Thanks to all who joined along last week ~ so many pretty projects in the gallery! For the next two weeks we will be playing with the interesting color combo shown below:
I made a wall hanging for my dear sister Tina thanking her for being a GREAT Mom to my 4 legged fur babies, Gretchen and Griffin and a dear friend to me :) She loves them as much as I do therefore, I am able to travel out of town and not worry about their well being.
The sweet image and sentiment are from the Artistic Outpost Think & Wonder stamp set. Thanks to my dear blogging friends Suzanne Czocek and Lisa Somerville for introducing me to these beautiful images!
I stamped the sweet girl image, cut using a Spellbinders Labels Twelve then added a frame of shimmery silver Stickles.
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge:
