Happy Birthday Mom


August 5th was always a pretty date in my mind because it was my moms birthday.
Today I honor her on what would have been her 80th birthday! She passed away when she wasn't much older than what I am now! It is strange to be where she was, she will be always in my mind a younger mature woman. I used the sketch from OCC SKETCH , and the theme of August from the ABC Challenge . I chose these colors and stamp set because my mom loved Sterling Roses and our Perfect Plum is almost the perfect color! I hope you like the card too! ~Enjoy!

Beautiful card Donna, your Mom would be so proud of the wonderful wife, mother, grandmother you have become. She would be especially proud, that everyone that meets you or talks to you, comes away a much better person then they were before knowing you. Love to you.

Oh Donna, your post realy touched me. First of all I love your card..but your comments about your mom made me feel a bit closer to you. My mom was born Aug. 31 and she too passed away too early. I love the month of August because it was her month. Be kind to yourself...let's both remember the wonderful things about our moms.
