Encouragement.....

Happy Tuesday to you!  Hope you had a good weekend!  We picked up my parents from the airport on Sunday night so they could come back 'home' for the holidays.  I had made this card for my mom and had it waiting at their house to give her some encouragement on her recent weight loss.  She told me today she's lost 20lbs, which is awesome and I know she'll keep trying to lose some more!


I used my Stamping Bella image and colored with prisma pencils. I matched up some American Crafts paper and used the December Sketch For You To Try.   I finished it off with a MFT sentiment and some buttons!

Here's the sketch if you want to play along :)


Thanks for your visit!

What a perfect card for your mom... and what a thoughtful daughter she has.

The image is so cool and the papers unusual. Great colouring.

Maria, this is a great card and just wonderful for your mom! She should be SO PROUD of herself!! At our age (actually I always say - in our age group (sounds better LOL) - it's really an accomplishment to lose weight. The older we get the harder it is to do! Tell her congrats and so glad they're going to spending the holidays with you.
