Motherhood


Do you think the Motherhood sentiment from Creative Clear Stamps is my favorite? I seem to be drawn to it and use it all of the time....

The sketch for the card came from Stamping Sisters for Christ Challenge and I just loved the circle for a focal sentiment and of course was just drawn to this Motherhood sentiment. I used the Basic Grey June Bug designer paper with Real Red and Pink Pirouette cardstock. I added a couple of pink brads along the top and a threaded button along the bottom layer which was cut at an angle. This sentiment is so beautiful....

Being a mother in and of itself is a huge job and one we should thank the Lord for every day. The time we have with them is so precious.... I just wish they wouldn't grow quite so fast. You may wonder why I am thinking this way...well, my oldest turns 13 next week and I am amazed how the nearly 13 years have flown by! :o) She is thrilled to be getting older, but her daddy and I still see a little girl with pig tails carrying her Bitty Baby everywhere....

Blessings,
