Blue Jay Mothers Day Card

Hello again two post in one day, wow! 
I made this card with a lump on my throat. The image(from Art Explosion)Reminds me of how we sometimes see our self one way and our children see us another way. They see us as strong, independent, funny, loving, young etc. etc.  Or that's how I saw my mom. My mom passed away when I was turning 21. It's been 27 years and I still miss her. Sorry, no more tears.

 I follow the sketch from Just Inspirational Challenges
The back ground paper is from EKSuccess-Blue garden swirls, the pink is from Recollections-Pretty as a Peacock.The pearls, the gems,and the ribbon are from stash. I used Stickles- Star Dust, Cotton Candy and Gold.  Liquid Pearls- White Opal. Distress with Colorbox (unknown) pink. 
 To color the bird I use chalks and the mirror I use Prismacolor chocolate pencil. Because of using chalk I spray it with Clear Acrylic Coating from Krylon
  I print sentiment with the computer and use Spellbinders die cuts to cut them. I enter this card in the following challenges;
  1. Just Inspirational Challenge Week 27"Sketch"
  2. Craft Us Crazy. #26 "Favorite stamp and/or found inspiration"

I also wanted to let yo know how sorry I am that you are going through this pain, My Mother passed away about 17 years ago and the pain is still there, I miss her everyday of my life. The tears may have dried up but sometimes at about mother's day they flow like a river. keep crafting, your crafting is so pretty and it helps to keep the mind busy. Hugs and God bless!

  6. Hi Elisa:) I just found your blog and now a new follower YAY!! Beautiful card and I'm sorry too that you are feeling this pain.
