If Heaven had an address... this one is for Mom!

Hello dear friends.  Our Beary Sweet Designers are Celebrating Mother's Day on the DT Blog.  If you haven't been there for some inspiration, head on over and check out their delightful projects.
The girls on Team 1 have begged me to share my card with you today.  They weren't taking "no" for an answer - LOL.  I originally designed this card for the last MMSC, but due to my computer issues, I was unable load it before the deadline.   What a bummer.  Maybe next time, right?

Our theme this week is Mother's Day.  I think this card is quite suitable for the occasion.  If Heaven had an address.....
...I would send this card to my Mom.  Mother's Day has been a very difficult time of year for me since loosing my Mom to cancer over 5 years ago.  She was only 53 years young.  She passed peacefully one month from her diagnosis.  Sadly, this all took place around Christmas.  Certainly not enough time to say "good-bye", but we were also grateful that she did not suffer long like her father (my PopPop).  She is sadly missed.

After spending some time with my munchkins in the morning, I generally find myself hiding out in my studio crafting for a few hours on Mother's Day. This is where I feel closest to my Mom. She is the reason I got myself into the business to begin with. She was an amateur photographer, an amazing artist, and a local business owner herself (flowers, balloons, and gifts). By combining all of her passions, I found this wonderful world of paper crafting and scrapbooking that captures the beauty of her spirit.  And best of all, I get to share it with so many wonderful people.  If I had a sentiment inside this card it would read...

"Thank You Mom!  For everything you are and continue to be.  For your support, guidance, and unconditional love.  Even though you are not here with us, you are still HERE.

Kimm, Jenn & Mandy"

Enough of the sappiness.  Now let me share with you the ingredients of my card.
Sorry about my sappiness, but I  hope you have enjoyed my creation.  Thank you for stopping by today.  Remember to give your Mom a hug and tell her just how much you love her this Mother's Day, and everyday.  I hope all of our Moms, Grandmas, Aunts, even our "Fur-Mommies" out there have wonderful Mother's Day!
