If you have just stopped for a visit today -- welcome and glad you came but I wouldn't want you to miss a single testimony along the way and would want you to start at the beginning with Lynne at Her Craftiness (http://slasewcraftiness.blogspot.com/). If you arrived from <insert previous blog here> then you are following a mother's love.

My project is a card that I made for my daughter and of course my beautiful granddaughter, Lily. I originally was going to do a page layout with a picture of Jen holding Lily right after she was born and one of me right after Jen was born. To me being a mother is the very most important title  I could ever think of bearing!

Picture of Jen and Lily which I imported in Photobucket and played with not only the text but the funky pink heart
Antique lace from my friend, Edwina Brown,  in a lace swap
Rhinestone bling bling
Paper from my new stack, Tres Chiq' by DCWV
Now, the paperstack had a really unusal piece which I used on the front and cut a portion of the flower to be loose to actually use to hold the picture in place.
Pink center is also a RAK from Edwina Brown which fit purrfectly on my card
Sentiment is my own
Iridescent ribbon for bow in upper corner

I thank you for stopping and checking out my project and must now send you on your way to Pamela

Here is a complete line-up just in case you get lost along the way . . .
