Moms / Special Lady

My mom amazes me.  I'm sure we all feel like that.  But this little woman (and she is little - I think she weighs all of 110 pounds anymore) is a little firecracker and has more strength than she realizes.  And she took me and raised me as her own.  Yes, I'm adopted.  I've never known any other mom because I was adopted at 7 weeks of age.  But growing up my parents always told me I was special because I was chosen.  A mom isn't someone who gives birth to a child.  A mom is someone who holds your head over the toilet when your throwing up.  A mom is someone who kisses all the boo-boo's.  A mom is someone who tells you that you look like a clown when you first start wearing make-up (and even though you don't believe it then - years later you know she was right- LOL!).  I have a great MOM!  I may not have her DNA, but she is part of me in every other way - in every decision I make, in every day of my life her influence and teaching is there.

To celebrate moms or a special lady, The Crafter's Cafe Challenge has two sponsors - Beansie Doodles and Paper Shelter.  I used "My Sweet Mommy" from Paper Shelter for my card.  I colored it with pencils and used some scrap papers I had along with a 3-d sticker.


I'm entering this card into the following challenge:
Thanks for stopping by today!  God bless you!!!

Beautiful card with a beautiful testimony. One thing I'd like to add, God choose your mom for you, weather by birth or by adoption, she was hand picked for you, the perfect fit!
Happy mothers day to you too!
