Amber's Crafts and Stuff - Special Lady

Hello bloggers,

Firstly let me apologize for my lack of projects lately. In December, I was diagnosed with an Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) called Ulcerative Colitis. In short, I go through periods of extreme fatigue and discomfort. It drains me to the point where just going to work is a hurdle. I'm much better than I was a year ago, but I still have a long way to go. Too bad it has to take my desire to craft when it's at it's worse.

This week's project is in honor of the special women in our lives. Seems like time is just flying by! Before you know it, Christmas will be here. Geez! My mom and I have always had our differences, but I love and respect her more than words can say. She's taught me countless lessons in love, life, and cultural differences. Without her, I don't know who I'd be.

Here's my project:

I really need to invest in some color pencils, chalks, crayons or something!!

A2 sized card
I used a punch that I won from a giveaway over at, Thanks Janice!! I thought the little hearts would provide a subtle accent
All the paper is from an old stash.

Head on over to Amber's Crafts and Stuff to enter for a chance to win this week.

Here's a photo of my mom from the cruise we took last year. She'll kill me for posting it, but I just wanted to share it with you.

  1. Hi, Natasha! You did a great job on your card and I'm sure your mom will love it. My won mom passed away in 2001 and I still miss her terribly. I miss making things for her too. Anyway, just popped in to say hi.


  2. Very sweet image! TFS your pic of your mom :) I'm sure she will cherish her card made by her wonderful daughter.

  3. I'm sure your mom will love having such a cute handmade card from you. Like Annie, I lost my mom a few years ago. Lovely you took your mom on a cruise. Hugs lin

  4. What a great card! I love that border punch and it's perfect here.
    I'm so sorry that you've not been feeling the greatest. A friend from uni had colitis and I remember that it was not nice for him at all! Praying you have more good days than bad!
