Mother's Day

Mother's Day in the US occurs on Sunday, May 11, this year, so I made a card for my mom who always likes receiving the things I have made. I created a simple card using a photo of her mother, my grandmother Maude Gillis Lovejoy, which was taken when she was quite young (I wish I knew the date.) I kept it simple so the focus is on the photo, and I added some gold peel-offs to accent the picture. The big surprise is that I had an old, damaged photo of Mom's sisters, my aunts, restored and sent a copy of that picture and a CD with the picture on it so she can make as many copies as she likes. I plan to work with that image in the next few days and will post later. A big weekend with our sons, DIL's, and grand kids is coming up, so I'll be busy, busy, busy!

I'll bet your Mom really, really loved the card. Who wouldn't be especially touched to see THEIR Mom on a card given to them!

This is very special. I bet your mum loved it.

Have you ever seen the British TV series entitled 'Lovejoy'? Well worth a look if you can find it!!! All about a rather attractive but slightly dodgy antique dealer in the east of England...
