Bloggers Challenge ~ Mothers Day Project

I was bouncing around on line this week and ran across Kelli Purkey's pin technique on Amy Celona's blog. I decided I wanted to try this awesome technique. My pin is pinned to my card and ready to remove.
The card was made for a single mom, girlfriend. I don't know how she does it and I'm inspired by her. When a divorce gets ugly, there's not much you can do. However, she rises above all the pettiness and puts her kids first. She puts her own issues aside and doesn't let the kids see the real deal. That is strength. I thought she deserved a card, that took me all day. :) this one did between layers, but I had a blast.
Happy Mothers Day!
