Blogger's Challenge ~ Mother's Day

Been a little busy this week, and today, I can relax and catch my breath. I had two 8 page scrapbook classes this week and I'm a little tired today.

Plus, I took my mom into Boston yesterday, and her pneumonia has improved, but she can't hear a darn thing! The doctors said their is so much water behind her ears, that it's like she's trying to hear from under water.

I'm just asking for a few prayers for my mom that she'll be doing better soon.. :( This morning's watercolored card is for her. The inside is stamped with the sentiment "wonderful mother" I spent some time on this water colored image. I used water color paper in my scrap booking class. I really love how the colors are so vibrant on this paper. I used markers, an aqua painter and just had fun with it. I used the enfrancis background and the medallion background, and used pastels to add subtle color. I finished it off with the vanilla satin ribbon. I hope you all have a wonderful mother's day.

Rubbah hugs,
Selene Kempton
