Hero Arts Monthly Challenge - Home and Mothers Day

This months challenge at the Hero Arts Blog is Home and Mothers Day.

This Mother's Day is going to be a little difficult for me and my family. My mother passed away last year. My big sister is going to get a card from me as she and my mom always were big puzzlers. They always worked on the Sunday puzzle in the Trib and shared answers at times.

My sis is a great mom and she is divorced so she is always handling everything on her own. So this was a fun way to send her a puzzle card and this is how it is going to be sent to her.
The fun part is you take the card out with the clues. :) and fill in the answers using the little pencil.
I think she will have a fun time with her little puzzle and it will be a sweet reminder of mom.

The stamp and gems are Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping by...

  2. Honestly Sue...when I lost my dad, I found that for the first few years, I had to just be away from home for the day. So I know the feeling.

    This card is such a sweet way to honor your sister and a great way to fill a void for you by sharing your creativity with her.

  5. Hi Sue. I've just found your wonderful blog following a link from Julie R. I just had to find out who her kind friend was and I'm so glad I did. You have some amazing creations. I love your eggs.
    So sorry to hear about the loss of your Mum, these special days are so hard but what a lovely thing to send the card to your Sister instead. She will be very touched I'm sure.
    I shall look forward to being a regular visitor from now on.
