{TCP Summer Blog Hop} Good Morning, Sunshine!

Hello friends!

My Mom's memorial service was yesterday, and I really needed some stamping "therapy" this morning.  My poor blog has been sorely neglected this month!  I wanted to play along with both the Summer Blog Hop for The Cat's Pajamas, and the 1 year anniversary celebration over at The Curtain Call, plus I really wanted to make a card for one of the very special CNA's that worked with my Mom over the past six months.  My sweet CNA has red hair... hence my orange theme... and she always sang "You are my Sunshine" when she went to visit my Mom.  She told me yesterday that my Mom always sang along.  Mom had a beautiful voice. : )  During Mom's final week in the Hospice House she couldn't speak at all, and couldn't really communicate, but one day her CNA came to visit and leaned over and said "You are my sunshine!".  My Mom opened her eyes wide and turned her head and smiled.  It was precious. 

I used the new summer release set "Nature's Hello" from The Cat's Pajamas, coloring my image with Spectrum Noir markers.  I was inspired by the sunshine flooding the room in the Curtain Call picture,  and all the white space in the beautifully organized room.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


Stamps:  Nature's Hello (TCP); Dies:  Framed Up 2 (TCP), Stitched Circle (MFT), Stitched Rectangle (Lil Inker); Accessories:  Spectrum Noir Markers (Gina K), Embossing Folder (Paper Studio), Memento Black Ink

This is such a tender meaningful card Tricia, I’m so sorry to hear about your Mom. I pray that you know hope and healing as you remember in the days ahead. This will be such a kind gesture too.
