A Mother's Love...

Caroline, a friend a fellow stamper where I work, brought in a beautiful book of quotes one day and I glanced through it. I eventually got pulled into the book & read them all and then chose this quote as my favorite.

"Sweater, n. garment worn by a child when it's mother is feeling chilly."

As a surprise, Caroline had this quote made into a rubber stamp for me! I was so surprised and thrilled!! I'm not sure on what occasion I would use this for a greeting card, perhaps Mother's Day? Anyway, I thought it went well with Mo Manning's little girl bike rider.


And the inside...

Hope you are all managing this heat wave. I've got the fan on high stuck right in my face while making cards... I'm pretty sure I resemble one of those skydivers. I'll leave the visual up to you. =0)

Oh that just made me smile Carla....my husband's aunt would always say to the kids - go put on a sweater, I'm cold.

Beautiful gorgeous coloring and that sweet little girl with the ladybug pack is precious!

Carla - your Mo Manning image is exquisitely colored and the card beautifully made. I look at your work and sigh in deep admiration.

Super cute, Carla, and I LOVE that sentiment (or...definition). SO cute!

Carla, I love that sentiment!!! It's a motto, a way of live in the frozen north, yes? This card is magnificent!
