Hi all, the month of April was my month to post the challenge. I thought long and hard about the challenge and this is what I came up with....
For you challenge this month I thought quite a bit about the challenge. As you know, we will be posting after Easter so with that in mind I thought I'd do a Mothers Day challenge. When I was a child my mom would encourage my dad to get little carnation corsages in pink or red for each of us girls and mom to wear to church on Mothers Day. According to her (and the intranet), if a woman's mother was alive the females in the family would don a red or pink flower (mostly carnations, but not a rule) and if her mom had passed, the female would wear a white flower, and would visit the grave of her mom and place a white carnation on her grave. My mom's dad would do this when she was a child and mom loved the tradition. What I would like you to do this month is create a card or project using the color that would describe your mom. As an extra I would like for you to share a special memory of your mom from when you were little (if you are comfortable with that) so we can learn a bit about the wonderful ladies who raised such beautiful paper crafters...
Now as I remember, when my mom could get my dad to get corsages for us...we felt pretty special and looked so stylin...lol. but we were very proud that we were included in the gift of flowers even if we didn't fully understand why were were getting them. My mom was a daddy's girl and I think he bought corsages for grandma and mom, more for my moms sake as she had 2 younger brothers and he could spoil her and grandma a little on this special day. Unfortunately, the color of my flowers on mothers day are white...I lost my mom 10 years ago and a day doesn't pass I don't think of her and miss her...so in honor of my mom here is my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by, please stop by the calendar girls blogs and check out the creations that each one has made in honor of their mothers.
Until next time,
