This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 274 - Tempting Coral Rubies. My layout is from Monday's MOJO MONDAY SKETCH # 142.
Now I have to admit I cried the entire time I was loading this so ignore the smears. This is also for Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 276 - Getting Personal. This card was made in honor of my Mom who would have been 80 this year if Cancer had not taken her from us 20 years ago. It is really hard to believe it has been 20 yrs and I still can not go to the grave. She was a waitress who worked her way through LPN school while raising me and my older brother in our early years of life. It was so hard on her, even as a child I could tell that. Anyway my mom, like me, had dark olive complection and instisted on keeping her hair (unlike me, LOL) Jet black even at the age of 60. She was nursing back when they had to wear caps. I can remember her starching her uniforms and cap and polishing her shoes.
Needless to say she NEVER would have worn blue stockings but it just seemed to fit on here. Can't you just hear that seductive voice saying "get well honey"? I used some MME dp from Butterflies and blossoms, some cameo coral, ruby red and tempting turquoise cs for matts and a white card base.
