For My Mom

After 5 months away from my stamps, I'm back. I am in a new house, in a new country. I don't have a stamping room set up yet - that has to wait for some more furniture to arrive and a certain dog we're watching to return to it's home. So I stamped on the dining room table today.

I have been longing to stamp, and I have been longing to make a card for my Mom. I missed making her one for Mother's Day because I didn't have any stamps with me. Mom is in the process of dying, so this could be the last card I ever get to make for her. I hope it is okay. I kind of wanted to add a bow but I thought that: a) it would get too "fussy" and, b) it would make it difficult to mail. Since I have to mail it internationally that could be a real issue.

So here it is. The front:

And the inside:
My Mom made a difference in the lives of a lot of people. She quietly modeled the life of someone who serves Jesus. My siblings and I have heard this from childhood friends. I know that I have not shown the same servant heart as my Mom, but I do sincerely hope that I am at least a little bit like her, and that somehow people will see Jesus in me, as they did in her.
