What I Remember Best

Hello everyone! Today I have a card to share with you that I've created for the Mother's Day/for Mothers challenge at Card Crafter's Circle.  I have tons of wonderful memories of my mother growing up, and am blessed to still have her with me.  My ultimate memory was how she would sit down with me and my brothers and teach us about Jesus and to trust in the Bible. I can still sing those songs she used to sing to us to. Praise the Lord Jesus that my parents were the ones to introduce me to the Saviour! Nothing in life is more important than that!
I saw this image at Dearie Dolls and knew I wanted to use it.
And what better place to have a comfy chair but in a living room.  
I've coloured the image and fussy cut it.  Then I popped it up in this room that I've created for it.  The papers are from ATD Momenta and the lace from my collection.  The rhinestones are from Forever in Time and the sticker from ATD Momenta for the pic framed with a lovely frame by Merci.
There is some incredible inspiration and fun at the Card Crafter's Circle, do come join us! This weeks sponsor is Mary Ellen from Dearie Dolls and the winner gets three digis of their choice from the ones the Design Team has used.  I will tell you it'll be hard to choose!  Now Dearie Dolls store is closed at the moment, but she has created a wonderful Dearie Dolls blog to share her art and they are all free! So do pop over HERE and leave her some love!
Have a great day and hope to see you there!

I want to sit in that chair, in that pretty room...haa!
It's an adorable card, and any mother would just feel all warm 'n' fuzzy to get it!

This is such a charming card. You have done such a lovely job creating the "room." Such great memories to have of your own Mum, and I know you are passing those same kinds of memories on to your children. Bless you.

You're right. There's nothing better than instilling the love of God and His truth in your children and then seeing it help bring them to salvation. What a beautiful memory for you Jennifer and a wonderfully sweet card. Hugs!
