Card With a Frame

Happy Monday everyone!  Hope all mothers were pampered and felt so loved yesterday as you celebrated Mother's Day. Truly indeed that being a mother isn't easy but it's a blessing to be one. :)

Today's card is actually an experiment for me.  My churchmate showed me a card with a frame (machine-made) that was sent to her by a friend.  It's so cool as her friend inserted their family picture inside the frame and sent it as Christmas card.  To make the story short, she asked me to make her something similar to it so she could give 'em away come Christmas this year. LOL!  Well, it was indeed a challenging task ;) and I somehow came up with this one:

The boy in the photo is my youngest, Jhetro.  He's an avid Thomas the Tank Engine fan so I used colours, dp and embellishments related to Thomas. Note: This is just a sample card to show and highlight the frame so I didn't decorate it that much.

The opening is on top of the frame and this is where you can insert your preferred photo.

Here's a closer shot:

The frame was made using Nestabilities Labels Eight, embossed with Fiskars texture plates and I did some scoring here and there.  I will still have yet to experiment more and will be posting a tutorial when it's done.

Thanks for looking and have a lovely day!

God bless us all.

This lovely song entitled "Mother I Miss You" is lovingly dedicated to my Mama who passed away 10years ago. It's a decade I know but her memories will always be fresh and vibrant in my mind.  I always miss her and I miss her much more especially on Mother's Day.

So, to all those who still have their mothers on their side, appreciate and love them while they're still alive.  Pray for her often and hug her as much as humanly possible on a daily basis. Do NOT be cold and distant and feel like she owes you because she's your mother.  You might regret it if you lose her suddenly. Remember: Nobody will ever love you like her.

MAMA, this is for you. I love and miss you so much!
