Every once in a great while, an image will just strike you and bring back fond and loving memories. Recently, I downloaded a sheet of images from Gecko Galz called M is for Mother. I immediately was drawn to this gorgeous retro image of a mother and her two small children. Instantly, I was back in the late 50s. My beautiful mother was a brunette, rather than a blond, but also wore her hair upswept, and had this exact dress. The children in the image also reminds me of a photo of my oldest brother and me. The photo was taken when I was four and my brother, Steve, was three. I still remember when it was taken. Back then, photographers came to your home. Hence I thought the quote I included seem appropriate. It is one of the first quote stamps I ever purchased, and one I reach for time and again, over the years.
I am entering this at Simon Says Stamp and Show where the challenge is "Quotable" and we are to create a project with a quote. A few notes on the composition of my card. The background was made with my newly acquired Distress Paints. I love the softness of Frayed Burlap and Spun Sugar and how it coordinated with the focal image. I wrestled with the paper doily as this is more of a retro card than vintage, but then I remembered my mom would buy paper doilies to hang over the shelf of her china closet, so I decided it was just fine. The vintage buttons and snippet of seam binding fashioned into a bow complete my card. Thank you so much for dropping by. Wishing everyone fond and loving memories this Easter. Yvonne
