Hope all of you are doing well on this wonderful Sunday!  It seems as though the time passes to quickly on Sundays and then I am back to the work week.  But, that is OK!  It just means I still have a job and God is still in control.

This is a card I made this afternoon for the Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge.  Most of the time when I see a sketch, I go through some of my most recent stamp sets to see what might work for that particular sketch.  This time I went through my older, but still active stamps and this is the one that kind of said, "It's my turn."  I just love this set and last year right after I got it, for about 3 months straight made a card to send to my mom each month.  I think it was because of all the sentiments that come with it.  Each month I used a different one, but they all described her perfectly!  Can you tell I love my MOM! 

Also the colors were inspired by a photo for this weeks color challenge at Christian Paper Crafts!  I just love to look at photos to be inspired.  We all see them differently don't we?

This is the inside of the card with the sentiment!
