How wonderful to see the beautiful artwork of Erica’s mom this week at the Friday MashUp # 129. I loved the rich, dark colors of SU Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso melding together with the mellow So Saffron.
My mom is not an artist with pens or brushes but when it comes to canning fruit and jellies- she is an artist for sure! I just stopped by this weekend for her BIRTHDAY and shopped in her canning center. I picked up some delicious tart cherry preserves, elderberry jelly, and peach marmalade. If there is a fruit to be picked and canned- she (and my faithful dad) get to work. So, this card is a Mashed Up tribute to my mom- the canner of pears (and anything else she can get her hands on!)
I put the sentiment on the inside to keep the card looking clean like a portrait. Mom will display it and save it for sure;) This card has the tic-tac-toe of Embossing, Birthday, and Button so I am sharing it with Ann and The Paper Players # 165 this week.
