OWH Sketch Challenge #152

This week's sketch challenge over at Operation Write Home looks like this:


Here is my version:

Fiskars sentiments, scrap paper, Sizzix texture plate.

I have missed the past few challenges and throw downs.  My darling mother died on December 14, after a 3 month fight against Cushing's Disease.   She inspired my serial crafting, and supported my habits through her garage sale and thrift store finds.  She was the only parent I had, and I will miss her terribly. I will honor her by continuing to create and give - as she did until the end. 


  1. Bobbi, your card is beautiful. The sentiment is perfectly highlighted with the pretty circle border. I am so sorry for your loss right now. What a wonderful way to honor your mother, by continuing to do something she loved. God bless you!

  2. Bobbi, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your mom. How sweet you are honoring your mom through your creations; it will bring you comfort over the upcoming days and months. My Dad has been gone just over 8 years and I miss him daily but the pain is not as sharp. I pray that your pain will ease soon. Your card is a wonderful tribute to your mom- beautiful sentiment and I really like your paper choices. Take care of yourself, Diane

  3. Bobbi, so sorry for your loss. I have no doubt your was very proud of you and your talents. What a beautiful card in her honor, thank you for sharing.

  4. I am so sorry for your loss, especially at this time of year - I am so happy for you that she encouraged you to do something you are so good at - your card is beautiful - your mom will live on forever in your memories and your heart - Merry Christmas, I hope its filled with lots of very special memories.

  5. I lost my brother at this time last year and I'll always remember him at Christmas. I'm sorry for your loss and your mother is in a better place now. Your card is beautiful and the sentiment is great. Take care.

  6. I'm so sorry about your Mom. Your card is beautiful and a lovely tribute to her. May your crafting bring you comfort and a return to joy.
