I got this embossing folder maybe 2 months ago and have been conceptualising this card ever since. I knew it had to be for my mother and that it had to be clean and simple - my mom doesn't like grand and lavish cards too much. Then I wanted to get the color scheme right and this week's combination at Dynamic Duos is pretty awesome - Cherry Cobbler and Pool Party. And with Mother's Day around the corner, I thought it was time to finally create this card.
The embossing folder has a tree design and I wanted it to put a spin on the saying 'the apple doesn't fall far from the tree'. It means 'like parent, like child'. So my card shows an apple tree with a few apples fallen beside it and my sentiment is "Hope I never fall too far from your tree".
I was thinking about it and I realised the sentiment applies physically and emotionally. I am very lucky to have my folks living just down the road from my place which means I am literally physically close to my mother. Plus emotionally we are very close and I hope that continues for as long as I have her in my life. Hence the sentiment "Hope I never fall too far from your tree.
Oops, I'm tearing up... Better close this now. Thanks for stopping by and thanks so much for all your kind words on my 100 followers candy. I am so grateful to you all for your support and all the comments just made the candy sweeter!
