Hello! It's time for another challenge at My Sheri Crafts. I gotta tell ya, I struggled with what to do for this one! Sandy Palmer hosted this one and challenged us to "show us what makes your Mom unique". My Mom had LOTS of what I think of as unique traits and I didn't know what to focus on. So I finally decided to use all I could think of. Once I figured that out, I had a ton of trouble with a Cricut cut I wanted to use. When I finally got it cut, I didn't like it after all. Then I got out the brads for my flower cluster and dropped the whole box in the floor! Now I don't know about you, but I had one of those divided craft boxes with 16 individual squares and all my brads, eyelets, etc. sorted by color and size. What a mess!!!!! I still don't have them all sorted again. About 1/2 of them are still in a bowl. Anyway, I did eventually get the layout done, but was late getting the picture posted for Sheri to get it into the blogpost! Sorry Sheri!

*finished college with 6 kids at home ( I can't imagine doing this)
*was voted favorite elementary teacher by one of her classes when they graduated

*could sew anything, including my wedding dress (she was also a quilter and made one for all of us kids and had enough quilt tops made up that we made quilts for all the grandkids who came after she passed)
*could paint, crochet and had her own ceramic shop

So now you show us what your Mom is like with your card/project and join in the fun at My Sheri Crafts!
