Lovely Lilacs

 Lilacs have always been a sentimental favorite of mine - they bring back lots of family memories.  So today for Mother's Day I made a card in honor of my Mom, who we lost at the beginning of this year at the age of 97.

supplies: white cardstock, Sunny Studio Gingham dp, Sunny Studio Lovely Lilacs stamp set, Altenew Enchanted Garden and Shades of Purple mini inks, sentiment from Simon Floral Garden, Pink Fresh Studio Stitched Scallop Rectangle dies, heart sprinkles

My sisters and I will be together today, putting lilacs on her grave and those of our grandmothers also, as she did before us.

Happy Mother's Day!

What a gorgeous card Lin - the loss of a parent is always hard, and it's wonderful to know you had her in your life for so long. I certainly is a bittersweet day for you
