Day 14

Today you're on EASY street!
I love simple cards and one-layered cards are as easy as they get. Can you WOW me with just one layer of cardstock? Give it a shot!
You can add a small embellishment, but keep the actual paper to only one layer!
I'll be back with my sample before noon!
Can you get yours uploaded before me for an early bird entry? Today is the last day for that opportunity!
If you're just joining us here at Angelosity, please refer to THIS post for the details on our game!
See you in a bit!
~Angel
Today's Getting to know you Question:
Today is my mom's birthday, so in honor of her, tell me your mom's name (or caregiver from your childhood) and one word to describe her.
My mom's name is Wanda and one word for her is "Strength".

My mom's name is Elizabeth and she will be 89 in January. Right now I would describe her as independent as she still lives alone in her house. She goes to a jazzercise class 3-4 times a week (not a Seniors' class).

Deanne Burton said...

My Mom's name is ROSE and I also would use STRENGHT to describe her. She's been through a lot, including the sudden death of her husband 10 years ago. That was a shock to our whole family. She retired from teaching that year, but 7 years later, she went back teaching and has been teaching again now for 3 years (away from home, away from her family).Now, that's STRENGTH!

My card for his challenge is HERE. .It's called "THINKING OF YOU".

Happy Birthday to your mom! My mom's name is Carolyn, and "sparkle" is the word that described her; you'd know why if you had ever seen her eyes and smile.

Happy birthday wishes for Angel's mom, Wanda!
My mother's name was Reba and she was a most "compassionate" woman, who is sorely missed!

One layer!? That sounds like the hardest challenge yet - I LOVE to layer! Anyway, my Mom's name is Bernice and one word to describe her is selfless! She always puts others first (especially her kids)!

Purple Princess said...

It was harder than I thought to do just one layer! Here is the link to my card on my blog:

I actually have 2 Moms. My birth mom's name was Lola. She died when I was 9. She was very artistic and loved to have fun. It was so sad when she died unexpectedly. My second Mom is my stepmother. She has been in my life since I was 10. Her name is Nancy. She is very sensitive. We tease her about crying when watching Hallmark commercials! I am lucky to have 2 Moms. Plus I have a great mother-in-law named Georgia. She is a social butterfly, sometimes to her detriment! LOL

Angel,

My mom's name was Lillian and the one word that I could give to describe her does not exist...She was so many words to me. She gave the meaning to the word Mother!

Kate (gluegirl) said...

My mom's name was Meg and she was the most naturally generous person I ever knew. Not just generous with material things, but with her heart and mind as well.

today's card - very simple: http://images.splitcoaststampers.com/data/gallery/500/special_day_ladybugs_by_GlueGirl.jpg

CreativeJeaux said...

Sharon in NE said...

"Betty" and she has always said her favorite word to describe herself is "enthusiasm". She nailed it! This woman at 86 drives faster than anyone I know, works faster, is the first to laugh at a joke, the last one to bed, and does everything with enthusiasm. She never holds a grudge and always looks for the bright side. All my life, she said she wants that word on her tomb stone. That and she insists she'd like the phrase: "I told them I was sick." She loves a good laugh!

Sharon in NE said...

Happy Birthday Angel's mom!

Bunny B said...

Happy Birthday to your Mom!! My mom's name is Laila and her word would be "Superwoman!".

Dawn said...

My mom's name is Ginger and one word to describe her is Blessed!
