It Takes a Strong Mom to be a Great Mom

This is the card I sent to my mom for Mother's Day. She has Alzheimer's and is in an assistant living home down in FL. She used to love to go the strawberry festival in Plant City, FL for many, many years. I'm not sure she can remember going but I had fun making this card for her. Stamps by Colorado Craft Co. Strawberries and basket set by The Greetery.  Notice the chocolate covered strawberry at the bottom? Those are my favorite! Which by the way, our daughter gave me some for Mother's Day and they are delicious!! I may even have one for breakfast this morning to start my day off right. LOL

Awe what a sweet card for Mom! I'm sure even if she couldn't express it, she remembers and was touched that you remembered her fond memories in the strawberry fields. And, yes, I did notice that chocolate covered strawberry ... YUM ... one of my favorites treats!! Awesome card Sherri!

I've lived in FL for forty years and still haven't made it to the strawberry festival. I do love strawberry season in FL though. Your chocolate covered one is the perfect touch. I'm sure your mom enjoyed this card. Thanks so much for playing along with us at the HLS die challenge!
