If you have just stopped for a visit today -- welcome and glad you came but I wouldn't want you to miss a single testimony along the way and would want you to start at the beginning with Lynne at Her Craftiness ( If you arrived from then you are following a mother's love.

     For this project I made a card for my mother (which I will send, really I will).  My mom is an amazing woman that dedicated herself to making others feel well for many years. She owned a health food and vitamin shop for many years and always kept up with what was out there that could help people. She was always ahead of the curve and did so much good for so many people.
      So, whenever I get sick or feel bad I miss my mom more then than at other times. She always knew what to do to make me feel better, and I still call her to ask her questions when anyone in my family is ill. So, I thought.... what makes people feel better (other than their mother's)? Chicken soup of course! And, while my mother never would have given me chicken soup since she is a vegetarian, it still reminds me of her!

     I tried to create the illusion of depth with ink, but I don't think I accomplished my goal very well. I used ribbon for the noodles and chicken (or tofu!), and paper for the vegetables. I created circles in SCAL and then cut them in half and cut a semi circle off for the celery. The broth was created by using the back cover of a pad of scrapbook paper. That circle and the card itself were also cut with SCAL. I made the card by overlapping two circles and welding them! I thank you for stopping and checking out my project and must send you on your way to
