Hi. I'm Donna and the owner of a business called Luv2Emboss. I've been crafting since the moment I could color with a crayon without eating it first! I have been embossing with Lasting Impressions' Brass Templates for 20 years and I am on their Design Team. I also love to craft with rubber stamps and I sell Lawn Fawn products. I hope the cards and projects I display will perk your interest to try a new craft or play with an old one! Enjoy. :-)

A MOTHER'S LOVE

Good morning!  I'd like to tell you a short version of why I've been absent!  I am a mom of 3 beautiful, wonderful, adult children.  My youngest had some very serious surgery in November 2020 and is recovering from that surgery here with us in San Diego.  She is now facing radiation and will be with us for the next two months.  If you are a mom, then you know that it's so very hard to watch your child, no matter what age, suffer and be in pain.  You find yourself wishing you could take that child's place.  Having my daughter with us has been a blessing on so many levels and the one I am addressing at this moment is the level of love a mother has for her child.  I am so very proud of my daughter and I am cherishing each and every moment we have together while she travels this very difficult road to recovery.

I am reminded of a card I made so many years ago.  It was for Mother's Day and while my own mom passed away many years ago, I taught this technique using a Mother's Day theme in one of my classes.  My daughter and I just found this card, in a shoe box of a million cards "I've just got to save (ha, ha)," and it gave me the opportunity to tell Lori how honored I am to be her mother.

This card technique is called a "Flip Card."  As you open each "level," you display another version of the card until you have flipped it 3 times ... to the end!  I hope you will enjoy seeing my card once again and maybe be inspired to send someone a card of love to your mom, your daughter, your son, or a friend who might love knowing you are thinking of them.  I am wishing you all an amazing day and I thank those who have been so sweet to send cards, prayers, and love to my daughter.  With hugs, love and joy, :-)  Donna

  2. I remember this card. I must have been with you when we explored doing this technique because I know I came home and taught it to my class. Sending love and prayers to you all (including the ones from my pupils!)
