Surving the Empty Nest- I Am More than a Mom

Supporting National Child Abuse Awreness Month!

Oh how I miss these two.  It is extremely difficult to be the mom of a Navy son.  It is a good thing that I have my craft room (which is actually Dalton's old bedroom) to keep me busy and give me a productive outlet!  Life with an empty nest is not for me, but I am finding a way to make it work.

April is National Child Abuse Awareness month.  In support of the children who can be described as "at risk," the I Feel the Love Project is collecting and sending unsigned  birthday/thinking of you cards to the Tennyson Center for Children.   These cards will be given to the kids on their birthdays or to kids and staff members when they are having a difficult day.  Click HERE for details.

This is the first of several cards that I plan to make and send in to the kids.

This sweet card can be given to a child or a staff member to offer a word of encouragement.  The adorable image is a Bestie, designed by one of my favorite digi stamp designers!  She was colored using Photoshop, but can easily be cut out black and white and colored with markers, colored pencils...

The sentiment is from the "Our Kids" stamp set, which is a product of Pink By Design.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
DL.ART - Anything Goes Linking Party
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes 
Bestie Challenge Blog - Anything Goes with a Bestie 
Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I am looking for followers so please consider following me!!  I would love for you to come back again soon.
