SPS my hero, my mom

any & every person who knows me


knows my mom is my hero


she raised me & my sisters alone


was there for us, for me,


when no one else was.


She will always be THE most important


woman in my life.


I can only be inspired & aspire for my boys


to be half of what she has been to me.


So this week at SPS


we are honoring our mom's


and/or heros.


My mom has always loved yellow roses,


orange crush, brass figures and earthy colors.


So to honor her


here is my card






thanks for comin by

hopefully you can show us your hero!

Hey Sinihilkka!
thanks for your question!
It is actually heat embossed with bronze embossing powder.
The circle is some recycled plasic from packaging for some double sided foam tape I bought.
