Scraps, Sketches & Freebies by Fred She Said

My card today was a happy accident, I printed my verse too large for what I was planning to use it for so instead of letting it get lost in the mess of scraps I thought I'd combine it with some of my real scraps and make a card with it.  The sketch layout is a past sketch challenge by Mercy Karin at her Lord Have Mercy blog that I can't seem to get enough of.  Everything looks good with this sketch! 

Today is or would have been my Mom's 84th birthday, seems kind of odd to me that she's been gone ten years already.  At the time of her death I remember thinking life would never be the same without her and it hasn't been, it's swiftly moved forward ready or not.  It all seems so final here on earth,  I can't wait to see her again one day in heaven I have so much to share with her.  But for today, Happy Birthday Mom!

The bible verse on my card today must be for me... 
Have a blessed Sunday!
