Strong Women

Susan at 52-Card Pick Up has challenged us this week to honor amazing women. I chose to add the word strong, as I have been privileged to be surrounded by strong, amazing women in my life. I was able to find this piece of clip art and it illustrates so perfectly how the strong, amazing women in my life have happily shared their knowledge and compassion with me as I have grown into a woman. My Mother's Mother, my Mother, my Mother-in-Law have been women who have held together our families with strength, grace, charm, and firmness of spirit that have not only touched our lives, but countless other lives that we don't even know about. My Grandmother was always a font of homilies and I usually hear her voice as I need an appropriate solution to problems that might arise. My Mother has always been johnny on the spot for all of us no matter what, and my Mother-in-Law has the same qualities. I have discovered that as long as I travel the path these women have forged for me I don't go wrong.
3 Challenges:
Supplies: White Card Blank 5 1/2" X 6" Halcraft, Papers: Stampin Up, Stamps: StampinUp-Sprinkles, heidi grace-words, Clip Art, sentiment generated in PrintMaster11, Ink: Stampin Up-Riding Hood Red, CTMH marker-Chocolate, Sakura Gelly Roll pen-White, Sizzix-Bigz-Dingbats #1, Fiskars shape cutting template-Circles-1, Stampin Up-Heart to Heart punch, glue dots.
