Mother's Day

This mother's day card is for the bloggers challenge this week and for my husband's step mother.  She lives in South FL, so I thought the bright colors would be appropriate and the patchwork look of this card is also fitting of the way that our family(immediate AND extended)  is stitched together out of mistakes, heartbreaks and redemption into something beautiful through God's mercy and lovingkindness. I pray that you would honor your mothers...for better or worse and greater still that those of you who are mothers would be honored this weekend.
 Her children rise up and bless her;
Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:
"Manydaughtershavedone nobly,
But you excel them all."
Proverbs 31:28-29
