I love the color blue! Naturally I could not resist putting together a card for the new challenge over at ODBD. The ladies asked everyone to create something blue. I decided to combine a soft shade with navy and mix it up with a touch of white. The image I used is from ODBD's The Lord Has Risen set. This is one of my all time favorites!

My Mom raised violets when I was a young girl and I always remember how fickle they were. lol... Kinda like people right? Mom nurtured those things taking care to make sure they had just enough sunlight and water. Funny how Moms are like that! She made sure I had just enough food, water and discipline. (Not necessarily in that order... lol)... If you are reading this... LOVE YOU MOM! :-P

Hope you have a blessed week and stay warm for those fighting the big blizzard!
