Que sera, sera

Welcome and a little inspiration.

 Now that the challenge goes for the whole month you still have plenty of time to play.

Made another envelope matching liner. You can see how Here

My mother used to sing this Que Sera, Sera song to me when I was little. It makes me think of her and Doris Day.  Here is the link to the song. Doris Day - Que Sera Sera - YouTube  
My mother has a beautiful voice and often sang solos at Mass.
 I get a lump in my throat just thinking about it. 
I was so proud of her.( still am)
 Ava Maria was one she sang often at church. 

Ok, back to the card. I used Que Sera Sera and Quilted Hearts Set 

I hope you find some time to play along , you have two more weeks for a chance to win 20$ off your order.  FREE shipping on all orders of 10$ or more through  Jan. 22, 2014

  1. Yes, beautiful song!
    With a special meaning for you too!
    Makes the 'heart' on your FAB card extra special!
    Thanks for sharing.
    Makes you realise how personal it can be to make cards yourself, doesn't it? Sweet memories of people we love and will remember for the rest of our lives, a beautiful thought, behind a beautiful card.
    Take care, Mary Beth!
    Bye and a hug from the Netherlands,


    Ps. I sometimes sing this song too, when I'm doing the dishes and no one else is in the kitchen, ha, ha, because I can't sing as good as your mother, but it brings back sweet memories which I cherish!
