Mother Theresa Frame

Recently I done another frame with a quote from Mother Theresa and must say I am so very happy with the outcome.J

Knowing that one of my best buddies at work Melissa is going to missionary work in Ethiopia with the Living Waters, decided to make her something for fundraising. So I got her into choosing a quote as resectly she was reading her biography and  looking at her FB status you always find a good quote that make you reflect.

The work that this mission is doing is incredible, children having schools, people having a home with fresh clean water in the villages and mostly the word of God. All this is with the kind help of the Maltese people nation which is very generous and kind in every situation. I am so proud of her that she is leaving everything behind  for 5 weeks, to make a difference in these poor people lives.

Many times we complain for going to work or for finding something different to eat on our table than we expected ... while we complain and grumble about everyday simplest things, let us be grateful for all that we have a roof on your head and money in your pocket to buy everyday simplest necessities is already a blessing. We are already lucky enough to have schools, so we can educate ourselves, let us not waste that positive energy. 

Have a great day dears xx.

Supplies List
  • A frame A4 size is perfect
  • Card for backing
  • Stamps 
  • Distress Ink Pads
  • Ink pads
  • Embellishments
  • Old Dictionary paper
  • Seam Binding Ribbon
  • Paper flowers by I am Roses
  • Washi tape
  • Faber Castell - pitt artist pen Manga black set

For the backing effect with lines no stamp was needed. Some time ago i saw a crafter somewhere on You Tube using an old credit card. Simple to do, dip one side on an ink pad and then stamp it on the card in the desired angle, and voilĂ  there you have an interesting background without spending money on stamp.

After cutting 6 layers of petals for the flower colour them with distress ink and marked close the edges with a fine tip. Finally done the stamping on the flower petals. To make the center of the flower used a clock stamp.

Let us always meet each other
with smile, for the smile is the
beginning of love.
