The line up of amazing crafters is as follows:

For my project I wanted to highlight two aspects of the patchwork of love I have for my mother, Phyllis, who will be 90 years old next month and is affectionately known in our house as GG (great-grandma)!  Wow, what a milestone for her!!

#1 - Whenever mom came to visit us, we’d present her with all kinds of mending projects as she loved to sew, and quite frankly, if they stop making safety pins, I’m in big trouble…………Mom’s love was in every stitch………so here’s to the element of            

Recipe -
*Loralie Designs Art Stamp that I stamped, embossed, and colored
*Sewing stamps which I embossed and fussy cut
*Mambo cardstock that I fashioned into a pocket card for base and insert
*Pink By Design sentiments and Spellbinder label die for the center of the base
*Crimper and corner rounder
*Lots of love

#2 - Whenever my mom came to visit us, she would literally take over the kitchen.  My husband and our girls looked forward to all her homemade treats and dynamite full-course meals.  Before I retired two years ago, I was a teacher who lived 25 miles away from my school, so I spent a lot of time in the car.  By the time I got home, one of the last things I took any joy from was preparing dinner, but I did it – not with a great deal of relish, BUT when mom was there, I’d find the table set and a gem-of-a-meal prepared for us………Mom’s love was in every bite…….so here’s to the element of COOKING and BAKING!!

Recipe -
*La-La Land Marci baker digi which I printed off and colored, then fussy cut
*Pink By Design sentiment
*Mambo cardstock that I fashioned into a pocket card for base and insert - the spatula, spoon, and banner were cut from this Mambo cardstock
*Crimper and corner rounder
*Lots of love

My mom is my best supporter, cheerleader, confessor, and sympathizer.  She is the essence of A Mother's Heart Is A Patchwork of Love...........

Thanks for stopping by and remember, no matter how you piece your paper, have fun with it.  Come back tomorrow for a new project! Don't forget to drop me some love and become a follower if you're not!  Next stop on the hop is Jessi -
