Being the mother of four daughters, I have always tried to pass the love around, trying never to favor one versus the other. I'm very proud of all my girls, two of whom are super mothers in their own right!
My Mama Mia will be 92 in another month and she is the very best mom in the world!! My favorite memories revolve around food as she is an outstanding cook; my particular favorite is her homemade spaghetti and meatballs - world class!! Since I'm an only child, I always have her undivided and unconditional love as she has mine!
My first project is a Mother's Day card for my own Mama Mia using one of my favorite styles -
Everything's Coming Up Roses For You, Mama Mia!
LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon Southern Sass Collection - Buttercup HERE
Pink by Design sentiment: A mother holds her child's hand for a while but their heart, forever (love this)

Janie's adorable little girl stamp from Paper Wishes
Stampin Up cardstock, dimensionals, and ink
Colored pencils and gel pen for accenting
Pink pearls (the long piece at the bottom was just a scrap left over from cutting the mats)
For those of you who want to create a triple-stamped card, here are the dimensions I used:
Dimensions for the stamped layers - 1 each
2" x 3-1/4"
3" x 4-1/4"
4" x 5-1/4"
Dimensions for the cardstock mat layers - 1 each
2-1/4" x 3-1/2"
3-1/4" x 4-1/2"
5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (fold and score at 4-1/2" for card base to get a great crease).......and have lots of fun stamping and decorating
Next, I thought I'd try something new (for me) - quadruple stamping and here's my first attempt:
I was looking for a tutorial on this and
