Mothers are the stitches

Happy Mother's Day! Here is my Mother In Law's Mother's Day card. It was so much fun to make! I made it especially for her and here is why ... she is a big seamstress so I used a piece of Stella Ruby paper from BasicGrey because it has the sewing pattern images on the beautiful papers. I also used the Quilter's Sampler stamp set from Papertrey Ink. I had so much fun hand stitching some yellow floss (DCM) coming from the needle. Finally, see those buttons ... they belong to Great Grandma Mary, my MIL's mother who passed away a fwe years ago. I have a special jar filled with her buttons (she collected lots of them) and use them on family cards!! I know that my MIL will appreciate these small little bits!! Thanks for visiting my small world of blogland!! Donelda

Beautiful card, Donelda -- the stitching really adds the perfect final touch!

I used this same sentiment on my mom's Mother's Day card!
