Happy Mother’s Day!

Gma%20R[1] I want to wish my virtual stamping buddies a Happy Mother's Day!  My family and I will be visiting my husband's Grandmother Rosella (age 100–see this post for her special card) Sunday morning.  She's feisty, charming and has a memory extraordinaire.  I love her childhood stories.  She's the proud matriarch of five generations.

We next zip over to my sister's to have a family "tea" hosted by my niece, Mary Lee (from New "Yawk" City)–the consummate gourmet and garnish maven.  I get the day off–hee hee!

Check out this fascinating history of Mother's Day!

COMING UP NEXT:  My Mojo Monday Sketch 86 design will be up and ready for you on Monday at 7:00 a.m.  I discovered a new twist on this vase I created previously using the Wide Oval Punch.  Stay Tuned.  Think Stampin' Up! Pocket Silhouettes 🙂



  1. What a blessing she must be to the whole family. I hope someone is recording her stories for posterity. Now having a keen interest in genealogy, I wish I’d recorded my grandparents while I had the chance.

  2. Happy Belated Mother’s Day to you!!

  3. Happy ‘late nite’ Mothers Day!
    Hope you enjoyed it with Grandma Rosella!

  4. Happy Mother’s Day to you too!!

    🙂 xxxoo

  5. This lady sounds like what we call here in the South a “steel magnolia”. That is, a strong woman. Mary, I’m glad you got the day off. You deserve it. As for New York, before I saw where you lived, I thought that you must be in Manhattan because you look so sophisticated and cosmopolitan. But then, there are some people like that everywhere. I have a cousin in Brooklyn. You should hear our conversations. Accents!

  6. Happy Mothers Day to two beautiful ladies!! Thanks, too, Mary for taking the time to leave inspiring comments on my blog… and to thank me for leaving them on yours! I’m giving you the Lemonade stand award for great attitude and gratitude.. you can pick it up tomorrow (5/11) on my blog http://createdbyu.blogspot.com Sharon

  7. Happy Mother’s Day to you and yours. You and your Husdands Grandmother is just beautiful!
    Thank You for all the wonderful gifts you have given us leading to this great day. I look forward to many more post from you.
