Love Like a Mum Card ~ Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

This is definitely the kind of sentiment you put on a card to your mum - especially when you have kids of your own and fully get a grasp all that she did for you that you don't even remember. That really is love. My Mum is such a constant source of wisdom and support in my life and I'm honoured to have her as a friend. Thanks Mum.

As you know this sentiment isn't so straight forward for some of us. Remember that you don't have to have physically given birth to someone to express motherly love and similarly, you don't have to have a physical Mum in your life to appreciate the love of a woman you respect. 


In April we're trying something new with the Artisan team: all 16 of us are synchronising what product we use each week in our posts. This week as you hop through you're going to see lots of fabulous ideas with the 'Mum's Love' stamp set (*Mom* if you use the US spelling!). 

Quick Reference: Mother's Day in New Zealand coming up soon ~ Sunday 10th May, 2015.

    1. Hi RaeDeen. Thanks for your kind words. Those little roses are from the Artisan Embellishment Kit in the current Occasions Catalogue. They seem to go well with everything!!
