Memories of Mom.

Hello everyone: I hope you and your families are healthy and safe in these very difficult times, please don't forget to wear your masks, this literally can save your life.


I have a very simple and nostalgic card to share today.  This little sewing machine looks a lot like the one my mom had as I was growing up, she later gave it to my grandma when she came to live with us, those years were the happiest for me. 

My mom passed away 3 years ago, my maternal grandma 37 years ago, I miss them so very much.

This is the INSIDE.

And this is what I used.

Paper Tray Ink "Quilter Sample"
Paper Tray Ink "Quilter Sample Coordinating Sentiments"
Prismacolor pencils.
SU "Pretty in Pink" marker.

I want to play at:

Anything Goes.

Clean and Simple.

Thank you for visiting.
Stay healthy and safe and please don't forget to wear your masks.




  1. Vintage and darling. Reminds me of the sewing machine Scott's (my husband) grandmother used!

  2. Beautiful card, Maria. So sentimental. My grandmother made all my clothes until I graduated from college and petite sizes became available. Thanks for sharing these precious memories. Enjoy your day.

  3. What lovely memories and the perfect card to reflect this. I love you placed it all at the bottom so lots of white space. And super inside sentiment and fab quilts. Thanks for joining CASology

  4. Your darling card is nostalgic for me, too, Maria. My mom was an amazing seamstress and made all my clothes right up till junior high school. Very cute stamps you used, and your card is a perfect fit for all these challenges. Hugs, friend!

  5. So sweet, Maria. It's amazing how small things are so big to us - especially as they relate to our moms. Such a sweet card and sweet post.

  6. Yes, that sewing machine brings back memories of my mom too ! She had a sewing machine like this until she went MODERN !!
    Such a sweet card of memory !

  7. What absolutely wonderful quotes! I learnt to sew on my Mum's machine which was like this one! Thank you for joining us at Try It On Tuesday! Chrisx

  8. Very lovely card. Great sewing theme and memories of your Mom and Grandmother. Both of mine were wonderful seamstresses and I have many memories of items they made and seeing them sew. Sweet creation and thoughts.
