A Card for My Grandpa


Happy Wednesday Everyone,
I’m going to visit my family this weekend. I made this card for my Grandpa. I thought he might enjoy a weekly joke and updates on my life. He enjoys when I stop by and always tells me a story about what we did when we were little. Update: My daughters’ wedding has come and gone, & it was a lot of fun. We had such a great time…we joked that the wedding celebrations lasted all weekend. Here’s the card info and challenges I did this week. The card sketch used for this card is from Card Scraps.
I combined this card for the following challenges:


Card Scraps - Sketch
Hand Full Of Stamps - Use up that Stock
Caardvarks - Mono Chromatic
SEW MANY Challenges - Anything Goes
Our Creative Corner - Blossoms
One Stitch at a Time - Flowers


Card items used:
Green diamond paper from My Minds Eye “Where the Heart Is” paper pack
Center strip of paper is one of my scraps from K&C “Sea Glass Stripe Flat Paper”
Prima Green Flower
Both brads in flower and flower brads made by Making Memories.

This is such an adorable card, though the paper makes it more maculine. Love the image you chose and the way you colored it. Have fun at your Grandfathers.
