Happy Grandparents' Day (Yesterday)

Happy Grandparents' Day (yesterday)! The occasion snuck up on me, so yesterday morning before church I whipped out a pair of these cards. They were so much fun to make! When I saw this week's sketch over at Card Positioning Systems, I had to give it a try.


I used several of my Word Puzzle sets for all the images on the card. (I cannot believe that they are being retired! Should have known that would happen since I now have all 12 of them! Seriously, they are the most awesome set of monthly stamps ever.) "Happy" came from the March set, "Grandparent's Day" and the focal sentiment are from the September set, and the heart and "Love U" border are from the February set. My color palette came from the Notebook collection: Colonial White cardstock, Blush, Hollyhock, and Crystal Blue ink for the stamping, and Bamboo and Desert Sand for the distressing. Have I told you how much I love our new buttons?!? Not as much as I love the girls' grandparents, but still! We love you, Grammie & Grumps and BJ!

BTW, this card measures 8"x3.5", which makes it perfect to mail in a business envelope. It's sometimes hard in my bitty town to find envelopes in the size you need (though now that Wal-Mart has arrived I guess it won't be the problem it used to be).

I wish I had all 12 word puzzles!! You are lucky to have them all. I just can't afford to buy them all.
