Grandparent's Day Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Grandparent's Day Blog Hop hosted by My Craft Room!


I'm so happy to be a part of this wonderful hop honoring grandparents.  
If you're stopping by from Tess's blog Sassy Cricut Crafting then you're in the right place.  If  not, you'll want to hop over to My Cricut Craft Room and start from the very beginning because there are some wonderful projects and blog candy along the way :D

Okay for my project I made a card:

The beautiful papers I used are from BoBunny's Gabrielle line.  I cut the base of the card using my Cricut Sentimentals Cartridge, Frame 1 cut at 5.5" and using the card feature.

For the frame, I used the Accent Essentials Cartridge.  I cut Accent #47 at 3.75" and then again using the shadow feature.  I inked all of the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink is Vintage Paper.  Next I stamped my sentiment "thanking GOD for you" from the Paper Wings Productions' Scriptures stamp set on a scrap piece of white cardstock, cut it out, inked the edges and adhered to my card.  Then I used a beautiful BoBunny Gabrielle rubon.  For "Grandma" I used Recollections black glitter letters on another scrap piece of white cardstock, cut and inked.


To finish it off I added some Recollections bling, a Paperstudio rose and some small flowers from my stash.  I also did a little pen work in white and some doodling with a Faber-Castell pen.  I'm super happy with the way this project turned out and I hope you like it too!  Grandparent's Day is tomorrow so if you're lucky enough to have them, be sure to show them how much you love and appreciate them!!

Before I send you off, I have a bit of BLOG CANDY!!!

  1. Such a cute card! Such nice blog candy.

    I really like the swirls and flowers, but think the capitalised M is a bit distracting?

    Cheers!

    1. Hi Nichole! Thanks so much for your honesty, I really appreciate it :D I decided to use a large "M" because I wanted to balance out the large flower on the left. Have a wonderful day & thanks so much for deciding to follow along!!
