Happy Grandparent's Day!

Today is Grandparent's least my calendar says so. Must just be another 'Hallmark' holiday, but for those who love to stamp it is an excuse to play around with fun stamps and such!

I made this card for my mother-in-law. She calls my son her 'sugar pie' which always makes him grin and giggle. The 3 pies are for each of her grandchildren- my 2 and my nephew Ben. Every Thursday night she comes over and watches the kids and puts them to bed while I go to work- an amazing women and a wonderful grandma! Although...she does NOT like being called a grandma- she prefers Granna...what's the difference?? I don't know, but it makes her happy!

Stamps: pie image and 'pie' text from The Birds and the Bees (by Kim Hughes for Cornish Heritage Farms), 'sugar' text from Little Gal (by Kim Hughes for Cornish Heritage Farms)
Ink: Black (Memento); Raspberry Fizz (Papertrey Ink); Copics; Sakura glitter marker
Cardstock: STamper's Select, Raspberry Fizz (Papertrey Ink)
OTher: Embossing folder (Cuttlebug); foam dimensionals

  1. This was truly delightful, thank you for sharing. Yesterday, National Grandparents Day, we have launched Grandchild Connection, a service that strengthens the bond between grandparents and grandchildren. Grandchild Connection allows distant grandparents and grandchildren to develop close, meaningful relationships by utilizing today's technology of video conferencing. As part of the "VideoVisit" experience, we coach grandparents in educational and social activities that enhance the bonds they share with their grandchildren, and we provide the tools to achieve that end. We have launched our website today, National Grandparents Day, September 13th, 2009Come visit us @ grandchildconnection dot com
