Holiday

Did you know today is Grandparents Day?  Yeah, I wouldn't have either except it was mentioned in our announcements segment at our church last week.  So, being a good mother of grandchildren (and of course "needing" to make cards) I set to work to create a special card for my mother-in-law (and father-in-law, but his will be in my next post).  She's a card maker, too, so she doubly appreciates it.

Challenges:
Skipping Stones Design #144--sketch
JUGS#153--stamped line art (no-coloring)
Stamping Sisters in Christ #156--bright colors only
Just Add Ink #134--just add polka dots

Supplies:
papers: DCWV (Christmas stack)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink "Menhdi Medallion" (stamped in white kraft ink, SU! and embossed with white embossing powder); Sweet 'n Sassy "Special"
Punches: SU! scalloped border punch
