G & G You're The Best

Hi all !

Todays Tuesday so there is another challenge over at Celebrate The Occasion and I wanted to enter my take and support the other team. The challenge this week is to create a project that honors Someone Special for GrandParent's Day!

I decided to make a card and I tried to make the bottom portion look like a quilt. A big, warm, comfy quilt just reminds me of my grandparents!


Why don't you hop on over and join us by creating something for your grandparents and sharing your project with us!!!

Supplies used: cardstock -cream, blue, white; patterned papers - Nathan, Isaac, Preston, Mathew in Oh Baby! Boy by Basic Grey; label punch - EK Success; border punch - Martha Stewart; lace - Joann's; Rub ons - simply sweet by Doodlebug and sentiments by Crate Paper; Pop Dots; sewing machine.

A beautiful sentiment and a card that shows that the comfort of a quilt also reflects the comfort loving grandparents bring to a grandchild. Great Job !
