happy grandparents day

So next week on Sunday is Grandparents Day! I didn't even know there was such a thing...did you? I wanted to get some cards made for all the grammies and papas in our lives. That means 9 cards!...aren't we so blessed to have 8 grammies & 4 papas to send cards to and a sweet couple who live by us that we have adopted to be a grammie & papa! :) I sat down last night to make a few cards and here is what I made...I decided to make 3 of these and then that was as far as I got. My dad called and we chatted for almost an hour (impressive since my dad isn't much for phone conversations...he likes the real life ones better!) After we hung up I felt like being lazy and not doing anything else...although it was 11:00pm...so I guess that's ok! Anyway...back to the card...I used the same card idea from a couple months ago, just changed it up a little bit to fit who it was going to! I thought it would be cute to use the "you float my boat" and cross out the 'my' and stick in 'our'. I used some stickles to make it glitter and on 2 of the others I just embossed the heart with clear embossing powder to make it shine.
**Have a relaxing Labor Day and enjoy the end of the long weekend! Thanks for stopping by...I am hoping to post something else tonight...if I can sweet talk my hubby into taking the kids swimming, then I can stamp for a little bit this afternoon!! :)
