A to Z Challenge 2019 – A is for A+

I am SO not ready yet but here goes…This is the 10th Anniversary of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge which was started by Arlee Bird.  It has grown more than he imagined I bet.  I am happy to be a participant on this special occasion.  Thanks again, Arlee!

I mentioned in my theme reveal that I was going to showcase some of the cards and other paper crafting I do and I am very excited to be able to work in my new studio!  Since I just finished a major undertaking with the Sketchbook Project, my first few letters will probably be of things I have already made but I am hoping that at some point during this month I’ll be giving you a peak at my creative process as well.  There may be some familiar things but I’m also showing cards that are a bit unique.

Without further ado, here is my offering for the letter “A”:

I am not sure how many people know about “Grandparents Day.”  I don’t have living grandparents but my kids do and I was never very good about reminding them to send a card.  This one has lots of detail with a huge A+ brad in the center and string running around the front of the focal point.  It is up on foam dots to make it stand out as well.

A+ for you

The inside says that great parents get promoted to grandparents.  Pretty sure some “not so great” parents get to be grandparents too but that’s neither here nor there.  Still, it’s a nice sentiment, don’t you think?  The inside has plenty of room for you to write a personal message. 

All my cards come with hand made matching envelopes.  This one has bits of paper from the card.  I think it adds something that you are not going to find in most card stores.   

 Grandparents Day is September 8 this year, just in case you want to be prepared to send a card to yours.  You can find this card in my Etsy shop if you are interested.

Make sure to visit some of the other A to Z’ers and show a little love.  Stay tuned for “B” tomorrow.

  2. Janet,

    I’m sorry for not getting by yesterday. I was strained to get done what I did and tried my darnedest to not miss a single person but apparently, I failed when I realized this morning I didn’t make all my rounds. What a cute card! I definitely like the sentiment. I had A+++ grAndparents! I can’t wait to see your next DIY project in the alphabet! Thank you for visiting yesterday’s Little Mermaid Art Sketch featuring Ariel! You’re off to an awwesome start, my friend. Happy A2Zing!

    That’s really cute. I have so many papers and crafting supplies, I just don’t make them a priority. I was going to say I don’t have time, but that’s not true. Looking forward to B-Z!

      Thanks Lisa! That’s the truth. Making crafting a priority is something I had to learn to do but I found I really needed it for my soul.
