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.
