Happy Grandparent's Day ~ Take1

A card for my son to give my Mom today.
Pink and green are her favorite colors.
Sunday is Grandparents Day, and we're taking my parents out to lunch today.
 I used the layout from CASE Study and the colors from Color Throwdown
I am also entering it into the challenge at CASology for the cue word: family.  
If it weren't for my parents, I obviously wouldn't be here ;). 
 Stay tuned, I will be making another card for my Dad.

Torico is the Muse this month at CASE Study.

Not sure why the circle and white layer appear slightly off, but they are not IRL.

The joys of trying to get a picture on a windy day ~
I can't count how many times this happened!

Supplies ~ 
Stamps:  PTI Sending You & MFT Clearly Sentimental about Grandparents
Paper:  PTI White, SU DSP Patterns Pack, Melon Mambo, Garden Green, Pink Pirouette
Ink:  SU Pink Pirouette, Garden Green & Melon Mambo
Dies:  Spellbinders Circles & Scalloped Circles
Additional  Supplies:  Martha Stewart Rhinestone

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Great cards! I love the beautiful simplicity of the pink card, and that bee on the first card is ADORABLE! Thanks for joining us this week at the CTD. :)

  2. Ha ha! This has happened to me so many times, too! Maybe that's why so many crafters have fancy smancy lights for taking those amazing photos indoors - no wind to contend with. Oh well, we try! Love your grandma's card and know she will, too!
