Grandparents Cards!

Hello happy Tuesday!  I leave for Scrapfest in 1 day! I am soooo excited!  I can't wait to get away with my girlfriends and shop, hit scrapfest, see some crafty friends!  Enjoy time away from my wonderful family!! We are so busy I hardly have time to miss them, instead I shop for them, lol!!!!

I have some great news, I had two cards picked up for publication in the Create:  Stamping Idea Book!!!  I can't tell you how happy it makes me!  And what a great start to my week!

Today I am here with a few cards I made for Grandparents day.  I know it's sometime this month but my church celebrated it this past Sunday!  Every year it sneaks up on me and I don't have a card for it, and in my hubby's family they exchange cards for this!  Luckily I realized on Saturday so I got to work and made 3 simular cards for my parents, hubby's and his nana!

I stamped one of the flowers from the Blossom Art set in barn door, wild honey, spiced marmalade Tim Holtz Distress Inks. Than I embossed it in white and did the resist technique with the inks.  I used Hero Arts layering papers as my card base.  I had a hard time choosing the sentiment and went with this one, it seemed fitting!  :>  I am entering this card into the Lily Pad Cards Resist Challenge!  And into this month's Hero Arts challenge under the fall category! 

Well I am off to bed!  Hope your having a great week!  :>

Anita: I had fun flipping through your blog, and viewing your bright and beautiful creations. You have a real eye for embossing, texture and style. I look forward to visiting again to see more of your work. I would like to invite you to visit my blog as well. I'm having a give-away of an antique floral frog. I hope you will visit and read about it. I am also a Christian Stay-at-Home Mom, and love to paper craft. Hope to see you soon at:
