I really like that grandparent saying!!!!! And the way you put that card together really reminds me of my gram. The second card is simpler but very effective.

I simply love both these cards. The grandparent one is so unusual with the coloring, layering, and stitching. I think I like this one because I have 8 great grandchildren. I love the pink, yellow and blue in the Birthday card also. Thanks

Beautiful cards. Love the outside the box thinking on the first and the colors of the second.

Love the elegance of your piano card and the simplicity of the flower design. tfs
