Grandmother You Are Loved

I recently posed a question in a Facebook cardmaking group, asking the members to give me ideas for a challenge theme. I told them I would take one of the ideas and make a card using it.

Sadly I only received a couple of ideas that day and one of them just wouldn't work for me because it was to use the leftover items found on my desk in making a card. Yep, I'm one of those kinds of people - you know the type. I put everything away after every single card... so alas, I had to bypass that suggestion.

That left me with the other suggested theme - make a card using a color you never use with a stamp you've never used, for an occasion you never - or rarely - make cards for. Thanks for challenging me, Danielle!

Challenge on!

I'll admit I struggled with the color idea because I think I tend to use a variety of colors... I finally went with lavender because I seldom use that color.

The stamp I've never used was easy - I have a lot of those to choose from. I chose the Tulips stamp set from Waffle Flower. I've not owned it very long and was eager to ink it up.

I tend to be a just because kind of stamper - no occasions and not even sentiments much of the time. For the occasion, I went with Grandparents Day, though it doesn't specifically say that. I'm pretty much certain I've never made a Grandparents/Grandmother card before because my grandparents have all been gone longer than I've been cardmaking.

I doubt Danielle will see this blog post, but I'll be sharing this card on FB and she'll see it there. I hope she'll like it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Very pretty card and a wonderful idea. I am sure there are plenty of grandchildren out there looking for a card to send to their grandmother. Beautifully colored!
