Grandpa's Birthday

Morning all! I know, I know...can you believe it a card!

I needed to make my grandpa a card for this birthday this weekend so I sat down and created on Sunday so I could get it in the mail yesterday...which I did. This card, while seeming a bit strange, my grandpa will LOVE. He and my grandma LOVE to play cards and sometimes when I call he'll not be able to talk because they have friends over to play cards...I love that! He will be 84 this year I believe. I love that man so much and I am so blessed to have him be a part of my life!

Just real quick on what I used to make the card. I bought this paper from SU! some time ago to make grandpa and grandma some score pads for their card games, haven't done it yet but I'm gonna, so I thought I could use the paper for his card instead. It's called Jackpot and has a couple of stamp sets that I don't own but would like too at some point! Go figure, I want new stamps...lol! The label stamp and the sentiment is from the SU! SAB set called Vintage Labels. I cut the label out with my Label Punch, ran some black card stock through my Big Shot with my Movers and Shapers Die, and then cut the inside and outside of the label shape out and adhered it to my card. A little ribbon, the wonderful sketch by CPS for the week and I was all set!

So, the next couple of days I have a couple of Valentine's Day things to show you or maybe just a couple of more cards...we'll see. Either way I hope you have a very blessed day!
