Being Grandma

I used to dream a bit about what it would be like to be a Grandma.  Beyond the obvious reminder that time is rapidly marching on, the reality of being a Grandma is so much better than I ever imagined it could be!  And that's even taking into account that I only get to see the little guy every few months, because my daughter and her family live about a 10 hour drive from us. 

My little grandson, Parker, is only  31/2 months old, but he is such a little character already!

I wanted to create a special Mother's Day Card for my daughter for her first Mother's Day!  I used the MOJO Monday sketch for this week, #239

and the criteria from The Paper Players challenge for this week's Tic Tac Toe:  I chose square card, ribbon and designer paper, but I also have some dry embossing happening and some blue colours!

Here is the square card I designed:

I used Perfect Plum and Pool Party cardstock, and the Twitterpated DSP I used is in Blushing Bride.  At first I thought it might be Pink Pirouette, but six alliterative "P" colour names is a little too much, don't you think?  The stamp set is Baby Prints from the Occasions Mini catalogue, which has now expired, but there is so much exciting stuff to come from the new Stampin' Up Idea Book and Catalogue 2012-2013!  I'm going to order some the of sneak peek products today, and I will be showing them to you in the near future, so keep checking back.  The new catalogue comes into effect June 1, so I will be hosting a Stamping Spectacular around that time, with great deals and prizes, based on the new catalogue items.  Keep an eye open for that announcement, too.


  1. Gorgeous card!! And your grandson is adorable! I love all that hair.

  2. What a perfect Mother's Day card for a new mother! Love the baby footprints. I'll probably be sorry I didn't get them when I could. Enjoy that grandson. They're really special.
