Grandparents Day Blog Hop-My Cricut Craft Room


Hello and welcome to the My Cricut Craft Room Grandparents Day Blog Hop! If you just happened to stop by from your dashboard please start at the beginning at My Cricut Craft Room! You won't want to miss any of the wonderful projects we have to share today AND one lucky winner that hops today will win a $25 gift certificate to Erica's Craft Room!!

I am so lucky to still have a set of Grandparents around today! I call them Nan and Papa and I just think the world of them! They live back home in Missouri but I am still very close with them. My Nan  and Papa took me everywhere when I was a child. (I was the first grandchild and I admit, I was spoiled rotten!) They took me fishing out on the boat, traveling, and even let me "work" at their business and answer the telephone. I still remember getting all excited when the phone rang and I got to answer and say "Hough Lumber"! LOL  Ahh, the wonderful memories!!

Here is the card and gift card holder I made to share with you today~


I used the CTMH Artiste Cricut cartridge for the diecut shape, the hearts, the butterfly, and the rolled flowers. I used all different colors of purple cardstock for all of the layers and added some pom pom ribbon and stardust stickles. I used K. Andrew Designs stamps for the "I Love you". 


I used some purple letter stickers I found in my stash on the inside of my card.


I used some butterfly washi tape and the Artiste cartridge for the heart on the gift card holder. Then I used more K. Andrew design stamps for the "for you" sentiment. I hope you like my card today! Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment!

I do have a little candy for one of my followers. I will give one person a little twine sampler package. I will draw one winner on Tuesday, September 11th!

Next you will visit my sweet and talented friend Jessica's blog!

  35. I love being a grandmother, there is nothing else that compares to it. I know what you mean by being the first grandchild, my daughter was the first on both sides of the family and she was beyond spoiled. But i understand now that I have my own grandbabies.
