Happy Grandparents' Day!

I just found out yesterday that today is Grandparents' Day! I wish I had known earlier. In honor of the occasion, I made this card. It is special to me because it honors my girls' grandparents (I know it only says Grandfathers, but the Grandmas are included in there too :-)), mine and DH's parents who are all wonderful people. It's also special because it has an image of my own illustration, the very first one that GinaK ever produced.

This is for the Moxie Fab Around the House challenge. I stamped the clock on the brown patterned paper and cut it out. I scored a strip of ivory CS to make it look like a base board. The black patterned paper is actually digital(Rich & Shabby by Emily Giovanni for GKD). It's originally in red, but I printed it as black and white on kraft paper.

Stamps: Special Fathers (GinaK Designs)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Black Onyx, Pure Luxury Ivory, Soft Sand, Rich & Shabby digipaper pack (GinaK), PP by My Mind's Eye
Others: Ribbon by Michael's

And here's a card my daughter, Gaby, made for her grandparents. She hand wrote the sentiment. She (and our whole family) just spent the summer with our parents and Gaby (as we all were) was sad to leave, so she'll hurry back to be with them again. Sorry, Moms and Dads, I didn't mean to make you cry :-). WE LOVE YOU!

Tomorrow night begins a blog hop for my latest GinaK Designs stamps, Elegant Verses. Make sure you stop by and get a chance to win it! Theresa's beautiful Autumn Beauty is going on now. Go to her blog for more information and inspiration. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.
