SU Family Reunion with Grandpa

I just got back from visiting my parents and my grandparents this evening. I am so blessed to have both of  them live only 45 minutes away from me in a lovely over 55 retirement community. My husband is away on business so I got to eat my mom’s homestyle cooking tonight. I can’t express how wonderful the four of them are…they would do anything, at anytime, for anyone! I was reminded as I drove home that I need to cherish every moment with them and not take them for granted. I wanted to post a card for The Friday Mashup # 104  tonight so I made my grandpa’s birthday card for when he turns 90- a simple card for a man who is no frills just the epitome of honor and integrity. Notice the umbrella the embossed man is holding? Sorry, I could not mash it up with a Double Z fold this time but I did combine it with the Dynamic Duos #47 colors this week.

  1. What a fantastic card for your grandpa. I love that image…so clean and simple, yet very powerful.

    And yes, enjoy every moment! I lost my beloved grandparents a few yrs ago….Grandma in June 2008 and Grandpa May 2009. I miss them terribly!

    Thanks for playing along with us at The Friday Mashup!

  2. Fabulous card Cindy! Love that embossed main image, and the embellishments you’ve used are perfect with this colour combo! (Did you know this is the colour combo over at Dynamic Duos this week?). Thanks for playing along with the Friday Mashup this week!

  3. What a fabulous embossing folder–so perfect for the challenge and your sweet grandfather. How wonderful to have them in your life! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog!
