For Gran

Well as Grandparents day is coming up it was nice to see a couple of challenges that have embraced the day, it is such a shame we don't all make more of the day especially in the uk, same as celebrating our siblings  and offspring, it's always nice to feel special to someone and a card just makes it that bit extra special too.

This is from my son to his gran, he remembered sending cards last year and loved the idea one off the few times when I said he had cards to write that he hasn't moaned about leaving his beloved computer game, boy is he going to be in for a shock when it's back at school all day. Home education is great for him as we set out what had to be covered and he just got on with it no distractions and he so hates it in school when he wants to work and others in class don't and distrupt. I keep telling him 6th form should be different and have my fingers crossed behind my back.

The card as I said is for my mum and her favourite season is autumn, so an autumnal card for her, I like a sap posted my in laws cards without taking photos so only one grandparent card so far to show till I've done my dads.

The layout is from the pixie cottage and the image is a magnolia I got in a rak I think or won not sure which but one or the other as I don't have this image but it is on my list.I coloured in my promarkers just love how they blend together, I'm sure copics do too but I don't have any of them so can't say for sure.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;_

Sew many challenges-grandparents day
Playdate cafe-colour challenge
the Pixie cottage-layout and optional family theme
Magnolia stamp lovers-fall colours
