Appreciate Your Grandfather

When I was younger I loved spending time talking with my Grandfather - we talked about everything from planting a garden, the new article in National Geographic, religion to how to “shuck” a lima bean. I wish he was still here to see the woman that I grew up to be and so that we could still talk for hours. So in honor of my Grandfather…

Appreciate your Grandfather

This card is pretty self explanatory - tole technique, gold embossing, crumpled/inked cardstock and lots of linen thread.

If you are lucky enough to still have any of your grandparents in your life give them a hug today!
