Cricut 360 Challenge #10 Grandparents Day

Sorry was gone all day and my post didn't go live!!

Thank you for joining us at Cricut 360 for another great challenge. This week it was about grandparents. Although most of mine have past except for one I do have alot of fond memories growing up and being around them. I was closest to my mother parents and I suppose that was because my fathers mother had past when he was very young, my dads father was a different kind of man. He never let you get to close so I have memories of visiting his farm but most of the fun memories are of my adventures with the animals! I spent alot of time with my mothers parents. My grandmother is still alive and doing well in Tennessee. I made this card mainly thinking of her as she was the one who spent time with us and we loved being around her.

My card is again a 6x6. I am new to card making so I can't seem to get a grip on sizing my items to fit on a regular sized card!! I used Wall Decor and more for the chair and the chandelier. I cut both of them at 2 1/4" I inked the card with Powder Puff ink in Green tea color. The paper is a great paper stack I picked up at Hobby Lobby and its called "Spring Feast" from First Edition. All double sided beautiful pastels. I inked the tip of the chandelier where the light should be and used my foils to add red. I just typed the sentiment in Print Shop. I used my handy dandy corner chomper on the corners. The WONDERFUL little charm that is on the card is from my wonderful friend Corinne at Handmade Halo. Watch for another post of all the goodies I got from her as I am on her new design team!! They are out of Australia and I'm the only US girl!

Now pop over to Cricut 360 if you didn't start there to join in on our weekly challenge and a chance to win a prize!!
