Happy 97th Birthday!

My Grandma will be celebrating her 97th birthday on Thursday!  I wanted to create a fun card for her and the Balloon Ride (X7180B) paper seemed to just fit her personality.   Balloon Ride is so carefree and happy. My Grandma is an amazing woman.  She still lives on her family farm, remarried at the young age of 87, and has traveled all over the world.  She was just featured in the Newburgh Magazine in an article "Love of  Lifetime".  You can read it here if you like - Newburgh Magzine.   It's on page 42.

For this card I used Sketch #22 from Seize the Sketch 

Product Used

The Balloon Ride paper, compliments and assortments will all retire July 31 so if you really like this line you need to order before July 31!

  1. What a charming lady! I just had to read her story after the little glimpse you gave here. My husband's Grandpa passed away in 2013 at the age of 95. He was very spry and I often told him if I wasn't married to his grandson, LOL, I'd marry him. He remarried after a decade of living single back in like 2002, I think it was. And his (2nd) wedding was at a Las Vegas Drive-Thru Chapel. I'm sure your Grandma will be tickled pink to receive this lovely card. Have a great week!

    1. Ahh!! How sweet! and so funny to get married at a LV Drive Through at that age! Guess time was 'wastin'!
