Happy Birthday Grandma

My Grandma will be 88 in a couple of weeks. Back before I was working we used to get together to make cards together (yes she took up the craft at 84 years old). Now, between work, kids school functions, sports, orthodontist, dentist, doctors appointments (well you get the picture) etc. I don't get to do that much anymore. Her favorite color is pink but I've been there/done that for her. I think she'll like the orange. I used a PSX teacup and saucer and put crackle glaze on it to give it an antique look. The cool bracket around the Happy Birthday phrase is from Boss Kuts and I used the Stampin' Up Word Window punch to make the oval window. The embossing was done with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and the border is from Fiskars. I love making cards for her. The only thing I don't like is that she compares her cards to mine and gets down on herself. For a woman who never did anything artistic in her life until she was 84 she's amazing and I tell her that every chance I get.
