Thankful Thursday - Grandparent's Day Challenge

***Click HERE for the Once Upon Paper Blog Hop***

Hello my crafty friends, and welcome to another Thankful Thursday challenge.  This week our challenge is to create something for Grandparent's Day.  This challenge was a little bittersweet because it was me and my little assistant's last project together before she headed off to Kindergarten last Friday!  We made some thank cards for her and her sisters to give to their favorite Grand P's for Granparent's Day which is on Sept 11 (don't get too attached to this one Mammy and Nokomis because she made a few different ones, I don't want to spoil your surprises...hehe)!



I didn't realize that my assistant had stamped everything on shimmer paper until after she did it.  She really like the "sparklies" on it and worked out ok.  I was going to let her do the sewing again on this TT project, but it got out of control before she got too far and Mommy had to take over and try to cover up her spot!  She used my new "Doctor Marci" stamp that I had won at Fantabulous Cricut from In a Scrap Creations!  I thought this adorable stamp was fitting since Oldest E is on a kick right now saying she is going to be an animal doctor when she grows up!  I used my Stampin' Write Markers to color her.  Since we are talking about my assistants, here are some pics from their first day of school (since Mommy has been so preoccupied and hasn't put them up yet)!

Super cute LO (hehe!). I like the sewing boo boo in the corner- I thought it was intentional. Very sweet pictures of your girls- I bet they love school. My "assistants" are back at school too (thank goodness!). It makes for peaceful days and quiet nights at our house. Yay School!!

What an adorable card. I love your Dr. Stamp. Your little assistant sure is talented. The girls look so adorable, and they seem to be happy to be venturing into school. How is mom dealing??

Cute card! Is that Cryogen paper I spy Marci on? I've never picked up that much shimmer in my pics so I'm thinking it must be a different brand. Your assistant did good!
