Grandparents Day!

September 9 is right around the corner!  Why is that important?  Well, if you have grandchildren, then hopefully you will hear from them or be with them on that day because it's Grandparent's Day!  I am a grandparent of 4 fabulous kids - 3 girls and 1 boy.  The apple of my eye!  I have a magnet on my refrigerator that says, "Grandchildren are God's gift for NOT strangling your teenagers."  LOL!  If I knew how much fun grandchildren were, I would have had them first.

Anyway, I made this card as a member of the Design Team for Bowdabra.  I'm sad to say that this is my last official card that I've made for them as part of their DT.  I've enjoyed working with them.  They are really the best and so very professional and wonderful to work with.  I'm sure going to miss them, but life goes on.

I never had a grandparent living, so she adopted me when I was 21. I must find a magnet like the one you have for my parents as they had their hands full with us 6, and now have 10 grands so far. Have a great weekend.
