A Gazillion Cards for Gugger

Gugger, my Grandmother, recently sent me a not so cute birthday card and apologized for not having pretty cards to send -- you see, she is 86 years old and has vision problems so doesn't drive anymore. So, I am sure this was not a hint, or anything, but I have decided to make her a stash of pretty cards that she can send when she needs one. She won't have to wait for someone to take her to the store and then try to figure out with her limited vision which is appropriate. And its been raining all the live long day so I, still in my pjs at almost 6pm, have been in my basement parked at my craft table the entire day! HEAVEN!!

So here are the cards I have made:

My Gugger lives in Florida and although never goes to the beach, I thought this would be nice for her to give out.

All the above are birthday cards. She has a daughter and two sons, 13 grandchildren, and 18 great grandchildren plus a ton of friends :)

She also loves to cook and is famous for her home baked bread and apple pies. So these two are "just because" cards and I left them blank inside.

And this last card is my submission for Heather's "Good-bye Challenge" -- check her blog out here (its great!!):

Okay, I need to give my kidlets some attention and get started on dinner for my husband, who is on his way home now. I will post again tomorrow or very soon!

Happy Creating!
