Postcard to Grandma

grandma

Good morning!!  Well, it’s the first day back after Spring Break…wish me luck! LOL  I was playing around with my new Tim Holtz Postcard stamp set yesterday.  I  just love all the different postcard images from it and thought it would be fun to create a little postcard message for it using some Verve stamps.  The main panel on Karen’s Sweet Sunday Sketch today was the perfect size for a postcard! I also tried a new shape for my chipboard frame as well as some new Tattered Angels chalkboard spray.  I have some old Hero Arts postage and French script stamps and added those as well :)  I will definitely be making more of these ;)  Hope you have an amazing start to your week.  Thanks for popping by :)  Oh, the new Diva Dare challenge starts today…head over to the Verve Blog for all the deets!!

Isn't Tim Holtz amazingly talented? I have a couple of his dies...and his scissors are a must have...I have two pairs...don't tell :) I love this card...I need a Verve sentiment with Nana for my mum and grandmother!! Hope your first day back at school was a smooth one...does the countdown start for the end of the year now?

How ingenius! I love it, Maureen. You rock! (off to go double check I have both of those sets.)

Pretty funny... I looked at the most recent comment and thought, "I don't remember commenting on this card before." And then realized it wasn't me -- it was another Janelle! haha! So, anyway, I LOVE this card. Brilliant use of the "Because of You" set by pairing it with the postcard. I may have to use this idea for a card for my mom. She would treasure it. :) Thanks for the inspiration!
