GRANDPA ROCKS!

Happy Friday! Thankfully, it has finally warmed up around here.  We went through a mini cold spell and wouldn't you know it, the building where I work was having maintenance done and the heat was shut off.  BRrrrrrrr! Since we have to keep our froggies warm we had heaters in our lab but boy was it cold going to the bathroom, LOL!


This week's FARM FRESH FRIDAY CHALLENGE is to use Mary Giles' mmmmmarvelous sketch.
I not only love the sketch but I thought her paper and color choices were pretty great too. I used the grandpa from the GRAMMIE AND GRAMPS SET to make a card for my kids to give my FIL on Father's day.

Did you know there is a national grandparents day in the US? It is celebrated on the first Sunday after Labor day which is September 12th this year. This would be the perfect set to celebrate!

Have a great weekend!
