Linda Callahan, a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals, is going to be a grandma for the first time. Some of her blogger friends and I are surprising and honoring her today with a special blog hop and tribute to grandmothers. Congratulations, Linda!
The next stop on the hop is Cindy Hall.
A garden of love grows in a Grandmother’s heart — Author Unknown
Mary Fish (ME)
All the hoppers (above) were asked to share something that reminds us of our own grandmothers?a lesson taught, favorite colors, a memory. The colors for my card for Linda were inspired by the vibrant china that was my grandmother’s, then my mother’s and now mine. Precious on so many levels.
The little elephant is from Stampin’ Up! “A Fitting Occasion” stamp set. I used new 2012-2014 In Colors Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals and Summer Starfruit. They are so striking against a crisp, Whisper White background!
Here is a photo of my Grandmother Mary Lee (my namesake) with my mother on her lap around 1929.
