Greeting Cards for Abuelita

My grandmother (Abuelita in spanish) is one of my most loyal fans :) She is the one who taught me to crochet, first taught me to sew and to this day brags about my beautiful family and anything I create. She glosses over things we're still working on, lol.  I'm pretty sure I also got my love of chocolate from her, but these days she's very careful about how many sweets she eats so my gifts usually revolve around her other favorite things: clothing with a nice feel, perfume and of course, greeting cards!

Yesterday I sent her a batch of some of my latest cards. The following two cards (created based on sketches at Stampin' Addicts) were included in the mix. The first one is one I should make more of considering we have a lot of guys in the family who don't mind hugs and kisses from Abuelita.

And this one is for one of the girls.


 Lastly, here's a closeup of the little flower. It has a little bling hiding in the center :)


Thanks for stopping by and letting me share with you today!
