Celebrate the Occasion #29

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Celebrate the Occasion #28!! This week we are to create a project with the subject of "Grandparents Day".

I have been wanting to make a card using the Nifty Fifties sewing machine and the subject fit well for me. I know my mom did a lot of sewing when I was growing up and I am sure her mom did as well. I just thought the sentiment would be perfect for the subject. Every stitch sewn in love, I can just imagine her now..... Miss ya grandma!

I hope you have enjoyed my card, now it's time for you to get those creative juices flowing and link your project to Celebrate the Occasion, make sure you invite a friend to join in on the fun!

I will also be entering this card into the fllowing challenges:
