Happy Grandparents Day!

I don't know if you knew this or not, but today is Grandparents Day! Every year ever since my daughter was born we send all of the grandparents a handmade card. This year was especially fun because I let Kaylee color on the inside of the cards, so she really got to put her own signature on them! So to all you grandparents out there, have a great day!
For this first card I used the new Kiwi Kiss color-love it-and a sunflower. My favorite flowers are sunflowers & when I saw this flower stamp from the Friendly Flowers stamp set it just screamed "sunflower" to me!
For this next card I've seen so many people using similar layouts with a bunch of circles & I thought it would be fun to give it a try. And it was! I love how this card turned out! I also love Baja Breeze & Riding Hood Red together! Plus, paired with white it makes for a nice patriotic color combo. To get the white polka dots on the Riding Hood Red card stock I just stamped using VersaMark ink with the Polka Dot Background stamp & then heat embossed with the White Embossing Powder.

So cute! I love the cird with all the circles...and I LOVE how you did the white polka dots. I use that stamp all the time, but I don't know why I've never done white dots. :)
