Celebrating 90 Years + Lovely Laurels Pop Up Card

I spent the long weekend in Michigan visiting my family and celebrating my grandmother's 90th birthday. We had almost the entire extended family together for a big lunch at one of her favorite restaurants! It was lovely!
I drove home with the kids yesterday and now I'm trying to catch up and get ready to celebrate another birthday! My middle daughter turns 9 today!

My gift to my grandmother was cards. I reached out to my friends on Facebook and asked them to help me shower her with cards. By the end of the day, we reached our goal! The final card count was 90 and we expect a few more to come in the mail. A large majority of those 90 were handmade cards and many people used a sticky note or another piece of paper to write their message so that she can re-use the card. She was so happy!! Each envelope was like a little gift and she said she felt like a little kid on Christmas morning!

Here is the card that I made for her. She won't be able to re-use it, but I wanted to do something extra special. I finally broke out the new Lovely Laurels Thinlit dies to create the pop-up. She was impressed with the card and I was impressed by how easy it was to use the dies!

How wonderful to be able to celebrate your grandmother's 90th birthday with her! It brings back memories for me, as I too was able to celebrate a 90th birthday with my own grandmother. Your gift of 90 cards was a great idea. What fun to get all those in the mail.
