Antique Ornament

Hi all. I thought I would show you what I am sending my Grandparents for a Christmas card this year. My grandpa is 90 and my grandma is 91. They still live in their own apartment and do pretty well on their own. My parents go and play cards with them every afternoon. That must be wierd having your retired son and daughter-in-law come for the afternoon. They all just crack me up! If you feel old some days just think about that. They are both so cute! The set I used for their card is from Clear Dollar Stamps called Antique Ornaments. They don't set up a tree anymore so they will enjoy this ornament.
These are the challenges I am submitting this card into:
Crazy Challenges - Anything
My Time to Craft - Vintage Christmas
Crafty Creations - Card with sentiment
Little Red Wagon - Vintage Christmas
Cute Card Thursday - Anything
Pals Paper Arts - Putin' on the Ritz
Southern Girls - Ribbon madness
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch
Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the week.
