Designs stamps! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a couple of days after the hops!!

I'm loving the simple elegance of this set!!!  Not only do I love the images but the sentiments are great!!  I haven't really seen any grandparent sets and I think this one is perfect!!  I'm so lucky to still have my Grandma so I will be using this set quite a bit!!!  This card I made for a co-worker who just became a Grandma for the first time!!

It was hard deciding which of the images from Melanie's new set to use!!  They are all great and will be getting lots of love!!  I finally decided on the chevron stripes, I wanted to use a brighter color but didn't want my card to be blinding so I added gray, I accidentally fell in love with this color combo!!  :)
