Happy mail for Grayson

Hello crafty friends!
I was on vacation last month, when I saw this announcement on the Neat and Tangled blog, about a new card drive for Grayson.

Unfortunately, I didn't have any crafting supplies with me, so this week I made a card for Grayson.

The clear stamp is a freebie that came with Issue 111 April  2013 of Papercrat UK magazine. I colored the image with watercolor pencils. I die cut the letters that spell Grayson in turquoise and white cardstock, to make  a shadow (unfortunately hard to see on the pic), then coated them with glossy accents. I stamped the sentiment from the same set with brown ink and embossed it with pearlescent embossing powder. On the inside I put one strip on the background paper and one of the turquoise cardstock and stamped "This card a big hug" that came in the August card kit by SSS.
I made 2 more cards, one for Aydan, (Grayson's older brother) and another one for the parents that I'll share soon.
I think it's never too late to send them, and I hope this could bring a smile on Grayson's face.
I'm linking this to Amy's blog and Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge.
Thanks for your visit and enjoy your weekend.
