Kindle for Grandma

Mother's Day approaches! My grandma has always been very good to us grandkids, and now that most of us are earning a living wage my cousins and i have made it a habit to try and give as good as we've gotten on Mother's Day.
My Grandma certainly isn't lacking in worldly comforts, but her eyesight is going and she was always a reader. While technology isn't her forte, this year it was clear that the Kindle would be an invaluable asset to her.
As the artist in the family, the burden of card-making always falls to me. Word to the wise, artist-children: once you hand-make that first thank you note or birthday card, a precedent is set FOR LIFE. You will never, EVER be able to present a store bought card again.

(EVER)

Anyway, this is what i made this year! I haven't added text yet. Maybe it doesn't need it (except perhaps "happy mother's day grandma", that might be helpful).

Great card, Kindle should use it as an advert. And such good advice to artist/children. I've been making my own Christmas cards for over 20 years, and the one year I missed I caught hell from so many people.

I agree with Heather up there, I love it even without words!

A very lucky grandma. Happy mommy day!

Looks great! C'mon, admit it, when you can make great cards you can't bring yourself to just buy one...
