sunflower silhouette Aug 18

sunflower-silhMy mom  has forgotten over the years to send Christmas and birthday  to grandchildren cards so she decided to send a gift this month and will mail a check  in this card,  (one for each grandson).  I’ve designed a card for the  CAS Watercolour   ‘sunflower’ challenge this  month  with a   ‘Happy grandchild day’ sentiment.   I don’t know if there is a real grandchild day since there are so many other holidays for children.
