Thinking of Grandma

Three generations: Mom, G'ma, & I
I love my Grandma!  She is such a classy lady, and so much fun!  One of my favorite outings with her was going to see my favorite magician, David Copperfield.  He was walking through the audience looking for a volunteer and I was on the end of the aisle.  He slowed down before walking just past me -- G'ma and I were like school girls.  LOL...that was a while ago, but we had a good laugh about it.  In October, my G'ma, Mom, my sister Beth, and I are all going to Frankenmuth, MI and I am so excited!  It's an annual event for Mom & G'ma and I've only been able to go with them once, but I out shopped them at the time.  My guess is that they've both recouped enough for Beth & I to join them--should be fun.  hee hee.

Anyway, I thought I'd pop in with a card I made for my Grandmother.  I used Cricut's Mother's Day 2010 cart to cut out the frames & the phrase "Grandma" w/shadow from coordinating cardstock, by My Mind's Eye -- I used foam dots under Grandma to add dimension.  If you look closely you'll see the off white part of the frame is a perfect fit on the oval edge, but on the deco edge I took a pair of scissors and hand cut that edge to the thickness I was wanting it to be, to show more of the paisley effect.  I like it wonky & a bit off center, so I wasn't too careful with my precision -- adds to the homemade effect.  =)  I added some inking to the edges of the card, and finished it off with a few rhinestones.

My other grandparents have already passed on, but I'm so glad I still have this time with my Grandma -- I hope I never take that time for granted. 

I hope you're enjoying time with your loved ones today.
Blessings, Lisa
