91 years

Happy Wednesday everyone!!! What a great week has turned out to be. I tell you, going to church and being spiritually recharged and then getting up early and doing a few minutes of workout is just amazing. I didn't mention in my last post but Monday I did wake up with a migraine which made the first half of my day horrible but I made myself get out of a funk. It helps when you get new stamps and copics in the mail hehehe. I will share more about that tomorrow.

Today I am going to share with you the card I made my Grandmother for her 91st Birthday last Saturday. It was an awesome day with family. My Grandmother amazes me. For 91 she is still really aware of things and although she does have some medical issues she is doing real well. I can't wait to share another wonderful year with her.

For the card I wanted to use melon berry since I got it and still haven't used it. I don't know what it is I just haven't grabbed for it yet. But I LOVE it. I do have to say though, I made this card at my sisters house so I still haven't used MY melon berry ink pad.

It was fun to use all of my sisters goodies though. She jokes that you can go shopping in her craft room. I would have to say that I agree with that. With me I am a penny pincher and not much finances to support my stamping habit so when I get to go to her house and craft I get excited because I get to use all the tools or supplies I haven't yet been able to either afford or force myself to buy.

I love how this turned out and so glad I got to share it with my Grandmother. I love her dearly. I just wish I had gotten a picture of her with my boys. It would make for a very cherished memory.

Here are the deets:
paper: PTI kraft, stampers select white, aqua mist, melon berry.
stamps: PTI life and birthday basics
ink: PTI melon berry and true black
flowers: I am sure are primas
extras: silver brads (have no idea, my sisters stash) and shimmerz

Thanks for stopping by!!!
